    In the fall of 2011, as Occupy Wall Street reached its pinnacle, anger towards the financial sector wasn't limited to Lower Manhatttan. When Bank of America announced a $5 debit card fee, it caused some savvy citizens to turn to social media to empower a grassroots movement that would eventually sweep the nation and force the big banks to rethink tactics many interpreted as consumer bullying.

      In the fall of 2011, a small group of people marched on Wall Street to protest the lack of accountability the financial mecca had assumed for the U.S. recession. Soon, that small group expanded to thousands, and eventually millions as tech-savvy leaders spread the message of Occupy Wall Street globally.

            This event, presented by the Committee on Globalization and Social Change, brought together in conversation young activists from Egypt, Spain, and the Occupy Wall Street Movement in the U.S. The conversation addressed the origins of the movements in each country and the linkages between them, especially in terms of the creation and use of novel democratic forms, the importance of claiming public spaces, and the challenges of commitment to nonviolence. Together participants and the audience discussed some of the meanings and implications of the movements in Spain, Egypt and the United States, their relationships to one another, and the notion of "global solidarity" in a time of global crisis.

                    www.DemocracyNow.org - Speaking from Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan, attorney Michael Ratner of the Center for Constitutional Rights tells Democracy Now! that New York City's efforts to displace Occupy Wall Street protesters in order to clean the park violates their First Amendment rights and would have led to a major confrontation. "Apart from the illegality of it, it was just too massive," Ratner says. "It would have been a bloodbath. The idea that they were going to come in here when there were thousands of people all over the place — union people everywhere — they could not have successfully closed this park down. … It's too big now. This park is becoming a permanent feature of the next generation of protests." Ratner was a co-signer of a letter sent last night from the Occupy Wall Street Legal Working Group to Brookfield Properties, who must maintain the private park for public use, that claimed the enforcement action it requested to New York City in order to clean the park raised serious First Amendment and other legal concerns, and warned that police action in the park without a prior court order would be unconstitutional and unlawful. Democracy Now! also interviews Yotam Marom, an organizer with Occupy Wall Street, who discusses the upcoming global day of solidarity protests on Saturday.
