After the Occupy Wall Street movement made its way to Austin, I headed over to take photos and document the movement in a more obscure part of the country.

While the majority of stories about the Occupy movement have focused on the people and police clashes, I found that the signs had the most to say, whereas a standard conversation with a protestor went something along the lines of:

"It’s about standing up for our rights, making our voices, the 99% heard, for once...and...hey man, you got a cigarette?"

That said, I ran into a man who summarized the Austin movement better than I could have imagined. His interview, paired with the photos of the demonstration, paint a tremendously incisive portrait of Occupy Austin.
