  • Occupy Wall Street


    Cries for social and economic justice reverberated between skyscrapers in New York City on Wednesday afternoon as thousands marched from Foley Square to Wall Street.

    Two weeks ago, a small group of activists began a 24-hour occupation of Fulton Park in the financial district to air their frustration with the American political system and turn their declaration, "We Are The 99%," into a rallying cry for action.

    The demonstration united disparate union groups, students and citizens all concerned with the job market, pensions for workers and an insecure financial future for young and old americans. Among the tarp-covered air mattresses strewn across Fulton Park a makeshift "People's Library," a temporary kitchen and scattered politically-charged signs are the individuals who are leading the movement—one replicated all over the country.
