Occupy and Take Action

Cornel West and Frances Fox Piven discuss the Occupy movement. It is a very hopeful moment, because people are coming together to raise awareness and challenge deep injustices in this society. Young and old can learn from each other. Recorded March 18, 2012 at Left Forum.

Poverty in America - 50 Years Later

Frances Fox Piven and Cornel West remember Michael Harrington and the stir that his book The Other America caused. It led to progress in reducing poverty, but now, with the resurgence of the 1%, poverty is back worse than ever. But people are starting to resist. Recorded March 18, 2012 at Left Forum.
