Nobody i've talked to, including those present and active, are fully cognizant of what exactly is going down on Wall St. But it is for sure being occupied. Although technically it's not Wall St proper, but a small square park in the Financial District - that's just an unworthy distinction.
Not being politically minded in any way, i doubt i would have much interest in the hullabaloo even if it made make some modicum of sense. What i can appreciate is the overwhelming creativity, resourcefulness and generosity present in the atmosphere. People sewing sleeping bags, painting clothing, painting each other, shouting original poems, bringing back the art of protest singing, opening libraries, passing out food, and holding giGANtic drum circles for any reason, on any grounds make me happy. Style, art, and love are reason enough to stand up and shout.
