“Honestly, it’s even better than last year. Maybe, I’m an exception.”
More than 40 days, 30,000 feet of granite, hundreds of occupiers, and zero Porta-Potties — perhaps one of the most extraordinary aspects of the Occupy Wall Street movement is the logistical finesse of its participants. As the protest nears its second month, Zuccotti Park has been transformed into a city within a city, complete with a kitchen, a sanitary team, a library and a sea of sleeping bags.
Protesters spend their days engaging in general assemblies and group discussions on issues like taxing the rich, cuts in public spending and tackling poverty.
