    What does that mean exactly?

    Not do business with banks/large corporations? Oops, no, most of the protesters still do business with big banks and virtually all with large corporations.

    Not working for "the man"? Oops, no, that's exactly the problem they're trying to solve, not enough jobs. The employed people are already working for "the man", the unemployed aspire to be.

    Just going out and protesting some amorphous concept doesn't help you. It looks like (and in fact probably is, people just blowing off steam). When the protesters get tired, hungry, run out of money, what have you, they are going to go back to work or the business of finding work.

    With specific demands, it might be different, but without it, it's just a mob that's vaguely angry at something.
