Wiki

Occupy Wall Street (OWS) is an ongoing series of demonstrations in New York City based in Zuccotti Park in the Wall Street financial district. The protests were initiated by the Canadian activist group Adbusters.[6][7] They are mainly protesting social and economic inequality, corporate greed, corporate power and influence over government (particularly from the financial services sector), and of lobbyists.[8][9][10] The participants' slogan "We are the 99%"[11] refers to the difference in wealth between the top 1% and the other citizens of the United States.[5]
