Video: Jackson Browne Says Occupy Movement Could Have "Real Effect"

| by Michael Allen

Speaking to Current TV’s news host Keith Olbermann on Thursday night (video below), musician Jackson Browne said he wouldn’t have guessed that the small Occupy protest in New York City would become so influential.

“But the fact that it’s sprung up in so many places, and it has such a resonance with the Arab Spring and with demonstrations with other parts of the world. I used to think, when all of France was shut down by unionists and students, 'why can’t that happen in the United States?' But I think that it is possible this will have a real effect on our electoral politics.”
