Occupy Radio: Chuck Collins and the Billionaire Bonanza 12/2/2015 0 Comments   Occupy Radio: Chuck Collins and the Billionaire Bonanza The seeds of the Occupy movement were sown when Wall Street crashed the economy, and then got bailed out. That was the climax of a concentrated forty-year-long campaign to gut the middle class, and transfer the wealth of America into the hands of the wealthiest one tenth of one percent. Seven years after decimating the American economy, it looks like the...

Occupy Radio: Occupy Today, with Arun Gupta, and Michael Gould-Wartofsky Four years out from Zuccotti Park, what are the chances for an Occupy 2.0? Bernie Sanders appears to be carrying the Occupy torch with his dark-horse candidacy heavy with anti-Wall Street rhetoric. Bernie’s enthusiastic crowds seem to indicate that hostility for the financial titans is still fertile ground for organizing. But with Black Lives Matter leading the charge today, can a resurgent popular uprising limit itself...

The people of the United States are beginning to question the sanctity of our vote. In the next presidential election, nearly a third of the population will cast votes that leave no sort of public record.

Big news this week, Occupiers. Since Occupy Radio first aired nearly four years ago, we’ve focused on the corrupting influence of money on our government, and our communities. We’ve tracked the battles against the Keystone pipeline, and the Trans Pacific Partnership. We’ve cheered the rise of Idle No More, and Black Lives Matter. We’ve charted the erosion of our civil liberties, as the American government veered sharply away from the needs of the people, toward the demands of corporate...

The 1983 Supreme Court ruling in Beardon v Georgia made it clear that courts could not revoke probation for those who justifiably could not afford to pay their fines. Over the last two decades a mulit-million dollar industry has grown up in direct defiance of the Beardon ruling.
