It also includes articles I wrote at the time in the movement when things were fresh in my mind. There are less pages since the book is big, but there are 16 chapters. I was practically on every occupy camp in the east coast, starting in New England through my days of homelessness, where I met intellectuals like Chomsky and Norman Finkelstein, both of whom I later interviewed. Also a man who would later turn into a national hero at the Boston Bombings, Carlos Arredondo, I had the honor of meeting. Occupy started as a movement to fight Wall Street corruption but expanded into a multi-cause front. Internal disputes, infiltration, and other factors, caused the movements demise, this book is written by a controversial figure who is finally telling his side. Described as a modern Grapes of Wrath book, this is my humble attempt to tell the truth. Solidarity Forever was a song I sang with my comrades the two times I was arrested, there are different versions of the song, I put a question mark as it seems there is a lack of solidarity in what remains of the movement, that is why my title starts that way, and this is a attempt to show what really happened as no one else has dared written from my first edition.
