Bill Clinton’s Advice For Occupy Wall Street
Bill Clinton tells USA Today the OWS protesters need a message and a direction.
“They have an amorphous set of resentments for which I sympathize,” he says. “I don’t think Americans can continue this level of income inequality.”
But the protesters need an agenda, he says. “They need to have some idea of what they want the country to do. If I were in their position, I would invite politicians down to talk to them. I’d invite (New York) Gov. (Andrew) Cuomo down to talk to me. I’d invite the mayor down to talk to me in New York.”
He likened their challenge to that faced by Arab Spring protesters in Tunisia and Egypt who brought down authoritarian governments but now need to connect with established networks.Click here for reuse options!
