Occupy London

Dowling, Emma, Feigenbaum, Anna, Pell, Susan and Stanley, Katherine (2012) Occupy London. South Atlantic Quarterly, 111 (3) . pp. 608-615. ISSN 0038-2876 [Article] (doi:10.1215/00382876-1596326)


This essay brings together the authors’ experiences and observations with reflections gathered in an open workshop about Occupy London organized under the banner of the Tent City University working group. The essay posits Occupy London not as one entity but as an organizing process located in more than one area within the City of London. They see Occupy London as both a powerful idea and as a material practice. The authors reflect on the social composition, organizational politics, and infrastructure of Occupy London. They conclude that, aside from the challenges of collective organization and the desire to maintain visibility, one recurring concern within the Occupy London movement is how its embodied practices of struggle can emanate from centralized and often symbolic moments into the everyday realms of production and reproduction within society.
