Occupy Wall Street: Movement against Social Inequality
OWS (Occupy Wall Street) is a movement against social and political inequality, widely-spread unemployment, corruption, greed, corporations’ undue influence, most importantly, the financial services sector-on government. The new series of protests was initiated by the Canadian Activist group Adbusters. The activist group started on 17 Sep, 2011 in Zuccotti Park of New York City’s Wall Street financial district.
The slogan of the protesters, involved in these series of protests is “We are the 99%” The slogan denotes that there is a constant growing wealth disparity in the United States in-between 1% and the remaining populace. Immediate prototypes for Occupy Wall Street are 2010’s British student protests, anti-austerity protests of the “indignados” (indignant) in Spain, Greece, and the Middle East’s’ Arab Spring protests.
Similar to Occupy Wall Street, these antecedents also depend on the electronic and social media messaging to avoid attempts to stop the protests.
Followed by the larger Occupy movement of leaderless protests in America as well as other parts of the world, the constantly-growing spat in the entire U.S. has captured the street and developed an existential identification with the homeless. The movement has been gaining momentum day-by-day and has now become the talk-of-the-town all over the world. Now that the main objective of this mass movement is to help and support the futures of lower and middle class families, so it is asking for the monetary donations that will be used for materials like Billboards, Flyer/Posters, banners, miscellaneous equipment, campaign brochures, communications, coordinating future events, and other campaign related necessities, etc.
On the whole, Occupy Wall Street donations will empower the Occupy Movement, by offering technical disaster-relief support, and helping those who suffer from financial, economic hardship because of the recession, e.g., the homeless shelters, unemployed, etc.
Thus, the movement will not only be financially stronger, but it will also get its predefined objective of helping the down-trodden people in the United States, and all over the world.
