UMass Lowell Center for Public Opinion

Student Forum, Nov. 8, 2011

What is the Occupy movement? And what do protestors say will end the occupation in our cities?

UMass Lowell faculty and students discussed this national movement as well as the results of the UMass Lowell—Boston Herald poll at the Student Forum on Tues. Nov. 8, 2011 at UMass Lowell.

Speakers included two UMass Lowell student veterans who have participated in Occupy Boston; independent survey researcher Mike Mokrzycki, who oversaw the poll; and Jenifer Whitten-Woodring, an assistant professor of political science whose work focuses on protest, repression and media freedom. UMass Lowell Chancellor Marty Meehan moderated the discussion.
