The Youth is Starting to Change, Together

Posted on by

MEDIA ROOTS- This inspiring video shows a small aspect of the collective activism happening within the Occupy Wall Street movement. It is a compilation of footage from day 14 of NYC’s Occupy Wall Street protest, where 700 people got arrested as thousands marched from Liberty Plaza to occupy the Brooklyn Bridge.

Music “The Youth” – MGMT

This is a call of arms to live and love and sleep together
We could flood the streets with love or light or heat whatever
Lock the parents out, cut a rug, twist and shout
Wave your hands
Make it rain
For stars will rise again

The youth is starting to change
Are you starting to change?
Are you?
Together

In a couple of years
Tides have turned from booze to tears
And in spite of the weather
We could learn to make it together

The youth is starting to change
Are you starting to change?
Are you?
Together
