VIDEO: Occupy Wall Street Protesters Answer Question "Why Are You Here?"

As the protests, marches, teach-ins, communal meals, and exercises in direct democracy down in New York's Liberty Plaza continue into their third week and inspire support and similar movements around the country, documentary filmmaker Michael Galinsky visited the occupation October 2 to ask protesters the simple question that the mainstream media seems to be having a hard time with: Why are you here?

He shared his video with AlterNet, and we hope you enjoy this glimpse inside the goings-on that are inspiring so much conversation.
