Occupy Wall Street went global this weekend with protests launching in major cities around the world.What started as a few dozen people camping out in Lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park has become a world-wide craze.
We’ve collected YouTube videos uploaded by protesters all around the world to get a sense of how major cities aired their grievances.
You’ll see that there are definitely differences from place to place (like, from electronic dance parties in Berlin to the crowd singing in unison in South Africa).
However the protests manifested themselves, though, the sentiment was the same across the board. All the occupiers want to see big money out of government, and they want to see the wealth gap narrowed.
Basically, there’s no denying it now, this movement is hardly fringe.
In Tokyo, protesters made it a point to march to Tokyo Electric Power Co., the company that owns the Fukushima nuclear plant.
2,000 protesters showed up to demonstrate in front of St. Paul's Cathedral in London. Julien Assange was with them.
