Open Letter From Arun Gupta on the Wall Street Occupation: The Revolution Begins at Home

An introduction from Naomi: "Please take a look at this thoughtful essay by my friend Arun Gupta, editor of The Indypendent. If I were in New York (I'm based in British Columbia, Canada at the moment), I would certainly be spending time at the Wall Street occupation, and I urge those of you who do live in the area to go in person to Liberty Park and check it out. Keep in mind that any attempt to create a genuinely open space to share political ideas is necessarily going to be chaotic and at times embarrassing. But Gupta's point is a crucial one. This is not the time to be looking for ways to dismiss a nascent movement against the power of capital, but to do the opposite: to find ways to embrace it, support it and help it grow into its enormous potential. With so much at stake, cynicism is a luxury we simply cannot afford." --Naomi

Daylight Robbery, Meet Nighttime Robbery

Published in The Nation.

I keep hearing comparisons between the London riots and riots in other European cities—window smashing in Athens, or car bonfires in Paris. And there are parallels, to be sure: a spark set by police violence, a generation that feels forgotten.

But those events were marked by mass destruction; the looting was minor. There have, however, been other mass lootings in recent years, and perhaps we should talk about them too. There was Baghdad in the aftermath of the US invasion—a frenzy of arson and looting that emptied libraries and museums. The factories got hit too. In 2004 I visited one that used to make refrigerators. Its workers had stripped it of everything valuable, then torched it so thoroughly that the warehouse was a sculpture of buckled sheet metal.
