Occupy Wall Street Comes to Lansing

On September 17, thousands of people started the new social movement Occupy Wall Street when they took to the streets of Manhattan.  In the past month, the movement has spread to several American cities, including Lansing. Occupy Lansing began with a Capitol protest on October 15th and is based at Lansing’s Reutters Park.  The protesters are taking a stand against corporate greed and social inequality. “I’m really upset with the economic calamity that was caused by Wall Street,” Howell resident Jim Williams said.
