The Plight of Occupy Madison

Friday, 23 November 2012 | A Public Affair

On Friday November 23rd, Esty Dinur focused on the future of Occupy Madison for the first half of the program. She interviewed Four members of Occupy Madison: Ron, Betty, Dan and Brian who discussed their recent eviction.

According to their website, “Occupy Madison has gone through a number of evolutions and revolutions. We are in midst of writing an accurate update to the past few months, much from the initiative by Brenda Konkel, and much documentation can be found on her blog: http://www.forwardlookout.com. Currently the physical site is located at Token Creek Park. Donations stream in, despite the distance. Donations are being taken for the site and its residents through Occupy Wisconsin as well as drop offs to the site directly. Much gratitude for the support many of Madison’s citizens offer. Community building at its best.”

For the second half of the show, Esty interviewed Jason Louise Huberty & Rebecca Kemble discussing the state of the unconstitutional Capitol crackdown & the Solidarity Sing-Along.
