Vox populi, vox dei #OCCUPYWALLSTREET
"We are not dreamers, we are awakening from a dream which is turning into a nightmare. We are not destroying anything, we are merely witness to how the system is gradually destroying itself." - Slavoj Zizek. A photo essay on Occupy Wall street Protest.
On the first day of Occupy Wall street protests, not more than a 500 large crowd assembled at the Financial district in Manhattan.
The slogans were disparate from Corporate greed to stopping the execution of Troy Davis in Atlanta.
But there was a general sense of agreement that things are going wrong.
The crowd marched to the nearest Zuccotti park as the police closed down the road to the Wall street.
The most amazing part of the occupation has been that it started off as a leaderless movement and it continue to grow so, but the feeling of 99% bind them together.
Twenty days later these non violent protests have spread to the other cities and thousands have joined since then. Mainstream media could not stop, but hear their voice.
Zuccotti park has turned the main hub of activities, a strong commune sharing responsibilities and planning future course of activities.
Wall street has been occupied beyond doubt and the messages more cohesive than ever before.
Its now about attracting more of those voiceless 99% and give them a common ground to stand.
With lots of R-evol-utionary love ~ From Zuccotti park!
