Annabel Park comments at the ongoing protests at Wall Street, whilst being a speaker at the ALTER-EU annual assembly, which discussed how corporate influence on public decision-making can be curbed.


Ms. Park says she's seen synergy between her group - the Coffee Party - and Occupy Wall Street, which has spawned a range of nationwide demonstrations since protesters set up camp in Manhattan's Zuccotti Park on Sept. 17. Some Coffee Party followers have joined in Occupy rallies. And Park says she's seen a rise in public support for her own group over the past month.
