Map: Occupy Wall Street, a global movement

Explore MoJo’s interactive map of the anti-Wall Street protests that unfolded worldwide in fall 2011.


The loose-knit protest movement known as Occupy Wall Street has stirred action from New York City to LA and spread overseas. Here we present an expanding map of protest hot spots and reported arrests, and track the movement’s growth. Check back often for updates—and check out all the rest of MoJo‘s #OWS coverage here.

Protests taking place beyond Manhattan:

What began as a call for Americans to gather in New York’s Financial District has given rise to like-minded actions nationwide and far beyond. Click on the dots for details from more than 462 locations and over 3,200 arrests (last updated: November 20, 9:30 p.m. PST):

A huge share of the nation’s economic growth over the past 30 years has gone to the top one-hundredth of one percent, who now make an average of $27 million per household. The average income for the bottom 90 percent of us? $31,244. See all of Mother Jones‘ inequality charts here.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
