Demonstrators are protesting a financial and political system wherein those with the most power and wealth secure these to themselves through crooked politics, monetary manipulation, police and military hegemony, and exploitation of the poor and marginalized.
I did not shoot any of the video myself, I found it all on youtube. I've curated them in such a way that they tell the story of what happened when peaceful demonstrators in NYC were confronted by NYPD (or perhaps it's NYPD that was confronted by a radical movement of peace?)
And all to the tune of Aerosmith's Eat The Rich. Enjoy!
