Occupy Wall Street is finally getting the attention of mainstream media. Now even celebrities are chiming in to show support for the Occupy Wall street movement that is spreading to cities all over the United States.
Today, George Clooney was asked today what he thought of Occupy Wall street movement. Clooney said, “It seems like a good idea.” Clooney is very interested to learn more about the grassroots movement.
Actor Mark Ruffalo shared his experiences after recently spending time at the Occupy Wall street protest in New York in an article called “We are the 99 per cent Occupy Wall Street is a peaceful stand against the big American rip-off. Support it and regain your dignity” on the Guardian UK website.
Ruffalo said “When people critique this movement and say spurious things about the protesters' clothes or their jobs or the general way they look, they are showing how shallow we have become as a nation. They forget that these people have taken time out of their lives to stand up for values that are purely American and in the interest of our democracy. They forget that these people are encamped in an urban park, where they are not allowed to have tents or other normal camping gear. They are living far outside their comfort zone to protect and celebrate liberty, equality and the rule of law.” You can read the complete article, here.
Rosanne Barr and Susan Sarandon have also showed their support for the Occupy Wall street movement.
