Question of the Day: Occupy Boston
What do you think of the Occupy Boston campaign?
We'll be asking Easton Patch readers a different question every weekday. Questions could range from local decisions made by officials, to state issues, to national politics and entertainment. Whatever it is, we want to know what EASTON thinks!
Fueled by "occupy Wallstreet," which sent protesters to New York City claiming to represent the "bottom 99 percent" of the population, Boston-area residents have traveled to Boston this week to "occupy Boston."
The protests are a reaction to what protesters are calling inequality in society.
“We’re bringing our message to the 99 percent of Americans that feel that their ability to provide for themselves has been eroded and that their representation in government has been undermined,’’ Nadeem Mazen, 28, of Cambridge, told the Boston Globe. “Of the 1 percent, a lot of them are using that wealth to subvert the democratic process.’’
