Occupy Wall Street is a public relations movement. The protestors want to rally public support in fighting social and economic inequality, unemployment and political corruption. They claim that the super rich have amassed a lot of wealth onto themselves while the common American continues to languish in poverty. The movement is no way propaganda since the issues the protestors are campaigning for are real. The inequality gap continue to widen, the rate of unemployment is at its all time high while the government has been captured by the Wall Street multi millionaires (COLBERT NATION 2011).  The possibility of owning a home for most of the Americans is in doubt, the chances of landing a stable income are in question while the burden of student’s loan is unbearable. Wages have plummeted and standards of living deteriorated.
