Occupy Wall Street general assembly in Washington Square, Oct. 8 (@miss_millions/Twitpic
The rise of Occupy Wall Street has been nothing short of meteoric. After struggling to gain notice at first, Occupy Wall Street has been one of the top media stories
throughout the month of October. Online support for the movement has increased nearly tenfold
, and local solidarity groups have appeared in hundreds
if not thousands
of communities around the world. It just five weeks, Occupy Wall Street has already shifted the national conversation
on our economic woes away from deficits and spending cuts, and toward unemployment and Wall Street dominance of government.
Thrilling as it has been, this early period of sensational growth will not last forever. The time is coming, not long from now, when Occupy Wall Street will need to find new ways to strengthen its base of support and stay in the national conversation.
