Description Transcript (19 pages) of an interview by Michael McClane with Seth Walker at Salt Lake City on 4 November 2011. Part of the Occupy Salt Lake City Oral History Project, Everett Cooley Collection tape no. U-3108
Abstract Seth Walker, a traveling poet and activist, traveled from Michigan to join the Occupy Salt Lake City movement and is currently part of the Federal Reserve front. Though he has spent a number of years on the road, Seth views Salt Lake City as a sort of home. He speaks to the diversity of tactics of the protesters and the consensus model practiced by Occupiers at the Fed. More importantly, Seth shares abstract philosophical commentary on his personal ideals and how they influence his current activism. The concrete political issues that concern him as a participant in the Occupy movement are corporate personhood and lobbying practices, which in his view indicate a moral decline in the American political and global economic systems. Project: Western History Association. Interviewer: Michael McClane.
