Final Note

Occupy movement hits World Economic Forum

Kai Ryssdal Jan 24, 2012

This final note today, picking up where Mitchell left off with the Arab Spring and — more to the point — Occupy Wall Street.

The World Economic Forum starts tomorrow in Davos, Switzerland — 2,200 or so of the planet’s top 1 percent will be there meeting and greeting.

They will be met by members of the 99 percent. Occupy Davos is in full swing. They’re camped out in a parking lot — in igloos. Two people per. Takes about five hours to build.
