After the Occupy movements began, the words “income inequality'” quintupled on news databases and yet now it seems the conversation has moved on. Is the Occupy phenomenon the voice of a new progressive movement or a spontaneous short-lived manifestation of dissatisfaction? What is the fate of the 99 percent and the 1 percent as forces of change? Can the Occupy movement occupy the agenda?
Amanda Joy, an Occupy participant and organizer is joined by Joel Westheimer from the University of Ottawa, and Carleton’s Jacqueline Kennelly, author of Citizen Youth: Culture, Activism, and Agency in a Neoliberal Era. Join us for a conversation that speaks to the very heart of our democracy.
