"While We Watch" premiere

Thurs., Jan.12, The Paley Center for Media, New York

Alan Capper, Pres., FPA New York led a panel of OWS participants on the merits of their 2-month siege of Zuccotti Park in NYC. A lively Q&A added to the premiere of this 1-hour
documentary directed by Kevin Breslin
Discussions were largely on the net results of the encampment which proved mixed based on the emotions of those attending. Seeking opportunities in a dire economy was the central theme here while Corporate America and the Obama administration were the prime targets. At most the occupation was strategic in ensuring a consciousness on the problems facing today’s youth in securing gainful employment and a “sharing of the wealth” with business and industry in this country.The issue, of course, is ongoing as it is presently manifest in a multiple of cities in the U.S. and in major cities abroad.
Mr. Capper noted that the press and media were particularly sensitive to the NYC face-off. For this writer it stirred the interest of many and in fact enabled numerous politicians to comment while forcing our business leaders and governing bodies to reply. To date, however, these have been in short order in the form of “what can be done.” The issue is heavily under consideration and is,for sure, a template of actions to come by those of us who are most concerned.

The FPA/ Foreign Press Association is a not-for-profit global organization made up of leading journalists actively addressing today’s major issues. The New York chapter under whose auspices this event was organized is one of many planned for 2012.
