NEW YORK (Frameshop) – WYNC leads, this morning, with an interesting post about Occupy Wall Street (OWS) by reporter Kathleen Horan. The article is valuable because it offers a description of the signature anarchist organizing techniques at work in OWS. Curiously, terms like direct action, horizontalism, leaderless structure, block, are presented without once using the word “anarchist” by way of establishing a broader context for the reader. Nonetheless, the article is well worth reading and suggests, by virtue of having been written, that a small part of the mainstream media has shifted from casting aspersions on OWS in order to lay down a baseline description. Besides a bunch of people discussing direct actions without a leader, what is “horizontal” organizing and why is it so important for OWS?
