Filmmaker Jessica Vecchione visited the Occupy Delhi protest at Courthouse Square in Delhi on Saturday, October 29. She took the film above, which features many among the small group of protesters speaking about why they're allying themselves with the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Though Delhi is a college town, home to a 3,100-student SUNY campus, most of the faces in the Occupy Delhi video are those of older local residents.
Around the 1:45 mark, Andes resident Bill Piervincenzi explains why he's occupying Delhi:
"Students who can't pay their loans, veterans who can't get a job, homeowners who are losing the value of their homes, the callousness of people making policy, corruption because of money in the election process. There's just so many things, and maybe the cumulative effect of all of them is what's making me stand here today in the cold."
Mother Jones Magazine is keeping a live, updated map of Occupy protests and arrests, both large and small, from around the world. So far, they have details on over 450 protests and over 2,000 arrests.
