Occupy Wall Street: “I Will Leave When…”


We asked protesters what it would take for them to leave Zuccotti Park…

There is no set end date for Occupy Wall Street. Protesters have been in the park for 24 days and counting, and many feel that they will be there for longer. The goals of OWS are as diffuse as its participants—bank regulation, dissolve of the Federal Reserve, more rights for the middle class. Demands have been made and manifestos issued, but the occupation continues regardless. The Brooklyn Ink wanted to see what the individual protesters wanted for their hours and days spent at Zuccotti Park, so Jonathan Tayler and Xin Hui Lim asked them one question: What would it take to get you to leave? We then asked them to share their answer on a whiteboard in their own words. Here’s what they said.

    A couple of those pics leave me wondering: how are these people supposed to get a “great” job offer if they’re chanting and protesting all day?

    I think about 2 of those people are ACTUALLY informed and belong there. The rest are completely misinformed, confused, or have nothing better to do. Or they’re communists. In any case this protest should not be allowed to escalate. If these people get their way, we will have chaos. Our standard of living will SERIOUSLY be reduced. Wake up America.
