Organizer/Author
The Occupy Movement and The Green Party

Samsarah Morgan, an active Oakland Green, will lead our discussion. Samsarah has been involved with Occupy Oakland from its beginning, and played a key role in starting and maintaining the Children’s Village.

We will look at the Occupy Wall Street Movement especially in its Occupy Oakland form. We will discuss the effect of the Movement on national and local politics, particularly how Occupy has changed the political environment in which we work. We will also talk about how the Green Party can interact with the Occupy Movement by both learning from the movement and trying to influence it. Even though many OWS activists are resolutely opposed to electoral politics, is it possible over time to win some of them to our vision of an alternative electoral politics? How might we go about such a project?

LOCATION: Niebyl-Proctor Library, 6501 Telegraph Ave. at 65th in North Oakland.
