Sustainability Table at Occupy Wall Street

Who says the Occupy Wall Street protest is only about signs, and chants, and the First Amendment? For many, it’s also about reinventing a societal system that’s been broken for a long time.

What started as a tiny sign reading “Sustainability,” in a corner of Occupied Liberty Plaza has become an integral part of the survival process at Occupy Wall Street.

Everyday, volunteers meet to discuss and implement systems that will help sustain the people of the occupation as well as the environment in which they exist.
