Occupy Strategy - Interview with Michael Albert

Occupy Strategy - Interview with Michael Albert

In this interview one year into the Occupy movement I discuss with Michael Albert issues around organising for a better society, strategy, people and politics.

Michael Albert is an American activist, economist, speaker, and writer.
During the 1960s, he was a member of Students for a Democratic Society, and was active in the anti-Vietnam War movement. He is co-editor of ZNet, and co-editor and co-founder of Z Magazine. He also co-founded South End Press and has written numerous books and articles.
