Breaking news: 10,000 to 50,000 on Wall St
Today saw 10,000 to 50,000 on Occupy Wall Street as the unions began to join in and students staged simultaneous walk-outs of New York City schools. The large discrepency in estimates is due to the fact that news sources crowd estimations vary.
It seems as if the movement may be becoming broader than before. As Tina Sulsman notes:
There were signs protesting racism, Obama, Republicans, Democrats, hunger, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. There were as many signs supporting workers' rights, hunger-striking prisoners, higher taxes for millionaires and an overhaul of the country's financial system.
