The Occupy Movement, and protests of that nature did not originate in the US on Wall Street. It was probably one of the more covered by the media, being where it is, but various other nations have been doing it for a while. The first of these, is Spain. The Spanish Indignados movement started sometime in May 2011. By the end of the month, there were hundreds of camps in Madrid and elsewhere. By the time I went to Spain around June, Some of them had begun to die out. In small town like Burgos, the protests were dying down faster than the big cities. The above shot is from the town square, where there is just few camps left, with very few people. This long guy playing the drums are one of few that are actually active in some way, but in the end looks sort of demotivated.
