That includes Chris Priest, who was instrumental in the founding of both Occupy Boston and Boston Uncut. "Literally every US Uncut organizer I know has been deeply involved with their local Occupy chapter since the beginning. That's no coincidence," says Priest. "Occupy Wall Street provided a priceless opportunity for every progressive organization to unite and fight on multiple fronts."
Priest sees US Uncut as merely one of many events that snowballed into Occupy. "US Uncut began in February 2011, and shouldn't be discounted as an influence for OWS. The same can be said about Wisconsin, Tunisia, Egypt, Spain, Libya, Syria, Bahrain and Yemen," he says.
