I met New Jersey film director Christopher Henze at Zuccoti Park. He had a big pile of light purple strips of cloth wrapped around his neck and piled in front of him. He was giving them away.  
 

 
He says "If you combine the colors of the American Flag you get light purple. The Occupy movement is not anti-American, it's ultra-American. It's too much right now to separate us into Red, Blue or White. The OWS movement represents a mix of the 99% which is light Purple."

He says, "To adopt a color also allows those who can't be at one of the occupations to show their solidarity and protest. Wearing the color will show the doubters that there are more of us that they imagined and that this movement needs to be taken seriously. We call the color "New Glory Purple" because it is the result of mixing of "New Glory Red", New Glory Blue" and White."

Here's a short video I shot of Chris explaining his project.
