Colin Powell weighed in on the Occupy movements taking place across the world. The Former Secretary of State said that demonstrations like OWS are as “American as apple pie.”
Powell is riding with the 99 percenters saying:
“Demonstrating like this is as American as apple pie. We’ve been marching up and down and demonstrating throughout our history. So what you’re seeing with Occupy Wall Street and others is people who are unhappy, and they’re directing their unhappiness right now toward Wall Street and toward others they think are doing too well in our society.”
“There’s increasing gap between those who are doing very, very well, and I’m doing well, and those who are not doing as well, and those who are not doing as well are not seeing their lives improve. So there’s frustration, there’s angriness there,”
Well said by Colin Powell adding his voice to the movement is very valuable.
