With the escalation of police tactics at many Occupations, some Occupiers argue for more active resistance. Chris Hedges and Kevin Zeese are questioned by DC Occupiers over future tactics at a seminar sponsored by a Ralph Nader group.

Whether or not you agree with Chris Hedges' stance on 'black bloc' tactics within the Occupy movement, he is spot on when he says that the goal of taking down occupy encampments across the country is to sever the movement from the mainstream because "The Occupy movement is fundamentally a mainstream movement."
And in short, the grievances and the concerns of the Occupy movement are the grievances and concerns of mainstream America.

It's a great nearly 20 full minutes of discussion, worth the listen.
