Abstract: In September 2011 demonstrators occupied Wall Street in New York. Inspired by the Arab Spring and the Spanish 15 May movement they protested against economic inequality and greed in the financial sector. In October 2011, Occupy protests also arose at several locations in the Netherlands, inspired by Occupy Wall Street. What is new about the Occupy movement? What do the Dutch think about the Occupy movement? Do people feel sympathy towards this movement? And is there support for the points of view of the Occupy movement? NCDO studied, in collaboration with TNS/NIPO, what the Dutch think of the Occupy movement, the financial sector in general and the division of welfare in the world.
