Tuesday marked the two year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. Two years ago protesters hit the street in mass numbers to show their disdain for the economic state of the country and their anger towards the US government for bailing out the big banks. So what has changed in the last couple years? Occupy activists Sam Jewler, Mike Perlman and Ilana Alazzeh join us to give us an update on the movement.
The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund has obtained documents that prove OWS protesters encamped in Terry Schrunk Plaza in Portland, Oregon, were evicted for political and business reasons – not for the reasons the city stated, which were health and safety concerns. The documents also shed light on police activity in Boston and across the nation in terms of the OWS movement in general. The Resident (aka Lori Harfenist) talks about the issue.
