These are a few raw refl ections on Moscow’s Okkupai Abai protest as a direct democracy experiment, in relation to organizational process (practice) and to the Occupy movement. Although the specifi cs of the political visions of the two movements are rather different, they share a basic inclusivity (“if you feel powerless, join us”) and a focus on self-organization. In this context, I evaluate the translation of Occupy’s organizing tools (primarily the assemblies) into Okkupai and the dynamics of fragmentation and inclusion/exclusion to which they contribute. Finally, I refl ect on my own position as a partial participant observer with an activist history.
