Chris Hedges Shares His Thoughts on Occupy Wall Street

Chris Hedges took time on Thursday to speak with Alyona Minkovski from the Washington, D.C., bureau of Russian news network RT about his thoughts on the growing Occupy Wall Street movement.

Standing among protesters from the Occupy D.C. protest, Hedges spoke out about what is fueling the Occupy Wall Street movement and where he thinks it is going; about President Obama’s culpability as a politician facing the mess Wall Street has made; and about how, even though the media have taken to comparing Occupy Wall Street to other American political movements past and present, it is unique and of the times.
