- The Occupy Wall Street protests have inspired activists across the United States and overseas, but many see the roots of the occupation in the public squares of Cairo, Athens and Madrid. On Monday, Democracy Now! interviewed one Spanish protester who traveled from Madrid to New York City to support the budding movement. “I came here just for this because we started our movement four months ago on 15 of May,” Monica Lopez said. “I decided to come to support you and to try to help you, like giving you the advice so you don’t waste the time we lost and make the same mistakes.”
