Threads of Occupy talk at Peace History Conference

I was pleased to be invited to talk on Occupy at the opening panel of last week’s Peace History Conference, alongside Sam Walton (on the role of St Pauls),¬†David Fernandez-Arias (on Occupy MCR) and Jacqui Burke giving us historical context with a reading of accounts from the Peterloo massacre.

There’s lots of video available from this panel and Saturday’s talks here:¬†

My talk focused on the ideological content of occupation as a direct action tactic. You can flick through the Prezi presentation on the left, hit the Peace History Hub for video.
