Occupy Tactics: Livestream/Discussion

Daniel Plafker ’15 wants you to justify your actions:

In the runup to the one year anniversary of the Occupy Movement, we will be coming together for a discussion on diversity of tactics.

The event will begin with a live-streamed viewing of the CUNY-organized debate on Violence and Legitimacy in Occupy and Beyond between journalist Chris Hedges and B. Traven, a member of the Crimethinc. Ex-Workers’ Collective, followed by our own open discussion on tactics and the legitimacy of violence and other tactics in social movements and as tools for political change.

The event will be open to the entire Middletown community including Wesleyan students, faculty, staff, and other non-university-affiliated folks.

Bring your dinner and add your voice to the dialogue.

Time: Today, 7PM
Place: 41 Wyllys, Room 114

Occupy is Occupying Wesleying. Again.
