The Goal and Message of Occupy Wall Street

The Goal and Message of Occupy Wall Street: #occupywallstreet The nearly two week occupation of a New York park near Wall Street known as Occupy Wall Street, initially undertaken by a few, has grown into a significant mobilization of people. The action should not have to be anything more than what it is at face value.
