America is a flourishing democracy and the sole superpower of the world. So what could Americans protest against? The answer came in September after the tenth anniversary of 9/11 when the Occupy Wall Street movement began.
This will be a much tougher nut to crack as the spin is that 99% people are protesting against the 1% wealthiest people. It is a vague and nebulous battle against financial inequities, the evils of capitalism and unfair corporate influence.
But still, you have got to admire the will of the thousands of protestors in New York and many other parts of the world, who are together trying to bring about a reform in the way capitalism is being practiced today.
Many labour unions have expressed their support and this protest could yet become one of the key issues in the 2012 US Presidential Elections.
