An Interview With Glenn Greenwald: Why Is the Elite Class Protected Under America’s Justice System? Mark Karlin, Truthout: “Although your book, ‘With Liberty and Justice for Some: How the Law Is Used to Destroy Equality and Protect the Powerful,’ is primarily on the increasingly adverse climate for civil liberties at the federal level, needless to say, your title seems made to order for what is happening with Occupy Wall Street. Glenn Greenwald: Actually, what is happening with the Occupy Wall Street protests is as perfect an illustration of the book’s argument as anything I could have imagined. The book’s central theme is that law is no longer what it was intended to be – a set of rules equally binding everyone to ensure that outcome inequalities are at least legitimate – and instead has become the opposite: a tool used by the politically and financially powerful to entrench their own power and control the society. That’s how and why the law now destroys equality and protects the powerful”: here.
My Vision of the 99 Percent Street Protests: A Balanced Empowerment Society. William B. Daniels, Truthout: “The 99 percent protests are telling us that electoral politics are dead. They are telling us a coup is occurring in which deliberative democracy is being replaced by a factional dictatorship of the corporate rich. They are telling us the only honest choice is to take to the streets with signs that complain about the plight of the middle class, call for jobs and object to taxation unfairness. Media commentators are groping for some unifying ‘vision’ that animates the protests. Some say it is the American equivalent of the Arab Spring. Others call it an extension of the American labor movement. Still others claim it is the symptom of a class war. These attempts miss the mark”: here.
Oakland Police Use Rubber Bullets, Flash Grenades and Smoke Bombs to Evict Occupy Oakland. Zaid Jilani, ThinkProgress: “Late last night, Oakland police, under orders from the city, began surrounding the Occupy Oakland encampment in preparation to oust the protesters from Frank Ogawa Plaza. Approximately an hour ago, hundreds of Oakland police officers raided the camp. Dressed in riot gear, the police used rubber bullets, flash grenades, and gas canisters to forcibly evict and/or arrest the demonstrators who remained in the plaza. The Occupy Oakland Twitter account live-tweeted the raid”: here.
Occupy Writers: A Mirror of and a Stimulant for the Occupy Movement. J.A. Myerson, Truthout: “‘I love the Occupy Wall Street Library,’ Jeff Sharlet tells me. He is the best selling author of ‘The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power’ and someone who has spent a lot of time here at Liberty Plaza Park recently, observing the general assemblies, tweeting his thoughts and filing reports on the Wall Street occupation. ‘I’ve brought a lot of books there. I took a book, I like having it because it says, “Occupy Wall Street Library” on it.’ Sharlet is also the brain behind Occupy Writers a collection of authors, poets, playwrights, journalists, cartoonists, and others (anyone who self-identifies as a writer can get on the list) who have signed onto a simple statement: ‘We, the undersigned writers and all who will join us, support Occupy Wall Street and the Occupy Movement around the world'”: here.
Outside Cleveland, Snapshots of Poverty’s Surge in the Suburbs. Sabrina Tavernise, The New York Times News Service: “The poor population in America’s suburbs – long a symbol of a stable and prosperous American middle class – rose by more than half after 2000, forcing suburban communities across the country to re-evaluate their identities and how they serve their populations. The increase in the suburbs was 53 percent, compared with 26 percent in cities. The recession accelerated the pace: two-thirds of the new suburban poor were added from 2007 to 2010”: here.
