Occupy Wall Street began on September 17, 2011, with a small group of people camping out and protesting in the financial district in New York City.
Inspired by the protesters who occupied Cairo's Tahrir Square during the Egyptian Spring Revolution earlier this year, the movement, as such, is driven by people fed up with the corrupt monetary systems of the United States seeks to embolden the voices of the 99 percent of Americans who don't appear to have any control over our economy.
Twenty days later, the movement has spread all across the nation and abroad.
