There is a declaration from those at “Occupy Wall Street on Facebook” , of whom are stating a Call to Action.
“As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies.
I met with some of the organizers for the October2011 protests starting next Thursday. While I understand where they are coming from, I also know where corporatism is coming from.

Imo, it's important for others to view this video in that it surprisingly (to me, anyway) appears to be an actual honest piece of media reporting. It's so different than the usual "news" we're given, that it captured my attention. O'Donnell speaks out against the police brutality that occurs in this nation every day! I can only wonder what motivated this broadcast. Thoughts?
Check it out.. the revolution will not be televised, but it might be netcast.. so far 80 arrested:
More than 1,000 people staged a large rally over the weekend near Wall Street in New York. The protesters had planned to “occupy” Wall Street, but police blocked all the streets near the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Hall in Lower Manhattan.
“A lot of us feel there is a large crisis in our economy and a lot of it is caused by the folks who do business here,” one protester told the New York Daily News.
The New York Times reported that two people wearing bandannas over their faces were taken into custody after trying to enter the building that houses Bank of America offices.
