When the Occupy Wall Street protest began on Sept. 17, it was a "leaderless resistance movement" of a few hundred people without clear demands. Exactly a month later, thousands had joined the movement and hundreds had taken over Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan. On the one-month anniversary of the protest's inception, a team of reporters from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism took a look at the many facets of the demonstrators' fully-functioning society, which includes a medical center, clean-up crew—which helped the protesters avoid eviction last week—and, like all great civilizations, even a library.
