The Occupy Wall Street protests, organised by Adbusters and hacker group Anonymous, are now in their fourth day. Set up in Zucotti Park on Liberty Street, demonstrators are expressing their disappointment with the major banks’ handling of the financial crisis and their involvement in politics.
Though organisers say they are hoping to create an “American Tahrir Square,” after the major demonstration in Egypt’s overthrow of Hosni Mubarak, participation in the protest has been well short of the 20,000-person goal, and has dwindled considerably from Saturday’s showing.
In light of their resistance to the banks and financial infrastructure in America, Business Insider went down to Wall Street yesterday to ask the few dozen protesters how they manage their own money. See what they had to say.
