_ May 17, 2011 The Spanish Indignados movement began a year ago and is said to be the forerunner to the Occupy movement that began in New York last September. Since then we have seen the Occupy movement spread across the world, from Armenia to Mexico to Malaysia to Australia. Some occupations have closed down and some continue on. Protestors have faced harsh treatment by police, the media and the general public. So what is the occupy movement, and a year on, what future does it have? Professor John Keane is a renowned democracy critic and Founder of Centre for Democracy in London and now heads up the Sydney Democracy Initiative at the University of Sydney, and spoke to Fiona Poole.
