We begin this episode by discussing the one year anniversary protests by Occupy Wall Street and the police brutality and arbitrary arrests at this event. We also look at some of the achievements of the Occupy movement by discussing the website whatthefuckhasoccupydone.com. There is an interview with artist and activist Carl Scrase, who gives updates on Occupy Melbourne, as well as discussing the #Global Noise event for the Occupy one year anniversary, Real Democracy Australia and the future of the Occupy movement. There is also an update on the new asylum seeker camp on Nauru introduced by the Australian government, a discussion on the project Visibilityfiction.com for teen writers that promotes inclusive young adult fiction, Occupy and animal rights, and puppy slaughter in Australia. We also have a return of the segment ‘What you HAVEN’T learnt from the media this week’.
Check out your local Occupy (and other Occupy’s!) for lots of alternative media, but here are a couple of Australian Occupy-related forms of alternative media: The Occupied Sydney Morning Herald and Avenue magazine.
