Robert Ogman's new essay on Occupy


This month Luxemburg. Gesellschaftsanalyse und linke Praxis published a new essay by Against the Nation author Robert Ogman titled "The U.S. Occupy Movement in the Crisis of Neoliberal Hegemony: A Study of Frontline Struggles Since the Eviction of the Squares." In the author's own words: "This text analyzes the U.S. Occupy movement as a particular societal response to the crisis of neoliberal hegemony, and as the initial stirrings of a counter-hegemonic project. Here, the movement is situated within the context of a blocked transformation, in which the finance-dominated accumulation regime, despite falling into a deep structural crisis, nonetheless remains dominant. Instead of a postneoliberal transformation, we are experiencing a resurgent neoliberalism." Read the essay here!
