Join Stephen Collis for a lecture and discussion based on his new book, Dispatches from the Occupation, published by Talon Books.
"Dispatches from the Occupation is a meditation on the Occupy movement and its place in the history of recent social movements. Strategies, tactics and the experiments with participatory democracy and direct action are carefully parsed and explained. How a movement for social, economic and political change emerges, and how it might be sustained, are at the heart of this exploration.
"The book also contains a series of dispatches from the day-to-day unfolding of the occupation in Vancouver's city centre as the author witnessed it – and participated in it – first hand: short manifestos, theoretical musings and utopian proposals.
Finally, the book is a preliminary investigation of what change is, and how it might be facilitated."
