With the one-year anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement around the corner, an activist says the resistance movement is committed to pursuing its goals and fight against social and economic inequalities in the United States.
“Regardless of whether the TV cameras are on or off we are going to continue being a popular movement of resistance that is going to continue into future, perusing our campaign on student debt, environmental issues and foreclosures.” said Mark Bray in a phone interview with Press TV’s U.S. Desk on Saturday.
“Monday is the one-year anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street and this weekend leading into Monday we have educational events, concerts and assemblies,” Bray added.
“On Monday we are going to surround Wall Street around 7 A.M. to disrupt the morning commute of the bankers going to their jobs,” the OWS activist explained.
The Occupy Wall Street (OWS) demonstrators have been protesting against an unequal distribution of wealth in the United States, wherein one percent of the American population benefits from the capitalist system, while the other ninety-nine percent is exploited.
The protesters accuse the U.S. authorities of ignoring their needs while serving the interests of the country’s one percent.
