The 99%

Right now it’s difficult not seeing all that is going on around the world in regards to the growing movement that has come to be known as “Occupy Wall st”. Spawned from the growing anger of people aware of the misuse of governmental power by big banks and multinational corporations, it’s in the news, on blogs, Facebook, and ultimately it’s in the streets of more and more cities and communities across the globe, continually breathing an electrified life into itself. I’ve had the opportunity to spend a bit of the month of October in Zuccotti Park, symbolically renamed “Liberty Square” by the OWS movement. This is the birthplace of a growing amount of people voicing their disdain with the current inequalities of todays economic system at the hands of corporate greed. Much has happened in the month of October alone. A time where in many ways the growing voice of the 99% still seems in its infancy. These are some photographs of what I have seen while there.
