Occupy Wall Street
Occupy Wall Street made the world aware of Wall Street’s nearly-obscene inequities. But, unfortunately, that has been about it. How much has really changed because of the 12-month-old movement?
A new report released Friday says that the city’s response to last year’s Occupy Los Angeles protests and the two-month encampment at City Hall cost more than double the original estimate.
About 5,000 Occupy demonstrators marched along the Rose Parade route Monday as part of their ongoing effort to effect governmental change.
The occupy movement began a new campaign Tuesday called “Occupy Our Homes” in an effort to retake properties that have been foreclosed on by mortgage holders.
More than 100 “Occupy LA” protesters marched from City Hall to Nokia Theater and back Tuesday morning to show their support for “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrators who were raided by police in New York.
Police were bracing for more than 500 protesters but an Occupy Van Nuys event attracted about 30 people.
After the city of Oakland tried to force Occupy Oakland protesters off city property, rioting broke out. Dozens were hurt, including an Iraq war veteran who is now in critical condition.
The “Occupy Wall Street” movement is now global with protests popping up in cities across the country and around the world, including here in the Southland.
The Occupy Wall Street movement is global with protests taking place coast-to-coast.
