Occupy Boston started in Dewey Square on September 30, 2011. It was directly inspired by, and we stand in solidarity with, our brothers and sisters at Occupy Wall Street in New York City. The continued occupation of Dewey Square—located outside of South Station in the heart of Boston’s Financial District—is one of more than 120 Occupy encampments in cities across the nation and is a symbol for people everywhere who support real and lasting change. While these different occupations share many goals and attitudes, they each operate independently, and there is no national organization that can speak for all occupations.
