7. Cornel West

Civil rights activist and Princeton professor Dr. Cornel West joined protestors on September 27 for a speech.  He also held up a sign reading, “If the war on poverty was a real war we would actually be putting money into it.” Unfortunately his appearances weren’t all peaceful. Police arrested Dr. Cornel West, one of approximately 30 arrests, during a protest against police stop-and-frisk tactics in front of the 28th Precinct in Harlem as part of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
