Max Rameau, the leader of the "Take Back the Land" movement talk at the NYC graduate center on the evening of Tuesday, November 8th.  Max compares OWS to his movement of "Take Back the Land" as one is occupation, while the other is a liberation movement.  It is a very informative talk.
Max Rameau is a Pan-African theorist, campaign strategist, organizer and author.
Max moved from Washington, DC to Miami, FL in 1991. in the summer of 2006 as the devastating impacts of gentrification took root, Max helped found the organization which eventually became known as Take Back the Land. In October 2006, they seized control of a vacant lot in Miami and built the Umoja Village, a full urban shantytown, addressing the issues of land, self-determination and homelessness in the Black community. His book Take Back the Land, details the experiences and political theory behind the Umoja Village. He currently does support work to Take Back the Land’s local action groups and other organizations that are building a national movement for economic and racial justice.
