Occupying Wall Street. The Inside Story of an Action that Changed America
On September 17th 2011 a small group of anti-capitalist demonstrators assembled amid the chrysanthemum planters of Zuccotti Park in downtown Manhattan. Their purpose was straightforward: to occupy the square in protest at the bankers on nearby Wall Street who, having wrecked the American economy, had got away scot-free, continuing to pay themselves eye-watering bonuses while the rest of the country was devastated by foreclosures and layoffs.
