Occupy!

There has been a lot of powerful commentary on recent developments in the Occupy movement. Most of it has been, unsurprisingly, in non-mainstream media. Here are a few links that might be of interest.

On the Berkeley events here and here (with some video of the police breaking up the occupation). Jonathan Simon is good on this too.

A medievalist writes about the raid on Occupy Wall Street; and on the destruction of the OWS library see the Library Journal (via here) and the Verso blog. The last link also points to the forthcoming book published by Verso – Occupy!: Scenes from Occupied America. It will be out very soon and the intention is it is free at Occupy events and on sale elsewhere.

Stephen Graham was on Democracy Now discussing this in the wider context of urban policing strategies (via the Verso blog). Space and Politics has a valuable analysis. And finally, David Harvey speaking at Occupy London (via here):
