Tracing the Roots of #OccupyWallStreet | iCrossing Digital Marketing Blog, Search Engine Advertising Blog: iCrossingOct. 12, 2011 | by Stan Pugsley Occupy Wall Street certainly has emotional roots in the wreckage of the financial meltdown of 2008, and it has philosophical roots in Tahrir Square and other recent uprisings around the world.

That colourful assault on the money culture took place 40 years ago on August 24, 1967.
