Join George Caffentzis for a free public lecture titled The making of a debt resistors' movement: From Occupy Wall Street to Strike
The financial crisis in the US officially began in September 2008, but the
first mass street response arose in September 2011 with the Occupy Wall
Street movement. Since then Strike Debt, a debt resistors' organization,
emerged out of Occupy. George Caffentzis will discuss debt resistance as a
working class project and the prospects of Strike Debt in the context of
previous debt resistance movements.
This event is organised in collaboration with the Centre for Cultural
