"'A moment like this only comes along every generation or so. The Civil Rights Movement lasted for a decade. If this is going to last a decade, the first step is going to be lasting through the winter.' The Occupy protesters have been ridiculed by the press, celebrated by the left, and reviled by the right -- but rarely allowed to speak for themselves. ... In late October, In These Times held a conference call with protesters around the country, hoping to illuminate their intentions, ideals and ultimate goals."
