The Puzzle of Occupation (Video)

Posted: Updated:

One day you haven't heard the word in years. The next, it's on the tip of everybody's tongue. Late last year, the word was Austerity. This year? Occupation.

What do the occupiers want? Why are they there? And what will happen next? You probably think I'm talking about Wall Street. I am, partly, but it's not just there that these questions apply. In this Op-Video, a new kind of animated video essay I'm making monthly for Newsweek/The Daily Beast, Newsweek's Middle East Editor and Paris Bureau Chief Christopher Dickey puts together the puzzle of occupation.
