Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

An Occupy Wall Street architect reflects of the failures of protest and the future of revolution.


A great tactic only works once. And one of the lessons for contemporary activists is that we always need to protest in different ways. We should never protest in the same way twice. And the same thing with occupying.

Occupy Wall Street co-founder Micah White looks back to the Occupy movement's roots in Tahrir Square and the Indignados movement, explains why our current generation of protest movements have failed to produce widespread, lasting social change, and looks to the future of democracy, where social movements and political parties span the globe.

Micah’s book The End of Protest: A New Playbook for Revolution will be released in Spring 2016.
