Occupy the Courts: A Conversation with Lawrence Lessig and Chris Hedges
On January 20th, occupiers across the country rallied together in protest against the insidious influence of the corporations over the judiciary. Shortly before the rally in Foley Square, New York CIty, Lawrence Lessig and Chris Hedges met in front of Occupy TVNY's cameras to discuss their vision of change. Lawrence Lessig: “I have enormous respect for what you’ve done, but don’t stop with this symbol of corporations are not a person. Don’t stop until you have restored this democracy to a democracy that the classical republicans could respect.” Chris Hedges: “In every single avenue we have to fight back, however corrupt the courts are, and certainly on the streets. You’re an inspiration to me, you’re an inspiration to countless Americans, and I think ultimately because the truth is on our side.”
