Occupy Wall Street
I have no idea where my food comes from, but I hope it’s shipped by rail from a California factory farm.
Don’t get me wrong—I’m an environmentalist, not an agribusiness executive. But I’m an environmentalist who can do math, and the numbers on locavorism, like much else in green-urbanist food ideology, don’t add up.
LIKE THE PROTESTORS OF OCCUPY WALL STREET, they don’t find themselves in the Financial District as much as those who live there, or those working there on a daily basis, at least before this all started. Unlike the Occupy Wall Street protesters, they knew where Zuccotti Park was before all this started. Lined up on the southern side of park, on Cedar Street between Broadway and Trinity Place, one of the Financial District’s two sparse farmers’ markets have a new scenery in front of them to take in.
