The Leaderless Movement of Occupy Wall Street in the United States

Occupy Wall Street has come back. The news about it has been massively been spread all over the social media networks. The occupation of Wall Street has been able to become a national issue. Lots of people pay attention to this movement even the president, celebrities and also street vendors. The controversy is made by one and only, the leaderless movement of Occupy Wall Street.

Who are They?
You must be curious about the movements done by these people under Occupy Wall Street. Due to its popularity, the video game on the Occupy has been developed. There also has been a talk about the movement, that is, to occupy the world. To know about who these people are and what they are demanding so far, you need to understand what the movement is.

As mentioned by the activists of the Occupy, this movement has set a clear concept. It is a leaderless movement with no authoritative set of demands. They don’t set any projected outcomes, talking heads, or bottom lines. The members of the Occupy are all the leaders. The statement that we are all leaders have been able to give the clear praxis as well as the clear history on the movement.

The Movements

The Movements
In 1960s and also in 70s, the movement has held a meeting on the focus on the feminism where there has been an issue on several forms of women oppression in private. Women were tired of being excluded from the inner circles of the leaderships. They have then focused on the issue of the gender equality in the formal leadership.

The awareness has also been raised in relation with the gay right. The movement has been able to empower the gay women and men to fight for the rights and also to get rid of the degraded life of the sexual privacy.

These two movements have been able to bring significant impacts to the American lives. The feminism has changed how we look at each other whether we are men or women. The gay rights have been able to free our sexuality. All these impacts have nothing to do with the centralized leadership.

In this movement, there are no leaders with long standing delegates as each of them is the leader. The Occupy operates in simple way, the members are being unified with one powerful goal, that is, all of them don’t tolerate the corruption and the greed.

Therefore, the leaderless movement of Occupy Wall Street will keep on fighting the unjust that happens in Wall Street.

The Irony and Influence of Occupy Wall Street

This year marks the 7th anniversary of this Wall Street social and economic movement. Occupy Wall Street or OWS was born in 2011 while US was under financial crisis. This movement has brought serious discussion to table. With the anniversary, US citizens start to look at how this movement has become.

The Influence of OWS
Bringing up many critical issues like inequality in salary, job vacancies, and many other social and economic issues, OWS has spread some progressive and positive energy to the society. This energy is very welcoming, very intoxicating for people’s emotional side, and organically grassroots.

The influence is very positive as well. It encourages people to voice what is unheard before. As an effect, these issues are on the table of discussions on the highest level of the country. The win of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shares the same theme of this movement. From this side, we find positive effects from this movement.

The Irony of OWS

The Irony of OWS
Everyone needs to agree that this movement voice out issues like money out of politics and income inequality. Yet, this movement has flaws. Despite its positive influence, OWS doesn’t have an organization to manage the movement and to direct it better. It is also lack of hierarchy which makes this movement weaker.

Without making specific demand during the protest, OWS doesn’t perform ultimately as they are potentially be. It doesn’t make the system changes fast and big enough. Of course, it is something they can fix, and these flaws aren’t failures.

OWS held an anniversary event in September 17 this year in Zucotti Park. For the last seven years, this movement inspired other social and economic movements, and brought positive impact to the people. Yet, if they don’t fix the irony, it is just a matter of time before this movement remains a history.

OWS is Continued

Have you ever heard OWS? This is a mass protest that cries about the economic condition in the US. This protest began in 2011 and actually, OWL is continued even up to now. They still protest the same thing, the uneven condition in the US.

• The Clash between the Mass and the Police
Actually, the mass just wanted a peaceful protest by camped near Wall Street and one block away from World Trade Centre. They only come with posters and perform a kind of art performance in order to attract other people’s attention and join them. However, the police wrongly saw this as a disturbance.

Then, several people were caught and jailed for a certain period of time. This gave a big deep scar for many people who join the mass. However, this didn’t stop them to continue the Occupy Wall Street movement.

• Citizen Expressions of Many Oppression in the US
Year by year, OWS becomes the chance for the US citizens to perform their expressions about any issues in the US. Besides of economy and social issues, they also speak out the black oppressions since there are so many coloured people join the mass.

This movement has been the language of US citizens in order to convey the protest. They have a long march and even camp. They also stand in the front of the police barricade and give the same strong message that they want democracy, the real one, back in the US. They hope that they will not only get their right to have an even economic condition but also their right to live equally without seeing the colours or backgrounds.

This act is really catching the world’s attention and that is why OWL is continued. They want to be heard by the government. Although some of them already experienced the bad things from this protest, they still go forward and shout “We are the 99%”.
