This is the second half of the transcript of my interview with
Marina Sitrin, recorded April 25, 2012.
Marina Sitrin is the author of Horizontalism: Voices of
Popular Power in Argentina and it seemed like all the time
when I was at the different Occupy Wall Street locales, the idea of
horizontalism came at me, and almost always it was Marina Sitrin as
the editor of this book whose name came associated with it. So,
welcome to the show, Marina! Now, let me give a little bit
more of a bio that I've collected on you. Marina Sitrin is a
writer, lawyer, teacher, organizer and dreamer. She holds a Ph.D.
in global sociology, and a J.D., that's a legal degree, in
international Women's human rights. Her work focuses on social
movements and justice, specifically looking at new forms of social
organization, such as autogestion, horizontalidad, pre-figurative
politics and new effective social relationships.
Part one of the interview is here.
Rob: Now, let's talk about those
banging pots and pans. What's the word that is used for that
Marina: Cacerola, a Cacerola is
like a big pot. Yeah, so the Cacerolazo is the banging of pots and
Rob: C-a-c-e-r-o-l-a, cacerola,
Rob: And this is something that
hundreds of thousands of people went out into the streets and did,
Marina: Right, and regular
people. So many people described this to me. People went out in
flip flops. People went out in pajama tops. It was everybody. This
was not some kind of activist scene at all. This was just
everybody, your neighbor. Well, when millions of people go out in
the street, it's a whole other thing.
Rob: Now. I have to say that
OpEdnews, the site I publish, probably has published over a
thousand articles on Occupy at this point, and I had one reader who
would write to me every couple days and say, "Don't forget to talk
about banging the pots and pans."
