In this, the very first episode of Progressive Podcast Australia, we look at the Occupy movement in Australia and beyond. Firstly, we respond to criticisms of the Occupy movement from right-wing journalist Andrew Bolt and others. We mention the United Nations report that pointed out that the richest 1% of adults alone own 40% of global assets and we also talk about inequality within Australia. Other issues we cover in the podcast include neoliberalism and inequality, people making fun of the protests online, anarchist-type communities at the Occupy’s, unity and diversity in the Occupy movement, the acknowledgement of other animals as victims of corporate greed, and direct action against the big corporate banks.
