For a so-called rag-tag group of disorganized hippies without demands and no chance in hell of gaining momentum, the Occupy Wall Street protesters have once again defied all odds and after garnering the support of some major NYC unions, can now count the friendly folks at Ben and Jerry’s amongst their supporters.
The ice cream producers issued a statement on their website expressing their solidarity with the movement. From their board of directors:
We know the media will either ignore you or frame the issue as to who may be getting pepper sprayed rather than addressing the despair and hardships borne by so many, or accurately conveying what this movement is about. All this goes on while corporate profits continue to soar and millionaires whine about paying a bit more in taxes. And we have not even mentioned the environment.
