Occupy Wall Street Day 10, The Resistance Continues At Liberty Square

By James Lane

What/Who is Occupy Wall Street?

Occupy Wall Street is a leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing they all have in common is that they share the mantra "We Are The 99%" that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%.

The original call for this occupation was published by Adbusters in July; since then, many individuals across the country have stepped up to organize this event, such as the people of the NYC General Assembly and US Day of Rage. There'll also be similar occupations in the near future such as October2011 in Freedom Plaza, Washington D.C.

Since the 17th of September, they've had thousands of supporters flood into lower Manhattan, set up beds, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street and appear to be committed to stay until our policies change.

Similar to recent activist movements in Egypt, Greece, Spain, and Iceland, they plan to use the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic of mass occupation to restore democracy in America. The use of nonviolence to achieve their ends and maximize the safety of all participants is strongly encourage despite what may have been recently reported by some corporate major media outlets.

This country was founded in protest and changes to it's history and policies were created by movements such as this. Progressives in this country hope to see this US occupation go on for as long it takes to bring social and economic justice to the people. Now This What Democracy Looks Like!
