Overview

Praise for Marina Sitrin's previous works:

"'Another world is possible' was the catch-phrase of the World Social Forum, but it wasn't just possible; while the north was dreaming, that world was and is being built and lived in many parts of the global south. With the analytical insight of a political philosopher, the investigative zeal of a reporter, and the heart of a sister, Marina Sitrin has immersed herself in one of the most radical and important of these other worlds and brought us back stories, voices, and possibilities."—Rebecca Solnit

"Through her deeply respectful documentary editing, Marina Sitrin has produced a work that embodies the values and practices it portrays."—Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis

While the global Occupy movement is widely seen as unprecedented, its language and organizing practices are shaped and inspired by diverse historical precedents in the United States and around the world. Marina Sitrin and Dario Azzellini introduce the reader to the theory and practices of the movement and explore linkages and connections toward the dream of a common language of struggle, justice, democracy, and liberation.

Marina Sitrin is an author and activist. An early organizer of the Occupy movement, she has been interviewed in Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Democracy Now! and more.

Dario Azzellini is an activist, writer, and filmmaker. He is a lecturer at the Johannes Kepler University (Linz, Austria) and holds PhDs in political science and sociology. His latest book, together with Immanuel Ness, is Ours to Master and to Own.
