I respect Chris Hedges immensly, but I wish he would stop talking about OWS as if he was a part of it. I spent every night in the park after work and all day when I had no work. I saw him there twice. He would come in, hold a meeting, and then he would leave. In this talk he says that black bloc wasn’t represented at GAs, his ignorance of the GAs is because he didn’t attend the GAs. Many adherents to the tactics of black-bloc were vocal in the GAs. And in the GAs there was much debate about tactics and much agreement that a variety of tactics was necessary to effectively keep the momentum of our occupation.
Lo, thanks again for your work and I am sorry it’s been so long since I participated.
Great to see you here again, James.
