Protest on Wall Street: Robert James Carlson, 25, Jersey City, N.J., finance

At first it seemed more like a gathering of street performers than a political movement. A few hundred protesters briefly tied up Wall Street on the weekend of Sept. 17, some wearing face paint and many holding homemade signs. The focus of their anger was free-floating: the bank bailout, income inequality, student debt, corporations in general. But they were onto something, and in weeks since the Occupy Wall Street movement has spread to San Francisco, Philadelphia, Dallas, Washington, and elsewhere. A New York rally on Oct. 5 included members of several big unions. Here's a look at some of those who were at the Occupy Wall Street protest in Zuccatti Park in New York three weeks after it started.

Robert Carlson said, "We have some very serious economic issues and the situation is not sustainable."
