Four panelists mixed inside knowledge of Occupy Seattle with outside observation to explore the movement’s local and national implications Thursday night at a Crosscut forum. Some 75 people attended “Understanding Occupy Seattle,” held at the Bertha Knight Landes Room at Seattle City Hall, under the sponsorship of City Councilmember Mike O’Brien.
The panelists included independent journalist and Occupy Seattle Media Working Group member Mark Taylor-Canfield; Yes! Magazine Executive Editor Sarah van Gelder; Hanson Hosein, director of the UW Master of Communication in Digital Media program; and Crosscut contributing writer Jordan Royer. Crosscut Associate Editor Berit Anderson served as moderator.
