Book Tour by Mark Bray, an Occupy Wall Street organizer, Sat Sept 28, 3:30

MarkBray_TranslatingAnarchyMark_BraySaturday, September 28 at 3:30 pm. Come to the book tour event for Translating Anarchy: The Anarchism of Occupy Wall Street by Mark Bray. Translating Anarchy tells the story of the anti-capitalist anti-authoritarians of Occupy Wall Street who strategically communicated their revolutionary politics to the public in a way that was both accessible and revolutionary.
OWS organizer Mark Bray combines his direct experience in the movement with nearly 200 interviews with the most active, influential architects of Occupy Wall Street, to reveal the revolutionary anarchist core of Occupy. Although The New York Times and CNN thought that OWS simply wanted tighter financial regulations and a millionaire’s tax, Bray shows that the vast majority of organizers called for the abolition of capitalism altogether.  By “translating” their ideas into everyday concepts like community empowerment and collective needs, these anarchists sparked the most dynamic American social movement in decades.
