The Wall Street Protesters are growing




Watch live streaming video from globalrevolution at livestream.com


People have started to protesting at the famous street Wall Street in New York as seen in the live stream above. The live stream does not cover the protesters 24 hours a day so please come back later if you can´t see live pictures.

They are marching through the financial district each business day to mark the opening and closing bells of the stock market. The aim appears to be to get President Obama to establish a commission to end the influence money has over the representatives in Washington. The protesters have now teamed up with the actress Susan Sarandon who played a role in the movie Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. This is what has happened so far:
  • About 100 people have camped in a park close to Wall Street
  • The police have used pepper spray
  • 100 people have been arrested

Update:
Found this interesting video about the protesting and their homepage seems to be: OccupyWallst.org/

  1. Much respect to all of you. I only hope that more and more join and bring a much deserved change in America. It is time that we change the status quo and fight for equality and a country that belongs to the people not the rich or those with the most influence. I think its time to wake up from the "american dream" and make it a reality.
