The Truth Out article, Arundhati Roy: “The People Who Created the Crisis Will Not Be the Ones That Come Up With a Solution” brings a perspective from India on our Occupy movement and the conditions it is trying to fight. She also talked about what is going on in India of which I was not fully aware.
The prize-winning author of The God of Small Things talks about why she is drawn to the Occupy movement and the need to reclaim language and meaning.
AG: At the same, occupying public spaces did capture the public imagination. Why do you think that is?
AR: I think you had a whole subcutaneous discontent that these movements suddenly began to epitomise. The Occupy movement found places where people who were feeling that anger could come and share it – and that is, as we all know, extremely important in any political movement. The Occupy sites became a way you could gauge the levels of anger and discontent.
