Occupy Tactics: Violence and Legitimacy in the Occupy Movement and Beyond


 

A Debate between Chris Hedges and the CrimethInc. Ex-Workers Collective on Tactics & Strategy, Reform & RevolutionWhy a debate?

Since Occupy Wall Street took Zuccotti Park in September 2011, there has been a resurgence of social movement activity in the United States. As momentum has increased, age-old questions over tactics, strategy, and goals have returned to the fore.

 

What is violence? Who gets to define it? Do illegal actions have a place in our movements?

This discussion never takes place in a vacuum or on a level playing field; rather, it occurs within the context of a struggle that is already in progress, where every statement has immediate ramifications for the participants. Differing tactical approaches often reflect fundamental differences in strategy and goals.

While debating black bloc tactics with Brian, Chris Hedges wins a permanent injunction barring enforcement of the indefinite detention provisions of the NDAA. Props Chris.
