Occupation Nation- Occupy as a Movement

Now entering its second month, Occupy protests are popping up across America and across the Atlantic. It’s a leaderless force with no clear agenda. Everything seems to be up for grabs, from unemployment to education- housing to healthcare. Though critics say this public outcry is too amorphous to affect anything, everyone from top tier celebrities to presidential hopefuls is responding to this tug of war between Main Sreet and Wall Street. Though the jury is still out on what this consciousness raising outburst can accomplish- will history judge Occupy as a social movement? Or a mere moment?

We talk with University of Massachusetts Boston political science professor Erin O'Brien, and Marshall Ganz, one of America’s top organizers and trainers for political campaigns, unions, and nonprofits. He is a senior lecturer in public policy at Harvard University, teaching leadership, organization, and strategy in social movements, civic associations, and politics.
