The Occupy Wall Street movement, once focused on financial institutions and the unequal distribution of wealth, has broadened to include the collapse of the housing market and its effect on the American family, according to an article in the Los Angeles Times.
Demonstrations were staged at foreclosed homes in at least two dozen states, and protestors have moved from downtown civic plazas to suburban subdivisions.
