Why did I participate ?

I work right by the movement as a cocktail waitress and checked the protest out for myself. A lot of the topics directly hit home for me, which include: the distribution of proper health care for the working class, helping to create opportunities for the working class as opposed to primarily serving the 1 percent, who many times are more favorably served  than the struggling ones such as myself. I identified with people who were camping out in sleeping bags for the causes to be heard by the public and many of those people were highly educated and hard workers just trying to meet their financial obligations and make a name for themselves.

What the movement means to me?

The movement means a change for the positive in terms of supporting the working class to have more opportunities for growth and a chance to both be heard and given the proper attention they deserve. The movement is a chance for equal distribution to serve fairness and create peace in all parties rather than one elite group. The movement means freedom to let voices be heard and goals to be achieved rather than the unreachable american dream.
