Imagine when the Occupy Wall Street movement gets untracked? It’s just a matter of time when the tipping point happens. Occupy Wall Street in Wyoming is evidence that the tipping point is near. This site won’t be updated much, but will serve as a resource about Wyoming-based OWS efforts to the outside world. Dynamic info will be a result of locally-maintained facebook pages, groups and local websites.
Why is Wyoming important? The movement in Wyoming is unique and demonstrates the ubiquity of its appeal when considering the Equality State is the least populated – 565,000 people. It has only two cities over 50,000 – Casper and Cheyenne and dominated by the Republican Party – State legislature 76 GOP; 14 DEM.
Wyoming Community Media (WCM) is putting this information together with an eye on documenting the Occupy Wall Street movement in Wyoming. Wyoming should be an Occupy movement bell weather state. If the movement gains traction in a conservative stronghold, it will be clear the message is cross cutting.
This is one of many unofficial online resources for the growing occupation movement happening around Wyoming and the world. Here’s what the official unofficial Occupy Wall Street website has to say:
“Occupy Wall Street is a people-powered movement that began on September 17, 2011 in Liberty Square in Manhattan’s Financial District, and has spread to over 100 cities in the United States and actions in over 1,500 cities globally. OWS is fighting back against the corrosive power of major banks and multinational corporations over the democratic process, and the role of Wall Street in creating an economic collapse that has caused the greatest recession in generations . . .The occupations around the world are being organized using a non-binding consensus based collective decision making tool known as a “people’s assembly”.
