I found this blog to be quite beneficial to my research. After my meeting this morning, I decided I would look more closely into the “occupy movement” …but I want to make sure I am learning about the movement across the globe. While we may be aware of the protests occurring throughout New York City, social movements have spread in over 1500 cities. Clearly, the occupy movement extends far beyond America, and at a rapid speed. It is truly incredible how quickly news can spread. I found this blog to be a great overview of the occupy concept and the major geographic areas of the most prominent protests.
