[VIDEO] Occupy Tactics: Violence and Legitimacy in the Occupy Movement and Beyond

Last Wednesday, the CUNY Graduate Center hosted a debate between author and journalist Chris Hedges and B. Traven of CrimethInc. Ex-Workers Collective on violence and “diversity of tactics” in Occupy and other social movements. The debate, moderated by CUNY sociology professor Sujatha Fernandes, was introduced by Dissent associate editor Sarah Leonard with a brief history of the black bloc and some doubts about a discussion narrowly focused on tactics.
