The Encampment in Liberty Plaza
With the Occupy Wall Street movement going into it's forth week, many people have felt the need to take heed to what the movement is calling for action on. Yesterday, thousands of people attended the larger general assembly in Washington Square where people were able to use a soap box to get their opinions and suggestions out in the open. The reason why the organizers decided to bring the general assembly to Washington Square Park is mostly because the movement has grown beyond the small size of their home base and encampment at Zuccotti Park.
Just going to Liberty Plaza and seeing what is happening there is the reason why this movement has been as important than any other movement that this nation has endured in the past. It is a movement that is exposing the facts about the failings of our socio-economic system and we will no longer sit by as giant financial institutions gamble our lives away.
