Metamorphoses of Occupy: Radical Resistance Tour


Occupy was never a homogeneous or uniform movement.  Nor did it, of course, create from nothing protests against State-Capital in the United States.  It did however bring together and animate challenges to reigning powers in the country to a degree that has not been seen since the 1960s and 70s.  And the resonances of Occupy continue.

The Radical Resistance Tour is a chronicle of these ongoing resonances, of the diversity of actors, concerns, practices of resistance that continue.  Through a tapestry of struggles, from West Virginia to Chattanooga, New Orleans to East Texas, Albuquerque to Tucson,  emerges a picture of the violence of Capital and the courage and creativity of those who resist, a resistance that pushes many of those involved to desire a world beyond capitalism.

The Radical Resistance Tour is an autonomous project by a group of Occupy Wall Street organizers. We're touring the United States and interviewing activists, people participating in direct actions, and people working to create a dual power model. We want to show people who aren't on the ground how people are being directly affected by decisions being made by corporations and governments that put profits over people and the environment. We want to inspire more people to fight back by featuring people who are already fighting back, and hopefully gain some shared wisdom by listening to how others are resisting.
