A founding editor of the New York City based Indypendent, Gupta also helped found the Occupied Wall Street Journal. He is touring occupations around the U.S. and is in New York today. He recently wrote the piece “Occupying the Rust Belt,” which states: “Davina DeLor, a 39-year-old freelance artist and supporter of Occupy Allentown, says, ‘A lot of people are losing their jobs. Food is going up, healthcare is going up, homelessness is going up, but the paychecks are not going up. The jobs are minimum wage or $9 or $10 an hour. And if you have a family you can’t survive on that.'” He also recently wrote “Where OWS and the Tea Party are Coming From.”
