Camp Dismantled, But Occupy Nova Scotia Continues

HALIFAX—As has been happening at Occupy sites across North America, police moved in on Occupy Nova Scotia on October 11, seizing tents, supplies and protesters.

By the end of the day, 14 people had been arrested for peacefully trying to defend the site.

This video tracks the progress of Occupy Nova Scotia, from when it began on October 15, to its relocation out of respect for veterans on Remembrance Day, to the eviction, and beyond. The video also explores how day to day operations worked on the site, from consensus decision-making, to keeping safe, to feeding a hungry crowd.

Occupy Nova Scotia is currently not occupying a site in Halifax, but General Assemblies are continuing, and participants say the movement is far from over.

For more on the recent police actions against Occupy Nova Scotia, watch, Mini-Doc: The Eviction of Occupy Nova Scotia.

This video was produced by Glen Canning, a contributor to the Halifax Media Co-op. For more coverage of the Occupy movement across Canada and worldwide, visit http://mediacoop.ca/occupy.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
