Listen: Ep. 2011 - 38: - Occupy Wall St Wrap
Broadcast on 2SER 107.3 fm Sydney 13 October 2011
With Simon Unwin and James Hitchcock
Today we bring you some voices of Occupy Wall Street, a movement partly inspired by the non-hierarchical occupations of public squares that typified the uprisings of the Arab Spring. Hopefully this will give you a sense of how things are feeling on the ground in New York City.
The occupation’s grabbed a lot of headlines and attention in the last 5 or 6 days after a series of brutal police crackdowns precipitated a rapid swelling of the number of people camping in Liberty Plaza and Zucotti Park.
