Austin activism in 2011 saw an upsurge in activity throughout the year with the mantra of change in the air. With the revolutions in the Arab world acting as a spark, people lit the fire that was once at the heart of social change in America. Activists for human rights involved in a whole rage of issues joined forces to fight the system of injustice seen all across the United States and the world. With the start of the Occupy Wall St. movement in New York, solidarity actions sprung up all across the world with Austin joining the movement on Oct. 6th. Issues addressed in this 2011 review include: war, civil liberties, immigrant rights, workers rights, global revolution, the Palestinian liberation struggle, feminist critique of pornography and the occupy movement. This is a Austin Indymedia/ZGraphix co-production. Produced by the Austin Indymedia Team.
