#Occupy Wall Street Roundup- Oct 11

So this is, in no particular order, a round-up of what I’ve been seeing about #OccupyWallStreet.

At this point, there are multiple conversations and angles involved in the protest:

Is it a safe space for non-whites?
Is the term “occupy” offensive by itself?

(sarcasm)Also, are the bankers who are drinking champagne and taunting the protesters a*****es?(/sarcasm)

(Last answer is, yes. The others are more serious debates that as a white woman, I’m just going to shut up and listen to, in hopes that I can learn something.)

It’s also, starting to spring up all over the place. There’s movements in the states, in Canada, in the UK. I’ll put as much as I find here.
