The anti-establishment sentiments during the American election 2016, date back to OCCUPY WALLS STREET protests five years earlier. The concept of the rich 1% and the dispossessed other 99%, is in common usage today and Bernie Sanders keeps the spirit alive in his election campaigning. 

Here is a look back att OCCUPY:

OCCUPY explained by The Guardian newspaper:

The 99 %. Who were the occupiers? Huffington Post asked and showed these faces, photographed by August Bradley.

There was a lot of community spirit during the "occupation" and the use of
the people's microphone is memorable.

Energy bikes were used to charge lap top computers. They created a lot of interest and were symbolic in many aspects. Here is more info.
