Occupy Syracuse on The Campbell Conversations
What drives those who have invested their time in the Occupy Wall Street movement, and what message is at the movement's core? In this edition of the Campbell Conversations, three Syracuse activists who had been camping at the Occupy Syracuse site prior to being evicted by the city tell their stories and make their case.
What the conversation reveals is that there is great diversity in what the activists want to see accomplished, but at the same time they are united in a basic concern about growing inequality, the availability of economic opportunity, and a deeply held sense that the political process has become fundamentally corrupted.
The conversation is made all the more poignant by the fact that it took place literally an hour after the campers received notice to vacate their site.
