Occupy: 5 Years Later

Occupy Wall Street began 5 years ago in New York City's Zuccotti Park, starting slow before spreading across the United States and inspiring similar protests against economic inequality around the globe. The movement disappeared after police crackdowns, but it never really went away, manifesting itself in actions and campaigns against neoliberalism in the years since. teleSUR looks to the past – and to the future – of the fight for systemic alternatives and ways of living.
