While America's airwaves, television screens and front pages have been duly preoccupied with massive street demonstrations and revolutions in the Middle East, the American people have been busy with their own protests.
One of the biggest nationwide protests in American history since the days of the Vietnam War is now taking place in America. To learn more about the movement and its players, New America Now Host Shirin Sadeghi spoke with Bert Cannavelli -- the organizer of OccupyThe Nation.com.
