What Do You Think About The Occupy Wall Street Movement?

6 years ago

For months, the Occupy Wall Street movement has been a top news story.  It started in New York City's Zuccotti Park with a few tents and a human megaphone technique that soon had hundreds of protesters repeating lines from speeches so all could hear.  This invention became an Occupy trademark, and it was created because electronic amplification devices (microphones, megaphones) were banned by the authorities.

Soon the Occupy movement spread across the country, and similar protest gatherings began to occur in cities large and small.  The phrase "we are the 99%" became associated with OWS, and it represented the frustrations of a group that feels increasingly disenchanted and disenfranchised.  There are the millionaires and billionaires (1%) and then there's everybody else (99%).

What are your thoughts about the Occupy movement?  Are you pro...con...or just confused?  We'd like to know what you think on the BlogHer Opinion poll.
