Occupy Wall Street
More than a month and a half into the movement, Occupy Wall Street activists throughout the country are promising continued protests against growing economic inequality. On today’s broadcast, we’ll talk with the local reporter covering the Occupy Norfolk movement. We’ll also speak with historians about the challenges of leaderless protests and why some movements catch fire, while others die out.
