  •  The focus on police brutality (6+ / 0-)

    is the other good thing that came out of Occupy. We would never have seen protests in Albuquerque recently if not for Occupy. Police brutality is part of the issue, it is not unconnected to inequality and other economic problems, it is part and parcel.

      BUT the message that appealed to the public was that they too were part of the 99% even though they were never beaten by a cop.

      A good protest has the ability to get a majority of the public to empathize with them and I think the 99% message did that.
