of September, hundreds of people gathered in Wall Street, New York to protest against the corrupt financial system
that has systematically taken over the US government and enslaved the people. This movement became known as Occupy Wall Street
and has now begun to spread to hundreds of other locations around the US and the world
, including here in Auckland
. The video on the right explains in more detail what Occupy is about and how they organise and make decisions with direct democracy
Here are some other good video clips about the Occupy movement.
