The 99 Percent Movement

"The 99 Percent Movement"

Emboldened by the inspiring actions of activists who have been protesting in New York City since Sept. 17, thousands and thousands of individuals are flocking to the streets in cities across America to express their disgust and anger with a political and financial system that unjustly rewards the richest 1 percent at the expense of everyone else.

The original “Occupy Wall Street” protest has grown beyond its name — it is no longer solely about the courageous people camped out at Zuccotti Park; it is a nationwide movement bonded by a shared refrain: “We are the 99 percent.” Today, ThinkProgress is launching a new site to cover the 99 Percent Movement, to help explain their grievances and document their successes. Please check it out HERE.

We’ll be updating the page, so please check it frequently.
