Occupy Wall Street: Renewing American Democracy?


Last night, Stay Thirsty published a special report by Over 50 and Out of Work  on Occupy Wall Street:

On Thursday, October 13, Over 50 and Out of Work went to Zuccotti Park to interview protestors at Occupy Wall Street and to shoot footage of the nascent movement.

Occupiers, activists, drop-in protestors, hippies, commuters, passersby, tourists, construction workers, financial district employees, media, the police and the curious crowd Zuccotti Park and its surrounding sidewalks to participate in or pass through Occupy Wall Street. The small park has become a gathering place for speechmakers, debaters, mobilizers, hangers-on, drifters, artists, opportunists, pushcart vendors and performers.

It’s a remarkable scene and an amazing thing to see Americans exercising their rights to assemble and speak freely.

Great article. The people I am meeting at Occupy Raleigh mirror this diversity and the concerns mentioned. This is about have a more democratic economy. Adam Smith would not recognize the current system as what he had in mind. The corporate bosses, rich, politicians, etc. are the new aristocracy. We need to reduce their influence and spread the benefits so all participate. Shiva Steve Ordog
