Note From an Occupier

I have been part of the Occupy Buffalo movement since October 17. One of the features that fascinates me is the cordial relationship we enjoy with the Buffalo Police and Fire Departments, Erie County Sheriff’s Office, the media, and City Hall, in contrast to the constant clashes reported in Oakland, Chicago, Atlanta, or even nearby Rochester. We are a peaceful movement, seeking to alter people’s perceptions and illusions about the broken American Dream, alert them to the fact that the 99 percent of us pay taxes whereas the very rich (known as the one percenters) squirrel their money away into tax shelters.
