Wall Street "Crime Scene, Do Not Cross" (photos #TakeWallStreet #OccupyWallStreet 09/17/2011)

I am right now in New York for a jazz trip but when I heard about the movement #TakeWallStreet and #OccupyWallStreet, I took my photo bag in order to covering what is certainly the beginning of the US  "indignados".

All the financial district around Wall Street had been closed by thousands of police officers. Those were  much more than the pacific protesters without apparent leader but these were stronger, these ARE stronger. Yes, I'm convinced that People have the Power, that they have always the last word.

Here you have my photographic coverage of these first protest, it was the 17th of September 2011, and now.. they camp.

Its happening, an end to lies and like 911 a pretext for war 917 I hope is the pretext to peace ... again I thank you. Barely any media coverage ..haha like I expected any ..its all on we the 99%
