Video: Occupy Economics: Class Conflict and the Occupy Movement

March 4, 2012 in Video


Produced by ZGGary and Occupy Now TV.

Chad Kautzer, of the Occupy Denver Education Committee and Foreclosure Working Group, gives an introductory teach-in on economic class and class conflict in the context of the Occupy movement. Why do we need an analysis of class? Is the Occupy claim to be the 99% a claim about class? Are the 1% and the 99% inherently at odds with each other? What is the role of the state and the police in class conflict?
