Buffy Lo & Mr. Jay talk about disagreements within the Occupy Buffalo movement. Occupy Western New York and Occupy Delaware Park are two new factions that are rumored to have branched off from the original Niagara Square occupation. What does this mean? Is this a good thing, that more people are becoming empowered and starting their own occupies?

Do we need to learn to get along better in our society? Is the Occupy movement influenced by the same competitive politics that dominates our corporate-controlled society? How do we learn to not operate dog-eat-dog, to cooperate, live and work together again?

Some women feel disenfranchised within the occupy movement. Is this valid? Reading about the antiwar movement of the 1960s reveals a similar trend that led to the women's movement and the eventual decline of the 60s progressive movement that increasingly became sectarian and dominated by "relatively privileged people...fighting on behalf of the oppressed..." (according to Todd Gitlin's book, "Sixites: Years of Hope, Days of Rage.")

Is the Occupy movement repeating history? Will it/can it outlast the inner conflicts, police and government harassment? Can such a diverse group of people put aside their differences long enough to unite and rally against this corporate-controlled, elitist structure that has become our society? We certainly hope so.
Hostess: Buffy Lo,

Can we be the peace and social justice we seek in the world or has corporate culture created an inescapable dog-eat-dog society?
