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.

The protesters called themselves The 99 Percent Takeover.

Protestors demanded a total moratorium on foreclosures, saying Wells Fargo’s lending practices were immoral, and accusing the bank’s leadership of being insensitive to the needs of ordinary people.

On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about how the Occupy movement can continue to be effective.  On Monday, several west coast Occupiers shut down their ports, while other movements attempted to halt operations at Walmart headquarters.  What do you think the targets should be? And what are the most effective methods? Are there ways the movement can be more inclusive?  Join us at 10 or email us at feedback@yourcallradio.org. What should Occupy 2012 look like? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
