19 October 201126 March 2012 Main Posts Dispatch from our intern Roselina Press Over the weekend, the #occupyeverywhere movement arrived in Australia. Protests took place in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Darwin, Adelaide and elsewhere around the country. Globally, this movement has grown fast. On 15 October demonstrations were planned in 951 cities in 82 countries. Though demands have varied – some are protesting against austerity measures in Europe, others against Japanese nuclear power – everyone seems to be uniting under a shared goal: to seek greater economic and social equality for the world’s bottom 99 percent. Here are a few other interesting links I found lately: Naomi Klein gives an interview from Occupy Wall Street, and there’s some really fantastic protest footage. We are the 99 Percent and We Stand with the 99 Percent tumblrs – moving photo projects. As far as I know, there isn’t something similar for Australia. Nicholas Kristof explains, ‘According to the C.I.A’s own ranking of countries by income inequality, the United States is a more unequal society than either Tunisia or Egypt’. A great article on Cyber activism, over at The Nation. Guernica magazine has an interview with prominent Iranian poet, Simin Behbahāni. The TV adaptation of Christos Tsiolkas’ The Slap has begun on ABC. Read a great review of the premiere episode by Bethanie Blanchard, over at the Kill Your Darlings blog. Robert Manne has written a post on the ‘Bolt technique’. This was published a few weeks ago, but I just recently stumbled upon a four-part interview with iconic Palestinian revolutionary, Leila Khaled. In it, Khaled narrates her life of activism, and it is a fascinating reflection on resistance and revolution. And speaking of revolution, The Onion has this very enlightening report on the Occupy Wall Street movement.
