The intensity had lifted from Zuccotti Park by mid-morning as most protesters slept or released some unspent energy after the morning’s near eviction.If nothing else, today’s threat seemed to galvanize the protesters and instill some direction that had been missing before they banded together and fought the city.
The intensity of conviction is unbelievable. No one there doubts that the system is inherently out-of-whack and after this mornings outpouring of support, many feel validated.
“We’ll do whatever it takes to bring opportunity back to America,” one protester said. “”What choice do we have?”
In the meantime Zuccotti Park is largely filled with Americans sick of losing what it used to mean to be an American. This man stood on the corner reading the Constitution out loud.
