The State of the Occupation

BOSTON, Mass. — Everything about the Occupy Wall Street movement is global. Even its origins are rooted a long way from Zucotti Park. It was Tunisians and Egyptians who first “occupied” a central square, or circle as the case might be, last year. Months before Americans built their camps, angry youth across Europe were already occupying public spaces, demanding better economic conditions. Occupy Wall Street itself was largely the brainchild of a Canadian.

The American Spring: A preview

As the Occupy movement publicly emerges from a winter thaw and gears up for its first nationwide protest in months, activists are struggling to balance a desire to broaden the movement’s appeal with efforts to maintain some strategic control: “We don’t want to exclude people. Lets bring in the libertarians and the Tea Party.”

BOSTON, Mass. — Recently, I waited in vain in a chilly but sunny park for a peace vigil that had been advertised on the Occupy Boston website. The minutes ticked by. No one came. Unless the protesters were cleverly disguised as harried businessmen, mothers playing with their children, or dogs gamboling on the grass, the peace vigil was a bust.

I trudged home to mull the effects the Occupy movement has had on the political scene, and what role it could still play in the crucial months from now until the presidential elections in November.
