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.
Foot in mouth disease claims another victim. This one is not a first time offender. But the object of his insanity this time is Code Pink, his arch nemesis. Why are they his antithesis? McCain is what we in the peace-preferring normal human majority know that McCain is what we affectionately call a warmonger. This outburst was, coincidently, tied to defending a fellow warmonger.
Kissinger is known and reviled the world over as much more than a warmonger, but as a war criminal. Several countries have attempted to get an arrest warrant issued at the Hague, unsuccessfully. In lieu of actual justice, Medea Benjamin and her cadre of fearless activists took action the best way they know how, interrupting business as usual to draw attention to the injustice.
This week we explore the lives of this warmongering Odd Couple. Can two ageing white guys with a taste for brown blood live in a Senate hearing chamber? One declared a criminal, one just batshit crazy? We'll see.
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
Tynicka and Liz talk about the shift of the revolution to social media. The revolution will not be televised, literally.

Does justice have a race, does it reside in certain neighborhoods, or does justice have an IQ test? Is it enforced on style of attire or religion and social standing
While everyone waits to hear if Officer Wilson will face trial for the shooting death of unarmed Michael Brown. The Show-Me-State Missouri's Governor Nixon. has placed the state into a state of emergency. The Show Me State has the National Guard on stand by, and of course we have protestors, communist groups, special interest groups such as Black Panthers and KKK. Gov. Nixon is giving a performance before the verdict is released. What has been released , by Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson. If Officer Wilson is not indicted by the grand jury, he will return to work. Why the state of emergency before verdict is released? Does Gov Nixon, already know the verdict? Is this why Police Chief Jackson stated if not indicted Wilson will be back to work? Can this be a false flag. a preparation to losing 1st amendement right to free speech. How many rights will be taken away. What is it that Gov Nixon wants the world to see? In all this is the victim thought of? Join us tonight while we discuss this and more.
I spent the day in the March Against Capitalism and the demonstration at Radio City Music Hall which was hosting the World Business Forum. I will have some reflections on the day's activities as well as the situation in Hong Kong (now that I think I have it sussed).
Normally my show is Tuesday night but due this week's Wed action, I decided to postpone it a day. I know this is short notice, but what the hell are you doing tonight, anyway?
11:30 PM Eastern is showtime tonight. Invite your friends and enemies to click in and listen to the show. The chat room will be open a few minutes before showtime as well.
Salud, Pinko the Bear

Your host is Gwendolyn H. Barry, and our ?Saturday Afternoon Post? blog cheers team Jack Jodell stops in most Sundays. Join us!
Lots in the news to talk about recently. #OWS anniversary just happened, leading into a climate change march just days later. More police shootings, including one in Savannah. Let's talk. Call in and join the discussion.
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.
