What I wrote about the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators last week infuriated a lot of people — and for an obvious reason too.So I decided to spend more time in their Zuccotti Park encampment, this time not on the periphery, but as an insider, to see what it’s really like. (I did not stay the entire night at Occupy Wall Street since it was raining and I live near the park.)
Af first glance, the Occupy Wall Streeters appear to be a disheveled rag-tag army of hippie civil disobedients that don’t really have a clear message.
But don’t let their appearance fool you.
There are tons of highly educated people that understandably feel angry at big banks and the government.
While the group’s message continues to remain vague, what’s clear now is they are starting to organise and they are definitely garnering attention.
