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.
It's good to talk.
