This is a protest for freedom, but mainly from economic oppression and banking crimes that have gone without prosecution.

The protests have grown since the 17th, at one point there were 10,000+ marching on Wall street.

The demonstration is still HAPPENING AND NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT. This will not end until the voice of the people is heard.

I think they collectively need to come to some agreement as to what they want. I also think it would have been more powerful to have this demand in mind before converging on Wall Street.

Personally, I don't think this will even be a blip on the rich bankers' radar. Also, the ones that really run things are no where near Wall St., so what is the point? You really want to know who is one rich 'meddler' that plays the U.S. (and obama) like a fiddle? George Soros.

That's for sure, they don't want the world to be informed. They have been about 80 arrest so far and still nothing on TV about it. Only on the net. Its only a matter of time before we loose the net because it seems they don't have much control of the information we spread on it.

Thanks Momoese,

They are forming a democracy and voting on demands among the thousands in attendence as we speak. You can all catch the live feed here:

Important: There is currently a petition online at Whitehouse.gov, signed by 5,000 so far, calling for President Obama to recognize the call for action by the people occupying Wall Street.

The revolution is now televised friends. I know the world is watching and being updated via Twitter and Facebook.

Its a sad reality for the whole world to see the US bombing Libya and killing many innocent people under the guise of spreading democracy and allowing the Libyan people to protest freely, but at the same time, right here in our own country the government uses the police to do exactly that by harassing and assulting people whose rights are supposed to be protected by the Constitution.

What a disgrace and hypocracy our government has become, especially to all the men and women overseas who are putting themselves in harms way to protect and ensure that our Constitutionally-protected rights, that the future of our democracy and freedom are secure, only to see our government and our police suspending our rights and abusing protesters just like Mubarak, Ahmadinejad, or Jong-il.

While I may tend to agree with some of the stated purposes or goals of the protestors, and think the police are going too far in spraying peaceful demonstrators, to conflate NYC police and Obama and Bloomberg to Mubarak et al is nowhere near reality. In Eygpt, Syria, Libya etc. the ruling party shoots and tortures demonstrators just for demonstrating. Even back in the Chicago convention days, the cops 'only' beat and arrested. There is absolutely no comparison. And those troops overseas have everything to be proud of, a free country, warts and all. Just my humble opinion.

More like representation WITHOUT taxation for the lower 49% (or thereabouts) that get a free ride re taxes. I'd love to see anyone that does not contribute any share (let alone a falsely named 'fair share') forgo voting privileges until they are a contributer. THAT'S FAIR!!

I saw a reporter that was speaking to some of the protestors, and attempting to get them to actually say what their goals were. One after another made some bland vague comment that really didn't communicate a goal or purpose. They were the same sort of inane vacuous comments I heard in the '60s like "I wanna stick it to 'the man'" or "I wanna give 'power to the people'" with no explanation of who 'the man' was or what 'stick it' meant or what sort of 'power' or just who exactly the 'people' were. I really expected better from them. They seemed the sort that were mostly bored, and just decided to show up because 'they didn't have anything better to do' or to get on tv or 'because it seemed to cool to do'. Sorry guys - sadly disappointing.

You are talking here to old ex-SDS member. I've been on both sides of more demonstrations here in DC than U care to remember. But unlawful (w/o permits) demos will always lead to arrest, as will going beyond the limits of the permit. As someone who worked with the Medical Committee for Human Rights, and as someone who has fought for those same rights as a combat medic, I advise a dose of reality. Is everything hunky dory here in the USA? Of course not. However, just try doing the same tactics in other countries to see the values of the USA.

Occupy Wall Street et al do not scare me at all, even give me a small bit of hope. The Tea Party fanatics scare the hell out of me.

A good take on it.
