On February 15, 2012, RevolutionTruth hosted a live panel discussion with Chris Hedges, Kevin Zeese, Dr. Margaret Flowers, Lucas Vasquez, Georgia Sagri, and Cari Machet to discuss anarchist philosophy, Black Bloc, and Occupy.

Chris Hedges’ Truthdig column, “The Cancer in Occupy” was a searing condemnation of Black Bloc as part of the Occupy movement.

This article comes at a time when Occupy is suffering from coordinated and vicious attacks from the outside, weariness, winter (in the Western hemisphere), and rifts on the inside, and a seeming disconnect between the larger public and the movement itself. The responses to Hedges’ article have been quite polarized. Some resonated with his obvious frustration and concern; others found the piece to be an offensive conflation of tactics and groups and a misguided attack on anarchists. The piece generated intense debate around the world, opening up discussions that are delving into the heart of the nature of Occupy and the profoundly diverse perspectives embodied in this movement.

Denial of Service Attack Against Chris Hedges Panel


February 18, 2012

On Wednesday February 15, we launched several concurrent denial of service attacks against a website hosting an online panel discussion entitled “Occupying Beyond Divisions: Anarchy, Black Blocs and Protests” with Chris Hedges. After initially only creating a few minor disruptions, it was during the second half of the talk that we were finally successful in taking down the entire website, which remained offline further into the night.
