The Faces of Occupy Wall Street

Protestors of the "Occupy Wall Street" movement have occupied Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan for several weeks now, but who exactly these people are what they are protesting still remains somewhat of a mystery.

The movement's website, Occupy Wall Street, states that “Occupy Wall Street is a leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders, and political persuasions...The one thing we all have in common is that we are the 99 percentthat will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1 percent.”

Although many of the protestors are 30 years old and younger, this common goal of fighting corporate greed and corruption has also attracted an array of people from all backgrounds, including business owners, retirees, and union workers.
