Who Are the People in Occupy Santa Cruz?

Here are some of the faces and voices of the Occupy Santa Cruz movement.

They are working together to stage a local version of the Occupy Wall Street protest.

Wonder who they are? What they want? Why they are sleeping out in the cold and marching in the daytime?

Here are some of their answers.

Bravo for what you are doing!!! People should rule, not corporations!

This is a great way to personalize the Occupation movement. So much of the print media seems intent on trivializing it but in this display of strong photos and smart captions you provide a feature that print can't begin to match.

Yep, I agree with Malcolm, let the people tell their own stories, not the description of what the revolutionaries look like that stops there. Behind each picture is a story that when told explains everything. Stuff like love, life and loss. Good work Patrick Evans on hearing when folks have to say. The photos do the people great justice as well. Your loving and proud father, Don Evans

Thanks Patrick - you caught what I wanted to say. You interviewed me while I was marching, great job. Thanks for telling it well. Banks enjoyed a 66% profit increase in the 1st quarter of 2011. $27 billion in 3 months. The elite are 7% away from owning 100% of US financial wealth. We are all divided by how we feel about those facts - and even those who bring them. Still, they are. Many feel they deserve it. Do we deserve the economic meltdown we got? They had a saying on Wall Street when they were blowing up the economy on junk loans; IBGYBG. "I'll be gone, you'll be gone". We'll be on the beach with a martini when America blows up. No where for us to go.

Awesome profiles of these people! Really got a sense that even though they are in different phases of life, and of different backgrounds, we are all in this together. Loved the photos too!
