Description: "An essential and galvanizing on-the-ground account of how oxygen suddenly and miraculously flooded back into the American brain."—Jonathan LethemFor two months in fall 2011, Zuccotti Park, squeezed deep in a canyon between bankers' skyscrapers in lower Manhattan, was the site of an extraordinary political action, home to the hundreds of anti-capitalist protestors who camped there overnight and the thousands who visited to join the protest.Now, in a new book collectively authored by a group of writers active in support of the occupation, the story of Occupy Wall Street has been told in a vivid, fast-paced narrative.Occupying Wall Streetdraws on extensive interviews with those who took part in the action to bring an authentic, inside-the-square history to life. In these pages you will discover in rich detail how the protest was devised and planned, how its daily needs were met, and how it won overwhelming support across the nation.The future course of Occupy Wall Street remains unclear. But under the banner "We are the 99%," the protest has given birth to America's most important progressive movement since the civil rights marches half a century ago. This is the story of that beginning.Writers for the 99%is a group of writers and researchers, active in supporting Occupy Wall Street, who came together to create this book.
