I know, it’s a mouthful. Anti-authoritarian/Anti-Capitalist. So negative. But by setting up and organizing ourselves according to what we DON’T want to see, it helps us more easily find our positive affinities. This week, an anti-authoritarian (anti-party, anti-leader, autonomist) and anti-capitalist (anarchist, communist, others) caucus from within Occupy Asheville formed to discuss an effort to make our voices and concerns heard. This show is an interview with Martin about that caucus and his views on the importance of explicitly anti-political and anti-capitalist in making this Occupy Movement really by and for the people and heterogeneous. We also speak a bit on Brother Duane’s recent speech at a General Assembly on offering a treaty (signed on to by members of the Italian and French governments) legitimized by the Lakota Tribe as a First Nation allowing the protest to camp on Pack Square as being set upon a historic Cherokee trail head.
