Occupy small town America: Why they’re protesting
Program length – 2:56
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.”
