On the latest #JustSolutions, Free Speech TV speaks with Arun Gupta about what mainstream media got wrong about the Occupy Wall Street movement. #OccupyWallStreet It’s been ten years since thousands of protesters took to the streets of downtown Manhattan to “Occupy Wall Street.” Some Occupy protestors set up camp in New York’s Zuccotti Park for nearly two months and the occupy movement spread around the world.
In early October 2011, “The Occupied Wall Street Journal” began publication to document the protest and the underlying issues. One of the journal’s founders, Journalist Arun Gupta joins us to reflect on the ten year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street, its influence on subsequent protests and the role of media in the movement.
