This award-winning film documents how private money in politics has undermined democracy and transferred income from 99% of Americans to multinational corporations and the wealthy. Through personal stories, the film highlights how the 99% sparked Occupy Wall Street into a global movement.
Narrated by Lou Reed, The 99%: Occupy Everywhere features Russell Simmons, Jeffrey Sachs and a diverse cross section of Americans to reveal how critical issues — such as vast income inequality, jobs, debt, the environment, gun safety, access to affordable health care and education — as well as a lack of accountability from banks that committed massive financial fraud can be addressed through fair taxation, prosecuting criminal bankers and reducing corporate influence over the democratic process: by removing money from politics. The film also highlights the necessity of peaceful protest, the coordinated police actions against Occupy and how the movement continues to resonate across the world.
