Love Stories

Can economic and social crisis be turned into a love story?  Or should activists in the U.S. be more deeply concerned with "taking power," for example, as activists in Europe and Latin America (among other places) have traditionally effected change? And versus, say, "processing feelings?"   

In the video below, Paul Jay talks with Brooklyn-based director Velcrow Ripper about this important subject, along with his now traveling film on the Occupy movement, Occupy Love.  (Find a copy or host a showing in your community by going here.)
