Chris Hedges and CrimthInc. debate Violence, Occupy, Tactics [video]

Opinie, gepost door: nn op 20/09/2012 09:04:04

Radical journalist Chris Hedges and a speaker from the CrimethInc Collective debate the legitimacy of tactics in the Occupy movement and beyond. The debate started earlier this year when Hedges wrote one of his worst articles, calling "the black bloc" the "cancer in occupy". Much debate ensued, and many articles were published all over the web.

Nevertheless, this is the first time where Hedges debates face-to-face with someone defending black bloc tactics at certain points. The debate is much broader, however, and Hedges and the CrimethInc-speaker are much in agreement about most things. Both are very strong and make interesting points. All in all, a good debate that goes against the grain of dogmatism in certain parts of the movement (and against the dogmatism Hedges showed earlier, and is now matched by some parts of the childish audience).
