Our eviction from Liberty Plaza on Nov 15th 2011 has only strengthened our resolve. The winter has passed and we are still on Wall Street. We are occupying the steps of Federal Hall. We have occupied the sidewalks of Wall Street and we promise to continue to challenge the unjust power of Wall Street. Join us this Friday April 27th and invite others.

The film explores the legacy of the 1969 takeover of City College for the current Occupy CUNY movement. This historical occupation was led by students of color and won open admissions.

The film is dedicated to freedom fighter Louis Reyes Rivera who passed away on March 3, 2012.

Rivera spoke to Students United for a Free CUNY at the AME Church in Harlem on October 27. His powerful words are inter cut with speeches by students from different universities (The New School, New York University and Hunter College) at Union Square as part of the Occupy Wall Street Day of Action on November 17, 2011.

At a stature of less than 5 feet, Rivera literally embodied with his loud, steady, luminous flow of prose-poetry that we, history’s little folks, could galvanize and transform any space we occupied.

Louis Reyes Rivera, known as “the janitor of history,” is the type of person who we often allow to fall through the cracks of recorded “official” history, but whose memory is passed on through the African oral tradition.
Hank Wiliams

Documentation is a behavior I learned from him. Archive is a survival instinct he tried to teach us all.

Greece is in the midst of a social rebellion with people at many different levels of society involved in strikes, occupations, riots, workplace slowdowns, self-reduction campaigns, and other forms of economic sabotage. Greece has become ground zero of the Eurozone’s fiscal crisis. The austerity measures promoted by the IMF/EU/ECB, otherwise known as the troika, are at the core of the social crisis in Greece. This short documentary looks at the crisis in Greece and social reactions to structural adjustment measures in October 2011.

Although Hosni Mubarak was forced to step down in February 2011, the uprisings in Egypt show little sign of retreat. While the uniting rallying cry may have been against dictatorship, the struggle in Egypt that took headlines across the world in early 2011 reflected deeper social, political, and economic problems.

The key demands of the revolution have still not been met. The continuation of military rule and the promise of more neoliberal economic policies lead many to believe it will be a long battle. Protestors in Egypt are hopeful, however, as people all over the world revolt against an economic system that benefits the few at the expense of the many.
