It’s good to see that our animated-liveaction “Occupation” video about Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel, Palestine, Occupy Wall Street and the Confederacy (all in three minutes) is now up on YouTube as well as TheDailyBeast.com.
In the latest installment of the Daily Beast Video ‘Op-Vid: Campaign 2012’ video series, Christopher Dickey explores the concept of ‘Occupation.’ It is a word spoken—and unspoken—that’s at the center of the issues in Iraq, Afghanistan, the Middle East and, yes, Wall Street. But what does it really mean? And what is its historical significance?
(Facebook and Twitter followers, note that one of the links sent earlier did not always play the video. This one should do fine. Please feel free to comment here or, better yet, on the Daily Beast site. Some of the posts are churlish and stupid, but there’s the start of an interesting discussion there: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2011/11/30/christopher-dickey-the-real-meaning-of-occupation-video.html#comments )
