IT’S SPREADING: Occupy Wall Street Now A National Movement
Occupy Wall Street’s momentum is reaching new heights this week as the movement spreads throughout the country and the core group of protesters in New York City prepare for the unions to join up on Wednesday.
The protests, initially organized by the hacktivist collective Anonymous, began on September 17, with the broad and fluid aim of opposing the influence of the financial sector in politics. But the demonstrations began rather modestly in Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park, drawing only a few hundred people at first and even fewer as the days went on. Media coverage of the protests was pretty scarce, and largely focused on the NYPD’s response to the demonstrations.

This is the best thing possible! There are meetings in Buffalo and Rochester but they are scarcely populated so far. I would love to be part of this!
Can you believe rightwingers are calling this what Nazii's did?
What do you think would be happening if dozens or hundreds of Tea Party people had been treated like hoods and roughed up then arrested?
No double standards here, eh?
