Occupy Wall Street: One year later

What do you think about the Occupy Wall Street movement’s current efforts?

“It reacted strongly, but that was part of the problem. It was mostly reactionary. No actual concrete things happened. It’s become a joke, a joke for those in power. And I think that’s sad. It should mean something.”
-junior Abesh Aziz

“It’s evolved into a very community-oriented social movement. It’s a little fractionalized, but they’re  moving together toward a common cause that definitely needs to be said.”
-senior Evan Lewitus

“It’s a very narrow look on the problem of poverty or big business or big government. I’m just not that impressed with their success, because they focus on just one narrow slice of the pie.”
-Professor of Political Science Sue Hulett

“To be honest, I don’t know much about what they’re currently up to. Right now, I’m not that interested in the movement I’m more interested in the elections.”
-junior Nora McGinn
