    FILE - In this Aug. 27, 2011 file photo, Andrew Young, former ambassador to the United Nations, pays tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., during an interfaith prayer service in honor of King at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington. Veterans of past social movements, such as Young, say the Occupy Wall Street protest has been a welcome response to the abysmal economy and has the potential to galvanize wide support, but whether it will lead to lasting political change remains to be seen. ?There?s a difference between an emotional outcry and a movement,? said Young, who worked alongside the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. as a strategist during the civil rights movement. ?This is an emotional outcry. The difference is organization and articulation.? (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)
