The making of a debt resistors’ movement: From Occupy Wall Street to Strike Debt
The financial crisis in the US officially began in September 2008, but the first mass street response arose in September 2011 with the Occupy Wall Street movement. Since then Strike Debt, a debt resistors’ organization, emerged out of Occupy. George Caffentzis will discuss debt resistance as a working class project and the prospects of Strike Debt in the context of previous debt resistance movements.
George Caffentzis is a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Southern Maine.
