Feeling fed up watching Washington fight over tax breaks for the wealthiest 1 percent of the population while unemployment continues to plague the rest of the country? Sick of watching Wall Street tank the economy and walk away? You're not alone and this weekend, protestors took to the streets of lower Manhattan with a demand for change.
The protests in Manhattan are formed by a loose coalition of groups who say they've been inspired by the "Arab Spring" protests that have been rippling through the Middle East. Beginning on Saturday, protestors began to converge on lower Manhattan in protest of the corporate influence in American politics. It's not just a one-off protest event, either. Protestors are calling for people to pitch tents and set up barricades to occupy Wall Street for a few months. http://current.com/groups/news-blog/93456821_the-underreported-story-occupying-wall-street-for-democracy.htm
