CLAYTON PATTERSON CAPTURES WALL STREET OCCUPATION
Published in: BOWERY BOOGIE, New York, September 23, 2011
Last Saturday, an estimated ►3,000 demonstrators mobbed Wall Street with the intention of “protesting the disparity of power and wealth that exists in our society.” The event is organized by the leaderless resistance of OccupyWallSt.org. Even though “occupation” crowds are starting to dwindle a bit, folks are still being detained. What follows is a photo essay by legendary neighborhood chronicler Clayton Patterson. He’s been documenting the developments there.
