September 17th marks the one year anniversary of the Occupation of Wall Street in Zuccotti Park. Since then city squares around the world have been occupied in the name of social and economic justice. A direct action turned into a movement. To commemorate the events of the past year organizers in New York City and around the country are planning actions to bring the focus of the movement back to its origin, Wall Street. We will be joined by Occupy Wall Street Organizers Austin Guest and Nina Mehta and Tamara Shapiro of InterOccupy.net to discuss S17 in NYC and solidarity actions around the country.
