Interviewed by "Democracy Now!" at the site of the increasingly unruly demonstrations around Wall Street, Piven said:
I am here because I am so enthusiastic about the possibilities of this sit-in, over the marches that are occurring over postal worker issues, the sister demonstrations that are starting in Chicago and Los Angeles, and maybe in Boston. I think we desperately need a popular uprising in the United States. None of us know. I study movements. None of us know the exact formula for when those movements erupt, but it could be. And if that is true, then these people who are here are really wonderful. I would do anything to help them.In the good old days, Piven would already be in prison with her fellow traitors where she belongs.
