K'jipuktuk (Halifax) - Max Haiven is back from the Big Apple, and he's brought with him a first-hand account of the Occupy movement's continued importance to our social fabric. From disaster relief efforts that outpaced the bureaucratic stumblings of FEMA and the Red Cross in the face of Hurricane Sandy, to the ingenious debt-relief efforts of initiatives such as 'Rolling Jubilee', despite the lack of a physical encampment, the Occupy movement has proven itself invaluable as a functioning alternative to raw capitalism.

For all the skeptics who thought that Occupy was dead, and all the Occupiers who've known better the whole time, the Halifax Media Co-op, along with Solidarity Halifax, is pleased to co-sponsor Max Haiven's presentation, which takes place this Tuesday, November 27th, at 6:30pm. Please see below for details, and please enjoy the following interview with Max Haiven.
