Michael Kink: No way to stop ‘Occupy Wall Street’

Michael Kink, executive director of the Strong Economy for All Coalition, shared his experience of being inside the New York Stock Exchange while protesters outside tried to shut it down.

“Occupy Wall Street” protesters on Thursday had hoped to prevent financial workers from reaching their offices, but police barricaded the narrow streets around Wall Street ahead of time. The New York Stock Exchange opened on time and operated normally.

But Kink said those inside the New York Stock Exchange were still affected by the demonstration.

“The traders, the people on the floor clearly felt the Occupy’s shut down this morning,” he explained on Countdown with Keith Olbermann.

As the protest eventually made its way to Foley Park, there were an estimated 5,000 to 10,000 people in the crowd. The demonstration then made its way to the Brooklyn Bridge, and had grown even larger.

Foley Square was wildly diverse, and I think folks are gonna take that back to their neighborhoods,” Kink said. “There are bridges being built here that I think are going to last, and there’s no way this movement is going to stop. It’s going to continue until real change comes to the country.”

At least 300 people were arrested during the protest, according to the Associated Press.

Any support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

Please remember I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has been taken offline by their original hosters which would be unavailable for viewing if it wasn't for this site. Therefore I would kindly ask you to help support me so that the site can continue doing what I think is an important job as well as reporting on stories the mainstream media would rather you didn't know about. I personally think it is important to host material such as removed reports that show that even FOX News once repoted on Israeli spy rings following the 9.11 hijackers before September 11th Or publishing the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was removed from their site once they enacted some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power.

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation, especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful!
