Let’s Start Here – w/ ioby.org

99% – Here for a reason

99% – Here for a reason

Like many people, we’ve been wondering what Occupy Wall St. is all about. The constant refrain in the media has been “What’s their platform?” “What are their demands?” “Do they have a good reason to be there?” So we went down on Wednesday to find out.
