Occupy Wall Street reaches NU

On Sept. 17, the Occupy Wall Street protests began and have since grown to thousands of people participating, hundreds living in New York City’s Zuccotti Park, and hundreds more being arrested. This growing movement has spurred similar protests in cities across the world. As such, Dr. Doug Tewksbury, along with Dr. David Reilly, Dr. Alexander Bertland and Dr. Edward Hutton, professors of communication studies, political science, philosophy and finance, respectively, have organized a discussion panel about the movement. The discussion was held Wednesday, Nov. 2, Tewksbury was recently in New York City and was able to see the protesters first hand. The photos for this album were taken by Tewksbury.
