Forty+ Days at Occupy Wall Street
#OCCUPY WALL STREET is a leaderless, people-powered movement for democracy that began in America on Sept. 17 with an encampment in the financial district of New York City. Inspired by the Egyptian Tahrir Square uprising and Spanish acampadas, we vow to end the corruption by money of our democracy… It is now Day 46.

() Movement is spreading across US to hold Wall Street accountable.

This proposal was passed by the Occupy Oakland General Assembly on Oct. 26, 2011 in the reclaimed Oscar Grant Plaza. Paramilitary troops and various police agencies violently evicted occupiers and attacked Marine veteran Scott Olsen, but the occupiers returned. General Assembly: 1,607 people voted with 1,484 voting in favor of the resolution, 77 abstaining, and 46 voting against, which passed the proposal at 96.9% agreement. The GA operates on a modified consensus process that passes proposals with 90% in favor with abstaining votes removed from the final count. More
