Occupy Wall Street Teach-Ins

Occupy Wall Street Teach-Ins
Teach-ins were a powerful instrument mobilizing students against the Vietnam War. The first probably took place at the University of Michigan in 1965, followed by one in at UC-Berkeley, and then at schools across the nation. Teach-ins instructed and mobilized. They turned inchoate rage against the war into a movement to bring it to an end. Would a set of Occupy Wall... Street teach-ins at universities and colleges across the country do the same thing to relative to corporate greed and political corruption that poses a greater threat to this country than communist insurgents in Vietnam ever did? We will never know unless we try. As a great fighter for justice once said, “Don’t mourn, organize.”
