For thousands of people across the country this week marks a time of protest training dubbed the “99% Spring.”
With a goal of amassing 100,000 participants nationwide, the weeklong
series of educational seminars will take place in living rooms, church
basements, and online.
Similar to the motives behind the Occupy Wall Street
movement, organizers say this week’s focus will be on educating people about how
to set up and carry out non-violent protests targeting income
disparity, home foreclosures, and unemployment issues.
