On the 10th anniversary of Occupy Wall Street, we study the legacy of the historic protests with three veterans of the motion: Nelini Stamp, now the director of technique and partnerships on the Working Families Party; Jillian Johnson, a key organizer in Occupy Durham who now serves on the Durham City Council and is the town’s mayor professional tempore; and author and filmmaker Astra Tayor, an organizer with the Debt Collective.
Occupy Wall Street “broke the spell” defending the financial established order and marked a significant shift in protests in opposition to capitalism, Taylor says. “Occupy kind of inaugurated this social movement renaissance,” she tells Democracy Now! “We’ve been in an age of defiant protest ever since Occupy Wall Street.”
