Anarchists, admirers, and loved ones gathered in Zuccotti Park Friday afternoon to honor leftist luminary David Graeber who passed away last month at the age of 59.
At times strange and boisterous, the memorial took on the air of an outdoor carnival and theater production, with participants donning costumes and singing anti-capitalist songs. The event was one of more than 220 simultaneous gatherings staged around the world and organized by those who knew Graeber.
From Northern Syria to New York, these events aimed to celebrate Graeber’s impish spirit, his theoretical approaches to organizing, and his contributions to anarchism, organizers said.
