Interview with Mark Bray and Senia Barragan, Occupy Wall Street media team, conducted by Scott Harris

Although the police carried out New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s order to evict Occupy Wall Street activists and remove their tents and infrastructure from Zuccotti Park with brutal efficiency on Nov. 15, the park remains a hub of the movement. A recent visit to Zuccotti Park found that a large number of activists remained there participating in rallies, organizing protests and conducting daily General Assembly meetings.  Story continues

Interview with Richard Wolff, economics professor emeritus at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, now visiting professor at the New School University's graduate program in international affairs, conducted by Scott Harris

The Democratic and Republican chairmen of the congressional super committee's announcement that they had failed to reach agreement on cutting the nation’s deficit by $1.2 trillion over the next decade was greeted by some with disappointment. But many others were relieved that proposed severe austerity measures were off the table, at least for now. President Obama and congressional legislators from both parties have consistently discussed their desire to reach a so-called “grand bargain” that would reach deficit reduction targets largely by invoking draconian cuts in benefits for recipients of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid in exchange for some modest tax increases.  Story continues

Although Violence Captures Most Attention, Palestinians Carry on with Nonviolent Resistance

Excerpt of speech by Mazin Qumsiyeh, Palestinian professor, author and activist, recorded and produced by Melinda Tuhus

Mazin Qumsiyeh, a professor of genetics who worked at several American universities before returning to his native Palestine, is the author of four books, including his latest, “Popular Resistance in Palestine: A History of Hope and Empowerment.” As an activist as well as an academician, Qumsiyeh had hoped to be a passenger onboard the most recent ship convoy attempting to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza in early November, but was bumped at the last minute when the Turkish government forced organizers to reduce the number of passengers by two-thirds. Professor Qumsiyeh returned to his home in Beit Sahour, near Bethlehem, in time to present a talk on the Palestinian struggle to a group of international solidarity activists.  Story continues
