What is community organizing and its difference from the Occupy movement, social work and Barack Obama campaign? An interview with a senior organizer to explore the world of grassroots community organizations in the United States.

From the "radical" approach of Saul Alinsky, to the major campaigns carried out with religious congregations, unions and local schools, to the new groups born in London, Berlin and Australia.

A model which seems to be more influential than traditional social movements and well equipped to adress the social consequences of the current economic crisis.
