The Occupy movement has vividly drawn attention to the interests of the 99% against the 1% of fabulously rich people around the world. However, Occupy is best understood not as an extraordinary eruption but as the latest expression of three decades of opposition to increasing inequality caused by neo-liberal globalisation. Its antecedents include structural adjustment riots, antimarketisation campaigns, global justice protests and anti-austerity mobilisations.
