Nationwide Protests Continue

This map, from Mother Jones, shows protests across the country.

For over two weeks protesters have gathered on Wall Street in New York City. This movement, catalyzed by a sluggish economy, income inequality, and corporate greed has spread nationally and internationally. The protests have included mass arrests on the Brooklyn Bridge, questionable use of force by police, as well as people sharing personal stories of  why they are upset. The map above, created by Mother Jones, uses Google Maps to show protests across the United States.
