Interview on Occupy Boston Legacy
Recently I was asked for my take-aways from the Occupy Boston movement, about which I have blogged several times; the Occupy site was just below my office window and I spent some lunchtimes talking with the tent people and taking an occasional march with them.
You can link to my interview here, or watch it below. After the passage of time since the tents came down, I summarize preliminarily what we have learned from Occupy Boston.
Those around Boston who miss the Occupy experience can still subway to Harvard Yard, where a tent enclave is visible through the iron gates. Alas, those gates are chained shut, and beefy security folk are checking University ID at the few open portals. Seemingly you need a Harvard education to get close enough to glimpse the bed-rolls; just what is happening in front of Harvard Hall remains a mystery to those of us without current University credentials.
