OCCUPY explained by The Guardian newspaper:
The 99 %. Who were the occupiers? Huffington Post asked and showed these faces, photographed by August Bradley.
There was a lot of community spirit during the "occupation" and the use of
the people's microphone is memorable.
Energy bikes were used to charge lap top computers. They created a lot of interest and were symbolic in many aspects. Here is more info.

So many good things come from America: watch this film posted here with this text:
"This eye-opening video serves to remind us that people in their Golden Years are sometimes forgotten, but they’re still very much alive. At first, the participants answer a very simple yet poignant question: “What do you see when you look at me?” The words are devastating: senile, frail, dependent. But by the end of the video, the mood completely changes and these participants show us who they truly are — the amazing things no one else bothers to see."
This film is important in our age of ageism
