It also advocated for democracy to be practiced since it seemed that only 1% was involved in running of affairs of the people. The movement involved a lot of physical protests which began on 17th September 2011, which led to some people being arrested (Gilder, 12).
At first people were confused about it since they did not understand what it was all about but due to the many protests, people have become more aware of it through the media especially social media. This has led to people being more receptive about it and the so called 99% have one voice of upholding democracy in leadership and trying to bridge the wealthy versus the poor gap in all aspects such as economic, social and ecologically (Gilder, 30).
Occupy Wall Street movement is like an organization that has many people in it (occupants) who have some kind of unity in terms of speaking with one voice of their frustrations in how their governments rule them and affect their lives greatly. This organization has no particular leader and everyone is virtually a leader. Anybody can join the movement and propose ideas whereby they are given a chance to explain themselves and why they think in that particular way.
The idea behind the OWS is that they advocate for democracy hence give everyone a chance to express themselves unlike the 1% that rules them with no consideration of the majority since the minority take themselves in high regard than the people they rule (Gaviria & Smith).
The movement was very popular at the beginning and most people wanted to be associated with it as it was a channel of voicing their frustrations to their government and the inequality in the society. However the movement may be slowly fading away due to the challenges that face a virtual organization such as leadership problems and finances to keep it going (Gaviria & Smith).
