New Book Reveals the Anarchist Identity of Occupy Wall Street NYC
Commemorating the 2-year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street on Sept. 17, Mark Bray’s book Translating Anarchy: The Anarchism of Occupy Wall Street delves into the underlying anarchist politics of the movement to highlight the pivotal role of anarchism in its formation, operations, and self-presentation to the media.
Translating Anarchy tells the story of the anti-capitalist anti-authoritarians of Occupy Wall Street who strategically communicated their revolutionary politics to the public in a way that was both accessible and revolutionary. OWS organizer Mark Bray combines his direct experience in the movement with nearly 200 interviews with the most active, influential architects of Occupy Wall Street, to reveal the revolutionary anarchist core of Occupy.
By "translating" their ideas into everyday concepts like community empowerment and collective needs, these anarchists sparked the most dynamic American social movement in decades.
Tynicka and Liz talk about the shift of the revolution to social media. The revolution will not be televised, literally.

The longer GOP and CEOs keep the masses jobless: The more money CEOs profit and spend on elections, to run against candidates who want to work to improve the quality of life for all Americans;
The more CEOs spend to buy the GOP lawmakers to rule agains the better quality of life for all Americans;
The more citizens will fall into poverty for lack of employment and lack of wages with disposable income. JOBs is the solution. Not job creation! Just hire APPLICANTS and stop sending US JOBS OVERSEAS. SUPPORT OWS. They changed the course of America
Tonight, we revisit some of the recent audio mixes from issue episodes. The themes are still currennt events, although 2 of the topics are overshadowed or forgotten in the mainstream because the other issue serves their agenda more to oversaturate the narrative with their divisive point of view.
These topics are all precursors to what some are calling the "Negro Spring". I don't know if thst title holds with it some historical racism or if it shows the reality of modern prejudices and delusions of a post racial Murica. What it does show, is that it's again time to fight for the underdog, and it is all of us.
Today's guests join us in reflection and expectation of tomorrow: OWS #17 ... a return to Zucotti Park and Occupy Wall Street. A year of she bop she bang political crisis to crisis, far & near East unrest, Nuclear horror & the edge of monetary collapse.
Indypendent online editor Manny Jalonschi and writer - engineer David Williams join a roundtable discussion today on the events unfolding in our world and tomorrow's moments of renewal / revival for OWS.

Caleb Maupin will be on tonight's show at 11 PM Eastern. His appearance last week was cut short and BTR had some connectivity issues so we are going to have a do-over. He is an activist, organizer, political analyst and reporter.
Subjects should include... Imperialism, Capitalism, Communism, Socialism, Ukraine, Syria, OWS, Cecily McMillian, The Fight for $15 and a Union, Class Consciousness, the push towards a new Cold War (and hot war), trade deal betwen Russia and China, Petro dollars, NSA and whatever else comes to mind.
I'll ask him about a few organizations he is involved with such as FIST/Fight Imperialism Stand Together, Workers.org/Workers World Party, and the International Action Center/IAC.
We are both now in NYC and there is a lot going on in the Social Justice arena, but that doesn't mean YOU can't get involved in creating a better world in your own city. Listening to what others are doing is always helpful, in my view, so please tune in at 11 PM Eastern - and - share this program with your social networks.
