Support of Occupy Wallstreet grows nation wide

People around the country are finding ways of supporting the Occupy Wallstreet movement. Action is being taken around the country. Here are two examples from the Midwest;

Here in Wichita Kansas;
Everyone is welcome regardless of ideologies.

Purpose: Show solidarity for Occupy Wallstreet
Demand: Elected officials must act within our best interests or resign
Goal: get as many people as possible to occupy Douglas.

We will hold General Assembly. We will distribute flyers for attendees to post around town.

This event doesn't end until our government meets our demands.

If police come, cooperate but don't engage them. Don't try to convince them to join. Don't try to incite violence against yourself. Violence will hurt our cause. We must remain peaceful and respectful to our surroundings.

In Missouri, from A Blue Collar View;

A group calling themselves "OccupySTL" is planning to protest this Saturday morning at the St.Louis Federal Reserve building to show solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street protests that have been going on in New York City for almost 2 weeks. If you haven't heard about the NY protests it's not surprising.

     Thousands of progressive protesters converged on Wall Street on Sept. 17 to protest the concentration of power and wealth in America. The  

Occupy Wall Street
web site states “The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%.” The "occupation" has continued even as the number of activists has diminished.

And from CBS News;

Demonstrations against the power of banks and corporations that were inspired by the Arab Spring movement are entering their third week in New York - and are spreading elsewhere.
Hundreds of people were marching through lower Manhattan today as part of the "Occupy Wall Street" demonstration.
Protesters are upset over social inequality, bank bailouts and corporate greed .
"Corporations are not people," said Max Richmond in New York City. "They don't deserve the same rights people do."
Moira Laughlin, who traveled to New York from Ohio to participate, is frustrated because she's been out of work for two-and-a-half years. "We have two teenage kids, we still have to pay the mortgage. send them to college hopefully, and it's not easy."
