To editor,
 
 
My name is Frank John Li and I'm a 17 year old student currently residing in Barrie, Ontario.
 
Recent occupy movements occurring around the world has been a main topic in media. I've noticed some media portray the occupy movement as a beacon of shame. I would like to make clear that the occupy movement should bring us pride.
 
 
Men and women, young and old, of all ethnic groups peacefully march demonstrating just what the west has been so prominently admired for - the freedom of speech. Although there are some incidents of police clashing with protesters, such a thing has always occurred when group mentality takes over. Citizens are making a difference, grabbing the spotlight of media attention to address issues that matter to them.
 
Let's not lose sight that the occupy movements are something we ought to be proud of.
