From Sept 15-17th Occupy Wall Street gathered in lower Manhattan to commemorate one full year of actions. The three days where broken up into a day of education, a day of celebration, and a day of liberation.
Occupy Wall Street participants used the anniversary to show that they are still active, organizing actions everyday all across the city. This is a short documentary which highlights some of Occupy Wall Street's recent accomplishments, its broader influence, and where it is headed.
One year ago a small group of predominantly Anarchists sparked a horizontally organized movement to level the playing field in the game of Corporations -vs- The People of the United States. Today we celebrated our success and contemplated our future. We licked old wounds and created new ones. We turned a critical eye to the process that has guided us and acknowledged it's short comings so that our second year of existence will be one of effectiveness even if it means dropping the verb. To Occupy.
500 or more Occupy revelers march from Washington Square Park to their former home in Zucotti to kick off the Occupied Anniversary Party. 26 were arrested mostly through snatch and grab terrorist tactics. Those arrested had done nothing wrong, were walking peacefully on the sidewalk with their friends. Squads of terrorists pushed through the peaceful crowd to man handle and steal people.

The Occupy Austin movement took to the streets Saturday 10/15/2011. Starting at 12:00 p.m., demonstrators marched from City Hall, through Downtown, to the State Capitol. On the way, the occupiers made a stop at Chase Bank at Sixth Street and Lavaca Street to withdraw their money and close their accounts. "I closed my bank account because I'm sick of the CEO's of large corporations like J.P. Morgan Chase reaping the benefits and passing the buck onto us," protester Jonathan Marmon said. Last Friday, the second day of the now 10-day demonstration, activists marched from City Hall to Bank of America for the same purpose. Ihor Gowda has participated in the Occupy Austin movement since it started on Oct. 6. "For the last few years I have felt corporate money influencing the political process is something that needs to change in the country," he said. Saturday’s march coincided with an international movement against corporate greed and the role of corporations in government. In Frankfurt, Germany, some 5,000 people took to the streets to protest in front of the European Central Bank. Thousands marched through the Bosnian city of Sarajevo carrying pictures of Che Guevara and old communist flags that read "Death to capitalism, freedom to the people.” Thousands of people also joined peaceful protests in Sydney, Tokyo, Manila, Hong Kong and Seoul.
