Occupy Boston March, 10/10/11 

It's no use trying to define the kind of person coming to the Occupy movement that got its start on Wall Street and has spread across the U.S. It's everybody, well, at least 99 percent of everybody. Meet some of them here, one at a time.

They are the young and the old, the aspiring professional, the determined activist, the frustrated, the employed and unemployed, the should-be-retired. There is no one face for the occupation movement that was sparked on Wall Street and has spread across the U.S. Rather, they are all kinds of Americans, sometimes with nothing in common but a belief that they can make things change. This series will present just one at a time, up close.
