A Youtube video of the talk will be uploaded on Sunday.
I am Einar Stensson, a sociologist at the Stockholm university and activist in the Occupy Stockholm movement during the fall of 2011. After studying the Occupy Oakland movement during my two months in the Bay Area, I will share my conclusions about the occupy movement based on the interviews (no identities will be revealed, only perspectives) I have conducted with various activists in the Occupy Oakland movement.
- Why did the movement start and spread so quickly around the globe?
- How is Occupy organized? Who matters in the movement and why?
- What is the future of Occupy?
I will first talk for around 40 minutes and then open up for questions/discussion.Please buy something at the cafe when you arrive : )
