Occupy Wall Street (NOT the American Spring)

Occupy Wall Street is an American protest inspired by the recent 3-year economic downturn, not by decades of abuse and hardships at the hands of dictatorial regimes (Arab Spring).  It "grew out of a call by Adbusters, a Vancouver-based activist network which boasts a mission to topple existing power structures and forge a major shift in the way we live" (Voice of America News, 13oct2011).
Well, it's about time the youth are enraged enough to get engaged in the socio-economic-political process!
(It takes Adbusters, Canadian, to get things moving, eh?)
