Description/Abstract of your Event:
While the interconnections and similarities among occupations in many cities have occupied much of the information and discussion in the US, precursors and off-shoots of
#OWS exists in different parts of the world. In this session reports from people involved in North American #OWS will be discussed together with reports from Asia, Europe and Latin America. By bringing together historical, analytical and tactical questions, we hope to illustrate these movements' common grammar of autonomy, direct democracy, and international solidarity. Presentations will be structured around themes related to: history of specific actions, public reaction, political repertoires of struggle, internal organizational dynamics and broader political impact.
