The Occupy Wall Street Movement


The Occupy Wall Street began as the alleged American version of the "Arab Spring," that movement in the Middle East that so far has toppled dictatorial regimes in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya, and which has embroiled Bahrain, Yemen, and Syria in civil conflict. Over the past three months, the Occupy Wall Street movement has metastasized into protests in multiple U.S. cities, and engendered Occupy clones in Occupy Seattle, Occupy Oakland, and so forth.

As the movement spread, violent clashes took place between the protesters and the police. Some of the more infamous incidents include the spraying of an 84 year-old woman in Seattle, and the pepper spraying of seated protesters at UC Davis in mid-November, 2011. See the video below of the UC Davis pepper spraying:
