Day Five in my Ten Occupy Wall Street Demonstrators in Ten Days series: Ginger.
There is so much news to talk about regarding the Occupy Wall Street movement. A video has surfaced on The Huffington Post that allegedly shows a NYC police officer striking protestors with a baton. A New York Police Department spokesperson was asked about the incident but could not comment because they had not seen the video. President Obama acknowledged the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations in his news conference yesterday morning where he said “The protesters are giving voice to a more broad-based frustration about how our financial system works.” Reporter for Mother Jones, Andy Kroll compared the occupy Wall Street protests to the ones in Wisconsin earlier this year in a new article posted yesterday entitled “From Wisconsin to Wall Street, an Economic Reckoning.” Finally, the amazing Author, Naomi Klein spoke at the Occupy Wall Street demonstration in New York last night. She wrote a beautifully moving speech which can be read on The Nation’s website here.
