New York Cabbie: I'm Egyptian And I Support The People Of Zucotti Park

"My name is Mustafa, I'm Egyptian and I support the people of Zucotti Park one hundred percent. I understand what they are saying and actually I like what they are doing. Go for it guys!"

I will get this out of the way first: Mustafa is not the best cab driver. First, he got lost trying to find Zucotti Park home of Occupy Wall Street. And second, this video was filmed while he's stopped at a green light.

However, when he picked me up from the East Village and I told him where I wanted to be taken - he was excited to get to see it. Mustafa was in Alexandria during the revolution in Egypt. He feels connected to the movement at the very tip of Manhattan. He loves America - but not the banks.

Go for it guys!
