“He’s had four years and proved himself to be a Wall Street President!”
by SHOZAB RAZA and PARMBIR GILL
This interview with Dr. Cornel West was conducted following the Oxford Union Debate on November 22nd 2012.
SR: Why are you here speaking in favour of the Occupy Wall Street movement?
CW: The Occupy movement being the major public response to a 30 year class war against poor and working people, not just in the American Empire but around the world, that to have this space – this space has of course been consecrated by the Malcolm X’s of the world, the Desmond Tutus, and so many others who have come through here – it has a certain visibility, an international form, and so I figured it would be right.
