Kanye West and Russell Simmons Visit “Occupy Wallstreet” [VIDEO]
If you weren't aware of whats going on in various parts of the country. Even downtown Buffalo there is a movement called Occupy Wall Street. What Occupy Wall street is a bunch of demonstrations from people who are frustrated with the way the government works basically the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer.
They have taken to the streets to occupy places where corporate interest take place to show the frustration of the 99% of the population. It all started in in New York City in Zuccotti Park, formerly "Liberty Plaza Park". The protest was originally called for by the Canadian activist group Adbusters.
If you would like to participate in the "movement" locally they are downtown Buffalo in front of City Hall everyday. While i commend the efforts of the Occupy Wall Street people it just seems like a Left Version of the "Tea Party", and I think all of the "occupying", will be over as soon as the temperature changes.
Well Kanye West and Russell Simmons went out to be with the people protesting yesterday. They stuck around for a couple of minutes and drove off in a car. Here is the video, Kanye really didnt have much to say .
