Occupy WHAT

Occupy Wall Street
September 17, 2011 – present

Occupy what? Who doesn’t know about Occupy Wall Street? It is the growing occupation movement happening on Wall Street and around the world. It began on September 17, 2011 in Liberty Square in Manhattan’s Financial District. The movement has spread to all over the United States and cities around the world. The video above was filmed by Alex Mallis and Lily Henderson. It gives us an inside look of OWS. Although the protesters are from different states different countries, they all have the one same dream. “OWS is fighting back against the corrosive power of major banks and multinational corporations over the democratic process, and the role of Wall Street in creating an economic collapse that has caused the greatest recession in generations.” (OccupyWallSt.org)

So what else is in OSW? Actually it’s interesting to see what people’re wearing in OSW. Liberty Square probably is a “fashion landmark” recently. You might find all kind of styles there, even more than the runway. Forget about those brand names and trends, they dress as who they really are. They speak up their minds and fight for their rights. Check out Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street below and get more ideas.

Show our support and play your music loud.
