Occupy Wall Street Protest with Frances Fox Piven and Russell Simmons

Occupy Wall Street Protest with Frances Fox Piven and Russell Simmons

Two top ten percenters speak at Occupy Wall Street? One has a pre-paid bank card, Russell Simmons and he gets called out on it. :)

Background on Frances Fox Piven:
Piven was married to her long-time collaborator Richard Cloward until his death in 2001.[1] Together with Cloward, she wrote an article in the May 1966 issue of The Nation titled "The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty" advocating increased enrollment in social welfare programs in order to collapse that system and force reforms, leading to a guaranteed annual income.[5][6] This political strategy has been referred to as the "Cloward–Piven strategy".[7] During 2006/07 Piven served as the President of the American Sociological Association.[8]
