This is why they're doing it: http://nycga.cc/2011/09/30/declaration-of-the-occupation-of-new-york-city/
You have waaaaaaay too much faith in Obama. This movement has nothing to do with him. Most are upset and find him to be a weak leader. His campaign was helped by Wall Street. Why would we listen to him?

This movement is not about Obama. I've heard rumors of Moveon.org and the Obama administration potentially hijacking it, but I believe the people are already on to such ideas and will not allow this to become about political parties. Besides, Obama is a puppet of Wall Street.
Also, there are people from all walks of life involved; not only young people.
You're right - class warfare will get us no where. This is why people are rising up to say NO to the corrupt institutions that are only concerned with profit. They will step all over us if we let them. Yes, these demonstrations can make a difference. No, not everyone has the opportunity to be successful. Kids who have worked hard and gone to school for higher education, only to end up with massive amounts of debt because of the lack of jobs in this country, have more than a right to be upset. Some people are fortunate and make it through. If you're one of said fortunates, that's awesome! But don't blindly assume that everyone will have the same luck. And yes, it is a matter of luck these days. Not everyone in this country can be as "successful" as the millionaire CEOs of corrupt institutions; there's not enough money to go around! And credit is not money!
Please inform yourself more on this important issue. Also, I'm not sure how you're confusing it with Marxism...
