Though categorically inferior in scope and perspicuity of expression to its Spanish predecessor, these protests (organized by a farrago of movements and groups in common intention) nonetheless indicate a healthy and widespread critique for rightly reviled transnational corporations, financial institutions and the Keynesian proto-fascism that they've fostered: as much a bane to social justice as to any healthy incarnation of market economics. Too little focus has been directed to the egregious machinations of the Federal Reserve, but this is still a pleasant reminder that - despite a few snags and stupid missteps - some loud and honest dissent is alive and well in a nation where it ought be far more prominent.

I agree! At this juncture, there's as little reason to conform to this country's socioeconomic system as to violently oppose it.

The Return of The Order of The Phoenix
Trust is what built relationships and relationship is what established corporations. When trust is being manipulated or misplaced by one party of the equation, the whole foundation collapses. That's what the global banking system and governments are "enforcing" on the majority of the world population now. Herein lies the uprising of the worldwide Occupy Wall Street movement.        I was there as an observer (albeit bystander) on Saturday, …

Dealing Forthrightly With Inequities
The Occupation of Wall Street, Zuccotti Park and burgeoning movements across the USA and abroad have a singular aim, which is to achieve a more equitable distribution of wealth to the lower and middle classes. More than a half million dollars in cash, clothing, food and other donations have come to the protesters in Lower Manhattan. Even some elected officials have come to the aid of the protesters. Sub-groups of protesters have emerged all over the United States.      When the …

About this topic


Occupy Wall Street is an ongoing series of demonstrations in New York City based in Zuccotti Park, formerly "Liberty Plaza Park". The protest was originally called for by the Canadian activist group Adbusters; it took inspiration from the Arab Spring movement (particularly the Tahrir Square protests in Cairo, which initiated the 2011 Egyptian Revolution) and from the Spanish Indignants.

The participants of the event are mainly protesting against social and economic inequality, corporate greed, and the influence of corporate money and lobbyists on government, among other concerns. Adbusters states that, "Beginning from one simple demand – a presidential commission to separate money from politics – we start setting the agenda for a new America." The protest's organizers hope that the protesters themselves will formulate their own specific demands, expecting them to be focused on "taking to task the people who perpetrated the economic meltdown."

By October 6, similar demonstrations had been held in Washington, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Miami, Portland, Maine, Jersey City, Trenton, Portland, Oregon, Seattle, and Denver.
