I'm just a little confused about what exactly the desires or demands the protesters are making.

    Well what has happened is that over years the 1% have ignored, not consulted with, ripped off, cheated, repressed and exploited the 99%.

    The demands are basically a list of the many things the protesters have been concerned about over the years.

    Bank bailouts that were used to pay executives huge bonuses for destroying the world economy

    Invading Iraq based on a lie

    They want Wallstreet to be held accountable for what they did. Obama has not went after ANYONE on Wallstreet for the crimes they committed.

    The same things any of us want: freedom, fair chance, money, jewels, those flying skateboards from Back to The Future 2, and a copy of Back to The Future 2 on Blu-Ray
