Occupy Spokane Spotlights Cause

A man who calls himself Ziggy (pictured in Tyler Tjomsland photo) leans against his bumper-stickered Dodge Stratus sedan, anchoring a stage light between his body and the roof of the car. He gazes up at the light’s path and tries to steady the equipment as the words “OCCUPY SPOKANE” in white lettering dance across the top of the Wells Fargo Center in downtown Spokane. With a portable generator supplying power, Ziggy and a handful of other Occupy Spokane members linger on the sidewalk below, discussing politics and waving to people – and uninterested law enforcement – who happen to drive or walk by. The demonstration is one of a growing trend of light displays used by activists around the country. Training camps are available to teach the use of the equipment and the best strategies to reach the largest audience/Jennifer Pignolet, SR. More here.

Question: What will be the legacy of the Occupy movement?
