Today on Your Call: Does the Occupy movement matter now?

On the next Your Call, we’ll speak with two Occupy Wall Street activists, Jen Waller and Tom Hintze, who have been traveling across the country with their project, Less Wall, More Street -- talking to people about how to fight state repression of protest.  Close to a year after it began, has Occupy changed the conversations we’re having about the economy and our democracy?  Join us at 10am PST or post a comment here.  As the presidential election approaches, will the voices of the 99% be heard?  Up next on Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Jen Waller, Occupy Wall Street activist and co-founder of “Less Wall, More Street”

Tom Hintze, Occupy Wall Street activist and co-founder of “Less Wall, More Street”

Michael Terry, Occupy Oakland street medic

David Giesen, Occupy Bernal activist
