Occupy Oakland

Occupy Oakland (2011, HD)

The ongoing video series is part of a commitment to political activism and community participation.  The documentation helps present a movement structured around alternative forms of democratic participation.  The concept of the General Assembly within the Occupy movement is an inclusive consensus-building model of participation that has become a statement against the failed and corrupt representative republic of the US government.  Because of its inclusivity as well as its critique against government corruption and unrestricted global capitalism, the Occupy groups have come under increasing media attacks and governmental crackdowns.
