Who is Occupy Wall Street?

Occupy Wall Street or OWS is an ongoing series of demonstrations initiated by the Canadian activist group Adbusters. Occupy Wall Street started on September 17, 2011 in Zuccotti Park, located in New York City’s Wall Street financial district. The protests are against social and economic inequality, high unemployment, greed, as well as corruption, and the undue influence of corporations—particularly from the financial services sector—on government. The protesters’ slogan We are the 99% refers to the growing difference in wealth in the U.S. between the wealthiest 1% and the rest of the population.

Here is some information, diagrams, numbers and descriptions explaining in detail exactly who Occupy Wall Street is.

  1. Hi,

    I was looking for a way to become involved here in Europe, I got to this comment page and these is a banner advertisement for Bentley, and the new Continental V8. This is a o.1% of the 1% automobile that costs well over 100,000Euro. How can you possibly be for the 99% when advertising this “PIG MOBILE”?
