For ongoing coverage of the Occupy movement, see our web series Occupy Onwards.
Published on September 17, one year after the start of the Occupy Movement, the fifth Occupy! Gazette looks back at the last year and at recent developments. Articles cover rent strikes, activism in Germany, Greece, and Quebec, how to document police violence, and the Strike Debt movement.
Published on May 1, the fourth Occupy! Gazette follows occupations that stuck out the winter and looks forward to spring actions. Articles cover the SF Commune and Bronx foreclosure defense, consider Occupy and money, propose occupying shareholders meetings, and more.
Published on December 15, the third Occupy! Gazette came out just after the Zuccotti Park eviction. It describes and re-imagines the movement after the end of the occupations and looks to the archives for models. Articles follow student activism from CUNY to Berkeley, cover the Oakland port shutdown, consider the legacies of ACT-UP and the Greenham Common occupation—and more.
Published on November 14, at the beginning of the national wave of evictions, the second Occupy! Gazette completes our history of the first phase of the movement. Articles document the Oakland raid and general strike, emergence of the spokes council, and last days of the Zuccotti Park occupation, address questions related to homelessness and police relations, and more.
Published on October 21, the first Occupy! Gazette gives a history, both personal and documentary, and the beginnings of an analysis of the first month of the occupations. Articles address the history of horizontalism, early conflicts with the police, the beginnings of the occupations in New York, Oakland, Philadelphia, and more.
