Count most of us as Occupiers

Who is the Occupy Wall Street movement — most of us. It is not the powerful and wealthy 1 percent with their political connections. Occupy Wall Street is community groups, disillusioned young people, student organizations, and the public (the 99 percent), who have mobilized and joined together in resistance to currently unacceptable levels of inequality. The American government’s decision-making has been corrupted by armies of lobbyists and oceans of campaign contributions representing the financially well-connected. Occupy Wall Street protesters are in the streets and on campuses to rebel against these forces, who if left free to their own devices, would destroy the American way of life. Ron Lowe, Nevada City
