“A Church Of Dissent”

Oct 9 2011 @ 11:33am

That's Matt Stoller's description of Occupy Wall Street:

What these people are doing is building, for lack of a better word, a church of dissent. It’s not a march, though marches are spinning off of the campground. It’s not even a protest, really. It is a group of people, gathered together, to create a public space seeking meaning in their culture. They are asserting, together, to each other and to themselves, “we matter”.

Janine Giordano Drake nods.
