#OccupyBooks

When police raided Liberty Park in the wee hours of November 15th, what occupiers cared most about, in addition to free speech rights violation, press censorship and police brutality, was the removal of their library, which contained 5,000 donated titles. What does this say about this movement of ideas?

Here is a video of the return to Liberty Park just in the early evening of November 15th, including an interview with the #OccupyWallStreet librarian.

Ideas memes from #OccupyWallStreet that continue to resonate:

“We Are the 99%”
“OccupyEverywhere”
and this week:
“You Can’t Evict an Idea Whose Time Has Come”
“This is What Democracy Looks Like”
