Occupy Wall Street as Described by New York Financial Journalist

“We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments. We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.”  That statement is part of an official declaration from the heart of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Friday on State of the News, we checked in with New York financial journalist David Weidner of MarketWatch who gave his impressions of the protests:  the fundamental issues behind it, where the protesters are at present, and where the movement may go.
