"An essential and galvanizing on-the-ground account of how oxygen suddenly and miraculously flooded back into the American brain."—Jonathan Lethem

"[Occupying Wall Street] runs through OWS' beginnings and provides a fascinating look at how Zucotti Park functioned, the disagreements and difficulties in running the community, and contains first-hand accounts of some of its most dramatic moments. Part souvenir, part how-to guide, this is a remarkable and unique book."—The Huffington Post

For two months this fall, Zuccotti Park was the site of an extraordinary political action. Home to the hundreds of anti-capitalist protestors, the park became a communion of sharing and consensus in the heart of a citadel defined by greed and oligarchy.

In the early hours of Tuesday, November 15, the occupiers' camp was destroyed when police swept suddenly into the square. But if the occupation at Zuccotti was destroyed that night, the movement it spawned across America has only just begun.

Occupying Wall Street draws on extensive interviews with those who took part in the action to bring an inside-the-square history to life. In a vivid narrative, the key events of the occupation are described, and woven throughout are stories of daily life in the square focusing on how the kitchen, library, media center, clean-up, hospital, and General Assembly functioned, all in the words of the people who were there.

Writers for the 99% is a group of writers and researchers active in supporting Occupy Wall Street who came together to create this book.

Review:


"I'm awfully glad these writers were taking notes and recording this history as it happened OWS is one of the most important developments in this country in many a year, and we need to understand how it happened and where it might go. This volume goes a long way toward filling that need!" Bill McKibben

"An essential and galvanizing on-the-ground account of how oxygen suddenly and miraculously flooded back into the American brain." Jonathan Lethem

"The last thirty years belonged to Wall Street. If Occupy gets it right, the next thirty should belong to us. This indispensable book is the first chapter in the story about the long revolution to come." Andrew Ross

The emphasis will be on everyday details of the occupation a recreation of texture, in all its unfiltered smells and brain-bursting sounds.” The Daily Beast
