‘Occupy Wall Street’ Movement: For the Young and the Young-at-Heart


Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—October 14, 2011.  The movement that began as Occupy Wall Street is now sweeping the nation. It seems that every major city in the country is now being occupied, and retirees are playing a key role. In St. Louis today, retirees are gathering with the unemployed and the young on a march to the arch. Once there, they are examining roads and bridges that are in desperate need of repair; the repair job could give thousands of out-of-work Missourians jobs. Up in New England on Tuesday, seniors held a rally in conjunction with the Occupy Hartford protest to show their support for the Occupy Movement. Down South, retirees came out in both Savannah, Georgia – where they braved gale force winds and steady rain – and West Palm Beach, Florida to protest. Texas Alliance members supported the “Occupy Dallas” movement yesterday in a “Jobs Not Cuts – Make Them Pay!” rally outside Rep. Hensarling’s Dallas office.
