With complaints about the level of disorganization, lack of leadership and no real agenda at hand, the misinformation about Occupy Wall Street is quite rampant on social media. Chase Night, of Unbridled Existence, wants to put an end to the rumours and share some of the facts.

There is a lot of misinformation circulating about the purpose of Occupy Wall Street. This is my attempt to dispel some of the most commonly issued rumors regarding the reasons behind these demonstrations and the sincerity of the people involved in them. These are all actual complaints I have seen either on Twitter or on the news.

The above image is from the We Are the 99% Tumblr Blog, a place where the people who are occupying Wall Street explain why they're there.
