From Sept 15-17th Occupy Wall Street gathered in lower Manhattan to commemorate one full year of actions. The three days were broken up into a day of education, a day of celebration, and a day of liberation.

Occupy Wall Street participants used the anniversary to show that they are still active, organizing actions everyday all across the city. Those in attendance made clear that their movement is far from over.
