Protests in New York are focusing on some political problems that are thought to be responsible–among other things–for greater income disparities in the US.

In its declaration, the three-week-old protest group comes out four-square against foreclosures, executive bonuses, workplace discrimination, politicians beholden to lobbyists, monopoly agriculture, and the sale of personal privacy data. It decries everything from colonialism to “faulty bookkeeping.”

Referred to as Occupy Wall Street, these protests seem long overdue and–unlike some other political movements, like the Tea Party–these focus on issues that really matter both to the economy and a political system that many see as not being representative of anyone but the super-rich.
