The Occupy Wall Street movement is largely credited for reframing the national dialogue on economic inequality and popularizing the phrase: "We are the 99 percent." We host a roundtable with Frances Fox Piven, an author and professor at City University of New York who has studied social movements for decades; Nathan Schneider, editor of the blog Waging Nonviolence, which has extensively covered the Occupy movement; and Suzanne Collado, an organizer with Occupy Wall Street since its inception and member of the group "Strike Debt," an effort to organize a mass upsurge of debt resistance.
