Antifa, Occupy Wall Street and, well, I don't know any other extremist liberal groups. Native Americans trying to protect their version of a church? College professors? I guess if you're the kind of jerk who thinks “Black Lives Matters” is the slogan of an extremist group, that's one. But radicalized liberal groups ...
Occupy Wall Street, 2011: In September 2011, a small group took over Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan to protest the growing wealth gap. The group wanted to highlight the fact that 1% of households in the United States own 40% of the wealth. What started as a localized act sparked a national and global ...

Occupy Wall Street — born out of America's inability to grapple with the inequality King warned about — faltered and then was crushed in 2011. The Black Lives Matter movement, always pushing against public opinion (much like the Civil Rights and Black Power movements), now must contend with the ...
[Photo: courtesy Design Museum] After all, Occupy Wall Street got its start just a year after Apple debuted the iPhone, in 2008. Over the next few years, Twitter, Facebook, and other platforms would shape movements including the Arab Spring–and later Black Lives Matter, Jeremy Corbyn's rise to power, and ...
The assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. on the evening of April 4, 1968, sparked riots across cities in the United States. Though many in the country had reviled King during his lifetime, eventually he came to be seen as a great American hero. King's campaign for nonviolent social change ended legal ...
Scholar Gene Sharp's three-volume work The Politics of Nonviolent Action serves as a basis for pragmatic nonviolent protest for movements like Occupy Wall Street, even though Sharp himself criticized the Occupy movement for having no discernible demands. His 198 methods of protest emphasized civil ...

Connected to all this popular outrage at the system bequeathed by Baby Boomers was a series of uprisings—Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, DREAMers, and more. Millennials have been at the forefront of each. And while none of these movements articulated their politics as uniformly socialist ...
Think of the Tea Party in 2009, Occupy Wall Street in 2011, and #MeToo in 2017. Collectively, the citizens and organizations that comprise our current post or cross-partisan movement are very energetic, and we are not yet coalesced. Largely because our biology is focused on what we DON'T want instead ...
What were they thinking? Coder Eric Bailey had seen one too many headlines casting millennials as “this weird, dehumanized, alien phenomenon,” as he put it, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. So like a good millennial, he decided to fight back with online mockery — creating a browser ...
One week after the horrendous mass shooting at a Florida high school in which 17 people were killed, the Executive Vice President of the National Rifle Association (NRA), Wayne LaPierre, addressed the Conservative Political Action Committee during its annual gathering at the National Harbor in ...
And she's lent her voice to a number of important political causes, finding herself on the frontlines of the civil rights battle in Selma, Alabama, the Occupy Wall Street protests, and the battle against the Dakota Access Pipeline at the Standing Rock Sioux Indian Reservation. Baez deserves the chance to rest a ...
Just in high schools in recent years, we have seen walkouts over Trump's election; over deportations; in support of striking teachers' unions and to save public schools slated for closure or budget cuts; in support of Occupy Wall Street; against police violence; and, yes, calling for justice for Trayvon. This is ...
Although the Wisconsin Uprising was the early riser in the US protest wave of 2011 that manifested in widespread bank protests, capitol occupations, and eventually, Occupy Wall Street, what happened in Wisconsin remains understudied and generally misunderstood. Many descriptions focus on the ...
In fact, teenagers are often at the forefront of change, which you can see with the Black Lives Matter movement, the Arab Spring protests, or Occupy Wall Street. Even here, at the UW, we can see how young people are taking matters into their own hands. Clubs and organizations like the Black Student ...
Tall, bearded, with gentle brown eyes, Occupy Wall Street veteran Jesse Myerson spends his days knocking on doors in the rundown neighborhoods of southern Indiana reminding voters of the enormous wealth of their country. His message, as an organizer for the progressive grassroots group Hoosier ...
On the left, a new generation of radicals, many of whom grew up through Occupy Wall Street or the Bernie Sanders campaign, criticize liberalism for its insufficiency and its legacy of compromises with the evils of capitalism, imperialism, and white supremacy. On the right, the collapse of neoconservatism ...
In 2011, the Ben & Jerry's board of directors issued a statement of solidarity with Occupy Wall Street protesters, scooping ice cream in Zucotti Park on several occasions for Occupiers. In 2013, the company came out in support of mandatory GMO labeling legislation, committing also to the transition of all ...

The Occupy protests accomplished one extremely important thing. They popularized the terms "The 1%" and "the 99%." Protesters affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street movement rally in Foley Square before marching though Lower Manhattan on October 5, 2011 in New York City. Mario Tama/Getty Images.
After working on Wall Street for seven years, she became a prominent member of Occupy Wall Street. We're also going to talk about the resignation of Gary Cohn, national economic adviser for President Trump. But first, let's start with this bank bill, Alexis Goldstein. ALEXIS GOLDSTEIN: Thanks, Amy.

There were Solidarity Day in 1981 and the Battle of Seattle in 1999 and marches against the Iraq War in 2003 and Occupy Wall Street in 2011 and, recently, a pair of anti-Trump Women's Marches. But those events were intermittent, exceptional, spasmodic. Generation X — discriminated against, passed ...
More than 90 were arrested while covering Occupy Wall Street protests in 2011 and 2012, the media attorneys wrote. “Arrests such as these thwart the well-established First Amendment right to record police activity in public, which is a crucial function journalists must be able to perform in order to ensure ...
Hong Kong's version of “Occupy Wall street”, the Umbrella movement against Beijing politics was the most important protest in recent years, lasting three months. But three years later, Hong Kong's democracy is still kept at bay. As hundreds paid homage to the 2014 protests on September 29 in Hong Kong, ...
Inspired by Occupy Wall Street, this training is part of an effort by the organization Moveon.org, for which 30,000 people have signed up nationwide. Called the 99% Spring, it is named for the 99% of the population in the United States who are not millionaires or billionaires, but who are increasingly ...

It's not an Occupy Wall Street-type questioning of liberal democracy, because these activists believe laws can make good government as strong and transparent as possible. It's not the 1960s, with young people leading the way — although there are lots of helpful teenagers in the background saying, “Mom, ...
I'd even occasionally take it out for journalism assignments, covering everything from Hurricane Sandy to Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter protests. Its svelte profile meant that it often wasn't noticed by my subjects. It was even great to sneak into concerts since no one pegged it for having a larger ...
For six weeks, in an occupation that would later have echoes in Occupy Wall Street and Standing Rock, people from all over the country caravanned to Washington, D.C., setting up tents and makeshift shelters, and created a flourishing village on the National Mall. Living among them, weathering heavy ...
“They,” as he would explain over the remainder of his speech, included not only Democratic politicians and the media, but a few more usual suspects: Black Lives Matter, antifa, Occupy Wall Street, professors assigning the Communist Manifesto and so on—the parties he warned would necessitate armed ...
The first thing she advises is to be wary of the movement for economic justice, which she depicts as a fanciful cause driven by the “well educated and relatively privileged” kids of Occupy Wall Street. “Populism in America is not anticapitalist,” she writes. Her argument might have been more persuasive had ...
Young people drove the Arab Spring protests that toppled dictatorships in Tunisia and Egypt. Young people in the Occupy Wall Street movement forced millions of America to confront the issue of inequality. A 23-year-old immigrant, Clara Lemlich, started a strike involving 15,000 factory workers in New York ...
The mayor unwittingly spoke of segregation: Politically correct Caucasians united with Black Lives Matter, NAACP, Occupy Wall Street: Their (illegal) civil actions in the past eight years more closely support the theories of Malcolm X — fight, loot, shoot, destroy, injure Republican-deplorables, anti-capitalism, ...
Summary: On Saturday thousands of women assembled to march for many, sometimes contradictory goals. Just like Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party. This is modern America. As these photos show, the March consisted of fun street parties — easily distinguished from serious political action. Hear Our ...
In mid-September 2011, protestors gathered in New York City's Zuccotti Park to voice their objections to income inequality, the influence of corporations on government policy, and corruption in the financial sector. It was called Occupy Wall Street. The protest occurred the same year that home foreclosures ...
After a nearly two-hour, one-sided conversation ranging on everything from legal weed to the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street, I realized how real those advisories were. As the year went on though, that colorful character became one of the best mentors I've ever had. She was more than just someone who ...
In other words, groups like Occupy Wall Street (remember them?), #BlackLivesMatter, Me Too, are likely to form spontaneously, sporadically, driven perhaps more by social media than any individual, no matter how charismatic that individual may be. Such groups may clash but, I think, their common interest ...
Decades before Occupy Wall Street mainstreamed the notion of protest as semi-permanent encampment, Washington was about to become the scene of a demonstration so fixed in place that it would have its own Zip code: 20013. The demonstration was to be the centerpiece of the Rev. Martin Luther King ...
DOWNTOWN MANHATTAN, NY — An Occupy Wall Street protester who sued the city after he was arrested during the 2011 demonstrations was awarded a single cent in damages by a jury on Monday. The protester Eric Gersbacher accused multiple of NYPD officers of roughly and wrongfully arresting him ...
There is no doubt that the U.S. delegation has something to tell the world. For example, Nikki Haley can share the American experience of dispersal of protest actions, tell in detail how, for example, mass arrests and suppression of the Occupy Wall Street movement were carried out or Ferguson was ...
Updated | Russia has hit out at the U.S. over its stance on the deadly protests in Iran—comparing the Iranian response to the demonstrations with the American authorities' reaction to Occupy Wall Street and the Ferguson riots. The Russian government has repeatedly tried to play down the unrest in Iran ...
Inspired by the Occupy Wall Street protest in New York City, thousands of people took to the streets in cities across the world to voice their anger about what they described as corporate greed. - Jeff Vinnick/Getty Images. This is just one of the stories from our "I've Always Wondered" series, where we tackle ...
The film highlights the history of Chile in the revolution and the Occupy Wall Street movement in the United States. “This film is made from a position of asking myself how does Chile and the U.S. tie with each other,” said Dorfman. The film includes Transamerican history, magical realism and revolutionary ...
Along with Kaplan, the architect James Sanders proposed a retrofitting of Liberty Plaza Park (now Zuccotti Park, the site of the Occupy Wall Street protests in 2011) that aimed to flush financial data out of the skyscrapers and onto the streets. An axonometric rendering here shows massive, Tokyo-style LED ...
There are debates about what makes a person who resides in a city like New York a New Yorker. Is it an amount of time? Is it a pastrami sandwich from Katz's Delicatessen? Perhaps it's an encounter with a window cleaner. These are the characters that we meet, without words, when we're in our offices—or ...
Until Occupy Wall Street, it was awkward to even mention the word capitalism. I could see that this lack of clarity was holding back the food movement, politically. So I decided to tell the story of how capitalism and our food system co-evolved. I also provide some very basic concepts in political economy (use ...
By 2011, tolerance of the discrepancy between the wealthy and the 99% had reached tipping point with the Occupy Wall Street movement. Trump's election, however, has somewhat undermined their efforts: “The uber-wealthy” Trump, Micah White argues, “is not what millions of Occupiers were dreaming of ...
You thought Starbucks was waging a war on Christmas when, in 2011, the company's holiday cups featured nutcrackers that bore a coincidental resemblance to the Guy Fawkes mask, at the time a symbol of Occupy Wall Street. You thought Starbucks was taking the Christ out of Christmas when its 2015 ...
Yes, I know, the United States is a deeply conservative country. Americans don't engage in periodic attempts to overthrow the system. There is no viable political party that threatens the status quo. When protesters gather in Washington, they have no intention of storming Congress, the White House, or the ...
I'm writing this several months after your coverage of the settlement of Andrew Hamer's excessive force case against the City of Eureka arising from police violence during the Occupy Wall Street protests several years ago, as well as subsequent discussion on social media and the local blogosphere.
