Re: ‘Occupy’ movement is just another squat, Nov. 8.

Yes, I do agree with columnist Tom Fletcher that we have numerous social problems in our society with the haves and have-nots, but he appears to be out of touch with the overall goals of the ‘occupy’ movement.

People are demonstrating throughout the world against those they feel helped to widen the gap between the most wealthy and the rest of us. They blame the banks, corporations, government and media as the most powerful players leading to this shift over the last 30 years.

The message is loud and clear. We are not going to take it anymore.
