Occupy Wall Street & Occupy Movement

Occupy Wall Street (OWS) is a protest movement based in New York City's Zuccotti Park, in the heart of the financial district. The protest, inspired by recent "Arab Spring" events, started on September 17, 2011 and was initiated by Adbusters, a Canadian non-profit social activist group.

Supporters of the movement seek to call attention to economic inequality, corporate profits, the influence of big business in government and politics, and the aftermath of the global financial crisis.

Originating in New York City, protests have spread nationwide and to other countries. Collectively, the protests are known as the "Occupy Movement."

This guide will introduce you to the Occupy Movement activities, underlying themes, news and media, books, articles, and primary sources.
