Two years after the Occupy Wall Street movement shifted the conversation on economic inequality, Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez looks at its origins in New York City’s Zuccotti Park and its continued legacy in a number of different groups active today.
Goodman and Gonzalez speak with Nicole Carty, actions coordinator with The Other 98 Percent, and a facilitator of general assemblies and spokescouncil meetings during Occupy, where she was a member of the Occupy People of Color Caucus. Also among the program’s guests is Nathan Schneider, editor of the website Waging Nonviolence, and a longtime chronicler of the Occupy movement for Harper’s Magazine, The Nation, The New York Times, and The Catholic Worker. Scheider’s new book, “Thank You Anarchy: Notes from the Occupy Apocalypse,” chronicles Occupy’s first year.
