Former Polish President And Solidarity President Lech Walesa Backs Occupy Wall Street

The Associated Press published an interview this morning with Lech Walesa, who was a leader of the Solidarity union that liberated Poland from the Soviet Union and a former Polish president. Walesa explains that he supports the protests on Wall Street, saying he is “weighing now how and when to best support them.” “For now, capitalism is working to produce more money but does not see the people,” Walesa said. “This problem is getting worse across the world.”
