Occupy Wall Street Libraries

What is Occupy Wall Street?


From the Adbusters site:
#OCCUPYWALLSTREET is a leaderless people powered movement for democracy that began in America on September 17 with an encampment in the financial district of New York City. Inspired by the Egyptian Tahrir Square uprising and the Spanish acampadas, we vow to end the monied corruption of our democracy

A movement has a library?


Yes.
