What do we talk about when we talk about Occupy Wall Street? What has it done—and what it is doing now? With these questions in mind, the Occupy! Gazette sprang out of the first weeks of the Wall Street Occupation to present an early analysis of the movement’s development and is, as explained on the publication’s Kickstarter page: “an attempt to begin to think through what is happening, written by people both on the ground and across the river.” Occupy! Gazette founders will discuss their inspiration for the publication and the challenges of writing about Occupy Wall Street as it unfolds, considering both the movement in its current form and its potential.
