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.

We spoke about his comments on the Black Bloc and radical violent groups, cause of much debate in the past year. Continue reading

Manifestation 22 Mai 2012 Montreal

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 Wall Street Day 20

Image by waywuwei via Flickr

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.  Although, I agree with Chris that violence for the sake of violence is counter-productive, it’s been my experience that the violence usually begins with law enforcement, with little, if any, provocation.  Continue reading

Chris Hedges’ syndicated Truthdig column “Black Bloc: The Cancer in Occupy,” printed Tuesday at Truthout and elsewhere, created quite a stir among members of Occupy Wall Street (OWS). Some endorsed the sentiment. Among others, including some central organizers who helped plan the action over the summer, the column raised eyebrows and hackles. I compiled what I considered to be the best critiques of the piece that I came across (as well as my own questions) and interviewed Hedges over the phone.
