Auteur: Chomsky, Noam
Sub titel: Occupied Media Pamphlet Series
Since itís appearance in Zuccotti Park in September 2011, the Occupy movement has spread to hundreds towns, cities and college campuses across the United States. To date, more than 6,700 people have been arrested in 112 U.S. cities, a number that grows daily. No longer occupying small tent camps, the movement now occupies the national conscience as its messages spread organically from street protests, to op-ed pages to the halls of power. From the movementís onset, Noam Chomsky has supported its critique of corporate corruption and encouraged its efforts to increase civic participation, economic equality, democracy and freedom for the 99%. Chomsky argues that if we continue to follow the model of growth set for us by the 1%, we'll be like lemmings walking off a cliff. The only alternative is to get involved, an opportunity being multiplied by the Occupy movement in hundreds of cities, towns, college campuses, and inner city neighboods. If not now, when? If not us, who? In `Occupy', Chomsky comments on the cornerstone issues, questions and demands that have been driving ordinary Americans into the streets.
