Turnoff or Turn-on? The Occupy Protests

By Josh Feit November 9, 2011

In order for the Occupy Wall Street protests to have an impact, they've got to connect with the people they say they represent—everyday people who are struggling to make ends meet.

Are they? We asked two unemployed Seattleites—a US Army veteran and a local writer—presumably members of the protesters' target audience, if the signs, civil disobedience, tents, and messages at Westlake and Seattle Central Community College were inspiring them or turning them off.

One said yes, one said no.
