The mixed messages of the Occupy Wall Street movement have left many Americans confused about what it really is they are trying to accomplish. Their vague messages include rants against corporate greed and pleas student loan forgiveness. But all their messages have one thing in common: they represent a far left wing agenda.
With protests set up in nearly every major city in America, Heritage Foundation experts have decided to create and share a guide on how to deal with these protests. We have asked our experts to weigh in on demands of the movement.
As Heritage investigative reporter Lachlan Markay puts it, the guide is “not as a response to a concrete political platform, but rather [a] part of a dialogue between the largely left-wing individuals ‘occupying’ cities nationwide, and the conservative movement.”
Here is the list of “occupier” demands as summarized by Markay on The Foundry. Click on each to jump right to the Heritage response.
