The “Songs of the OCCUPY Movement”

Presented by Hali Hamer and Bobbi Rabinowitz

This interactive workshop will present traditional and well-loved topical peace and protest songs, and original songs and parodies written by OCCUPY participants from around the country. Building on a well-attended “OCCUPY Songbook” workshop, presented last year by Bobbie Rabinowitz and Eliot Kenin at the Western Workers Labor Heritage Festival, each workshop participant will be given a copy of the OCCUPY Songbook, to be used in the workshop setting.

Workshop participants will share OCCUPY songs, either of their own creation or selected from the OCCUPY Songbook, and will leave the workshop armed with a new OCCUPY song repertoire to use in their own political, cultural and community work.
