This webinar will discuss the Occupy Movement of 2011 from a firsthand perspective. It will look at its failure to achieve major goals: to abolish corporate-elite governance and restore democracy for the so-called “99 percent.” At least five factors will be identified as contributing to the movement’s decline: 1) Rugged Individualism, 2) Lack of Respect for/Faith in Leadership, 3) Sectarianism, 4) Internal Oppression, and 5) Lack of Training and Nonviolent Discipline. The concluding part of the webinar will consider the key lessons of Occupy for later movements, such as the Standing Rock campaign, and the Women’s March, as well as offer recommendations for the future large-scale progressive civil resistance in the United States.
