The Present Is The Past: Occupying The Commons
By David Duckworth
Author, instructor and lecturer David Duckworth explores significant moments in American history when political redress employed the occupation of visible space. Marches of the unemployed, such as the Industrial Armies marching on Washington in 1894, and labor-oriented demands, such as the Ludlow, Colorado miners’ strike of 1914 and Bonus March of 1932, show us that the Occupy Movement of today draws from a long tradition of political protest. Duckworth’s writings on this theme can be found at http://dpduckworth.wordpress.com. His writings appear in Film and History and The International Review of African American Art. For recommended reading on July 30th, visit http://thegreenarcade.com.
