Video: Alec Baldwin Visits Occupy Wall Street

| by Michael Allen

Alec Baldwin was the latest celebrity to visit the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York, and he urged them to find some goals (video below).

“OWS needs to coalesce around some legislative policy. The ‘occupy’ strategy may be an effective one. But what can each entity agree on?” Baldwin asked on his popular Twitter page, after his two-hour visit in downtown Manhattan.

“If OWS sparks calls 4 #campaignfinancereform, that would be 1 measure of success,” Baldwin added, referring to the push to reform the financing of multi-million-dollar election campaigns.

Baldwin however clashed with 'We Are Change' activists who had asked him to denounce the US central bank, the Federal Reserve.
