Add to EJ Playlist I was curious to see how this event would play out, so I shot from 8pm to 10pm on September 17 at the General Assembly in Zuccotti Park. I was touched by the sense of community, and impressed by the level of cooperation and discipline among the occupiers.
The police presence was large, but they seemed to be under orders not to escalate conflict. Both sides were respectful and non-confrontati onal.
This is a group of passionate, concerned, and intelligent people. Their behavior in the park suggested a great appreciation of democracy, and a desire to cut through the clogged media and political channels to communicate a message they feel is incredibly important.
This video contains nearly five minutes of raw slow-motion clips that celebrate and document the faces and feelings of September 17.
I wanted to get this out within 24 hours of the shoot. Anyone who knows me will understand what a monumental power of will it took for me to leave this largely unedited. :)
I hope you enjoy it.
Song is "The Healer avec Modlee (Badu remix)"

We are Anonymous.
On September the 17th, we called for a peaceful protest to occupy wallstreet, and we delivered.
We witnessed the streets of New York flood with protesters in the thousands and twitter feeds explode with occupy wall street hash tags.
We have marched with one goal in mind, to be heard.
We the people, Anonymous, will no longer stand idly while money and greed corrupt this country.
We are united by one, and divided by zero, and this is only the beginning.
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Wall street, you should have expected us.
