Documentary for Dinner: Occupy Tactics – Violence and Legitimacy in the Occupy Movement and Beyond (2012)

A Debate between Chris Hedges and the CrimethInc. Ex-Workers Collective on Tactics & Strategy, Reform & Revolution.

Admittedly, I had made up my mind going into this debate having seen first hand the blowback generated by the so-called “black bloc” at the G20 protest in my own city of Toronto. Their actions turned a lot of the sensible public against the greater whole of protestors, even putting a bad taste in my own mouth about a protest I would otherwise be fully behind. During and since the G20 we have seen a ramping up of American-style crowd management across Canada, backed by a justification vividly illustrated by the burning cruisers – a PR stunt even many mainstream Canadian news organizations believe was perpetrated by the police and swallowed hook, line and sinker by the bloc.
