Occupy Wall Street
In September of 2011 a protest movement that ultimately was named Occupy Wall Street began in the streets of New York City. The main issues were social and economic inequality, greed, corruption and the undue influence of corporations on government—particularly from the financial sector. Protestors inhabited Zucotti Park for two months and led mass marches, direct actions and mostly non violent protests. They were eventually ousted but not before the idea spread across the globe and at it's height was taking place in over 1000 cities across the globe. These images were taken from October 2011-May 2012. As we approach the one year anniversary of Occupy, the future of the movement is uncertain.
