Occupy Caravan Demonstrates Across America (Photos)

See photos from Alessandro Cosmelli’s photos of the Occupy Caravan.

On June 11, 2012, photographer Alessandro Cosmelli departed from San Francisco with the Occupy Caravan and spent three weeks traveling across America with the members of the Occupy movement. They stopped in more than 15 major cities, where Occupy chapters organized demonstrations and events with the visiting caravan. Cosmelli's beautiful photographs not only offer a deep look inside the Occupy movement, but also provide an intimate portrait of America today.
