(Kilkenny 2011) Occupy and the importance of not asking for permission


Kilkenny, Allison. Occupy and the importance of not asking for permission [Internet]. In These Times. 2011 Dec 2.

Kilkenny responds to proposals that the Occupy movement should work within the electoral system via the Democratic Party. She contends that the system is so corrupt and beholden to corporate interests that any attempt to work entirely within it would inevitably result in co-optation of the movement, and neutralization of its effectiveness. Instead, she sees civil disobedience as indispensable.
