After his lecture for a Truthdig fundraiser in Santa Monica on 10/13/13, I had a chance to ask Chris Hedges a few questions about his contention that ideas can only be learned through books, the falling out with Occupy over his comments on the black bloc, and what’s the plan after civil disobedience.

CUTV met with journalist Chris Hedges on the occasion of the publication of La Mort de l’Élite Progressiste, French translation of The Death of the Liberal Class, by Lux Éditeur. We asked him about the Occupy movement and what should follow, as well as the relationship conservative America might have with any possible revolution. We spoke about his comments on the Black Bloc and radical violent groups, cause of much debate in the past year. Continue reading

Occupy Tactics – Violence and Legitimacy in the Occupy Movement and Beyond:
A Debate between Chris Hedges and Brian Traven of the CrimethInc, Ex-Workers Collective on Tactics & Strategy, Reform & Revolution.
I gave a talk last week at Canada’s Wilfrid Laurier University to the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. Many in the audience had pinned small red squares of felt to their clothing. The carre rouge, or red square, has become the Canadian symbol of revolt. It comes from the French phrase carrement dans le rouge, or “squarely in the red,” referring to those crushed by debt.

Occupy DC at McPherson Square celebrated their 6 month anniversary by switching sides and marching in support of the 1%. The Black Bloc Infiltrates the march halfway through and refrains from eating any of the 1% ers for lunch. Thank you Food Not Bombs.

Our movement needs to use every opportunity to build resistance to the agenda of the 1 percent–whether that means bigger struggles or smaller ones.
THE OCCUPY encampments of last fall are nearly all gone–cleared, often brutally, in a series of police raids.
Nevertheless, the Occupy movement sticks to U.S. politics like a burr. Even Republican presidential candidates have acknowledged “vulture capitalism” and inequality. Democrats talk tough about how they’ll stand up for the 99 percent…if only you vote for them in November.
(SOAPBOX #120) – Cindy remarks: Journalist/activist, Chris Hedges, caused quite a stir this past week when he wrote a column for Truthdig saying, in essence, that the “black bloc anarchists” were killing the Occupy movement. The response was immediate and sometimes fierce.
