Event Details

David Harvey and David Graeber at CUNY on April 25th

Long before the Occupy movement, modern cities have been both the central sites of capital accumulation and revolutionary politics, where deeper currents of social and political change rise to the surface. Struggles over who controls access to resources and space become struggles over who dictates the quality and organization of daily life--is it the financiers and developers, or the people?

In 2011, these struggles erupted worldwide, from the Middle East to Greece and Spain; from Italy and London to Chile; and of course, throughout the United States. David Harvey and David Graeber, the theorists of the Right to the City and of Occupy, will discuss their travels to different worldwide revolts in this past year, as well as strategies and tactics for transforming radical action into an urban revolution. In 2011, the streets of urban America became a site of anti-capitalist resistance; in 2012, how can this resistance grow?
