Who are the Occupy protesters and what is their origin?

Occupy, a group whose origin I do not know, has come to my attention through casual conversation, especially as a result of news media coverage. In spite of their effort, it appears to me that they are protesting in general, without offering a plausible remedy and without specific identification of the problem.

If this were a legitimate movement, I question the title Occupy. In my opinion, this word represents a sense of conflict, which could only serve to divide opinions and people in America. I cannot support anything that is not peaceful, and I refuse to believe that any threat of conflict could bring about a peaceful solution.

By my opinion, and this is just a result of my opinion, I suspect the possibility that these might be professional protesters, so I ignore them. I ask, "What is the origin of these people, and how did they organize? What is their purpose? How did they immediately receive priority news media coverage? Why is a root cause not specifically identified?" (The Occupy appearance in Tokyo suggests that upper management has crossed language and cultural barriers.)

I refuse to believe that they are a random set of people who suddenly came together by a spontaneous but unknown force, which only affected specific people who came into the news.

I remind people that the Declaration of Independence is one of the most important documents of history, and the U.S. Constitution is a good one, too. I recommend a solution which uses these documents.
