Background Reading on Occupy Wall Street

Below is a basic reading list of sorts – to describe and outline the movement, to help people get up to speed, to help aggregate good solid coverage into a foundation – sites for following development, specific journalism, prominent voices, and miscellany.

We will be adding to this foundation in the coming days, and in perpetuity while the occupation persists.

This is just a start… please take a look.
