Overview

Danny Schechter the "News Dissector," a veteran journalist, filmmaker, and participant in many social movements, began covering Occupy Wall Street for Al Jazeera and other leading websites, international TV News programs, and Progressive Radio Network shows. Occupy collects his essays, blog reports, and movement documents. As the filmmaker behind "In Debt We Trust" (2006) and "Plunder: The Crime of Our Time" (2010), Danny Schechter has specialized in exposing Wall Street crime in three books and many reports. He says, "This is the movement we have been waiting for to 'fight the power.' Even as debt strangled millions, and unemployment rose alongside foreclosures, economic issues only remained fodder for boring pundits and self-styled experts. There was no activist response. Until now." Schechter explains, "Occupy Wall Street has a way of touching you personally with its gutsy honesty and democratic spirit. Yet, I was not always uncritical. I want it to succeed, but I'm also aware of its many contradictions and internal conflicts." *Occupy* provides the News Dissector's in-depth assessment of a global revolt in the making.

    From September 17, 2011 ¿ the first day activists moved into Zuc

    From September 17, 2011 – the first day activists moved into Zuccotti Park near Manhattan’s Wall Street – to November 15, 2011, when the New York City police cleared their encampment, the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement commanded rapt public attention. OWS activists championed social and economic justice, sparking similar Occupy movements in 1,000 cities around the world. Journalist and activist Danny Schechter’s slim book provides a day-to-day report of the OWS movement’s encampment that puts you behind the scenes. With the cautionary note that Schechter is a participant and not an objective observer, getAbstract recommends his on-the-scene, impassioned account of fervent participatory democracy.
