CR-CL’s Executive Editors for Online Content Noah Kaplan and Matt Giffin are joined by Ariel Oshinky and Stephen Squibb, members of the Occupy Boston Communications Committee. The show begins with our weekly news round-up, This Week in Civil Rights and Civil Liberties.
Ariel and Stephen discuss the motivating ideology of the Occupy Movement, the relationship between Occupy Boston, the city, the police, and the courts, and the future of Occupy as a movement. Will Occupy suffer the fate of the Tea Party and be coopted by mainstream politics? What has Occupy already accomplished? What can it accomplish in the upcoming election; in a year; in five years?
