My colleague at Wired.com Jakob Schiller
wrote about Occupied Spaces
in November with his piece Pianos, Kitchens and Offices: Inside London’s Occupy Tents
. It’s good to see this work progress into a book format.
“On 15 October 2011, protestors representing the global Occupy movement set up a semi-permanent camp outside St. Paul’s Cathedral
in central London. The aim of the protest was to encourage discourse and raise awareness of social and economic inequalities.”
“On 25 October, several UK
newspapers and media outlets ran stories claiming that ‘thermal imaging
’ proved that only 10% of the 250 tents
in St. Paul’s Square
were being inhabited overnight. I was immediately skeptical of these claims.”
