It’s Not Okay, Anymore

For nearly three weeks protesters from Occupy Wall Street have been marching and demanding that American government support education, infrastructure and jobs, get rid of corporate tax loopholes and strengthen democracy. 

Thousands of protesters — including students, union members, parents and teachers — marched in lower Manhattan Wednesday in the biggest show of support yet to Occupy Wall Street. What was once a regional movement has grown nationwide and even received an acknowledgment from President Obama during a news conference on his jobs bill.

BET.com went straight to the people to hear their thoughts and, in the following pages, show you what they had to say.
