Occupy revient, un peu de résistance.
Et l’excellent Ian Cook, prof de géographie à Exeter nous envoie ce merveilleux message sur la liste de géo radicale. C’est très très très long, si on veut tout lire et tout regarder, mais de ce que j’en ai vu, ça vaut le détour (trois étoiles au Michelin pas moins).
Follow the Things | Security | Have I Got News For You (tent)
To coincide more or less with the 1 year anniversary of the beginning of Occupy LSX, we have just published on our site a debate about ’anti-capitalist’, consumption and protest that began with UK Conservative MP Louise Mensch arguing on a satirical TV panel show that people couldn’t be ’anti-capitalists’ because they were drinking Starbucks coffee, tweeting on their iPhones, and living in ’fancy tents’ outside St Paul’s cathedral in London.
We have located the YouTube clip and collated the online discussions that this provoked and, we think, have produced something that could work as a powerful teaching resource.
Description du contenu de l’emission
Conservative MP Louise Mensch discovered that OccupyLSX protestors drink coffee and use mobile phones and brought this insightful view to BBC’s Have I Got News For You. Ian Hislop, Danny Baker, and Paul Merton were not in agreement with her (Source: Atwater 2011 link).
Four men with sharpest minds – or rather tongues – in England ganged up and tore to pieces a woman Conservative [a.k.a Tory] MP, Louise Mensch, who suggested in a popular satirical programme ’Have I Got News for You’ that ’occupy’ protesters at the City of London were not steadfast enough in their anti-capitalist action because they a: formed the longest queue in the world for Starbucks coffee; b: had fancy tents; c: used iPhones to tweet about the protest. ‘’You don’t need to return to a barter and a Stone Age to complain about the cuts and the financial crisis?’, said Ian Hislop, the feared editor of satirical magazine ’Private Eye’. ’If you buy coffee, have a tent and use iPhone your opinion is worthless?’ said comedian Paul Merton (Source: Anon 2011 np link).
