Well, I think in the Occupy movements this is probably what I’ve been waiting to see all this time. This video is what prompted me to write What I Wanted To See At Occupy Wall Street And What I Actually Saw because at Occupy Oakland I finally felt I got to see what I wanted and needed to see at these Occupy movements given the state of things.
Deep Green Resistance: Strategy to Save the Planet co-author Lierre Keith (seated beside Deep Green co-author Derrick Jensen) is on point here from start to finish when she opens with encouraging and supportive words then relays the request Indigenous peoples that the Occupy Movement take the word “Occupy” out of their movement. She addressed violence, non violence, destruction of habitats, imperialism, resistance, patriarchy, and the Pollyanna utopianism that I think these occupy movements are in danger of. Finally, someone who doesn’t want to be a cool parent!
If you’re going to have a book list like this then someone needs to tell it like it is to you.
