Occupy Wall Street crackdown


Queen’s University sociology professor emeritus Vincent Mosco is available to talk about the crackdown by city officials across North America against Occupy Wall Street protestors.

Dr. Mosco has written extensively on power, the media and social movements. He spent time at the protest site in New York City and feels civic officials should let protestors stay.

“In a democracy, the right to protest is paramount. The tough economic times of the past few years show that change is needed to the corporate world,” says Dr. Mosco, the author of The Political Economy of Communication (SAGE Publications, 2009).

Please note that Dr. Mosco is based in Ottawa.
