Who Occupies Wall Street?: Don’t Believe the Hype
It is, no doubt, a movement fueled by the stamina and revolutionary spirit of youth. They are the stalwarts, living in Zuccotti Park (and now setting up similar camps across the country), shouldering the day-to-day burden, but when they put out the call they are joined in the thousands by an almost indescribable array of people. It seemed at least half of the marchers were age 35 and up…and I do mean up. There were grey haired ladies with walkers and canes marching alongside tattooed Teamsters. Boomers aplenty. Teachers, nurses, auto workers.
The young may the backbone of this movement, but their supporters are, more and more, who we once saw as the backbone of America -who are now being treated like greedy parasites on our economy. Together they are rejecting not only this characterization by the right, but the inaction and empty promises of the left.
Almost makes you feel patriotic…
