floor, Boston, MA 02111)
featuring: Sarah Francis, Jeff Juris, Suren Moodliar, Thomas
Ponniah, Monica Poole, and (chair) Heike Schotten
The Arab Spring signaled a global wave of social movements challenging
inequality, repression, austerity, war, & corporate power. Whatever their
strengths, these movements have all had to give serious consideration to
how they relate to electoral politics. This timely conversation brings
together a diverse group of thoughtful activists and engaged scholars who
have connections to the #Occupy movement, the World Social Forum,
solidarity movements and grassroots organizing.
