Despite forecast of a freezing, rainy afternoon, members of Occupy Wall St. movement pushed through with their planned protest rally yesterday (Feb. 29), never backing off an inch in their desire to change and end the culture of corruption that has become so prevalent in corporate America. Bryant Park was the scene of simultaneous activities as discussion groups tackled more pressing issues; theater/dance performers collaborated to adapt guerilla tactics in case NYPD won't let them 'do their thing' on 42nd St. In his brief lecture, award-winning journalist/author Matt Taibbi tried his best to illustrate in layman's language, how corprate giants have used deception and misinformation to amass more profits; discussed other ills of society that has enslaved and affected the lives and livelihood of those 99%. The protest actions yesterday was a big "leap" for a movement that knew no boundaries; whose ideas and goals have crossed the seas, hoping ultimately to uplift the living conditions of everyone who have long suffered in misery. The arrest of some participants never deterred the street theater performers from giving their best act, even the rain failed to dampen their spirits.
