30,000 move on to Liberty Plaza! No ArrestsAnyone that has kept up with Today's World News should know by now this was going to come. It was just a matter of time. If the people who think they run this Country don't wake up to the fact the People have had enough. This just may get a bit ugly. We have watched world wide the people in Egypt, Libya, Damascus, Iran, among many others. Did people actually think it wasn't going to happen here? This is just the beginning.
Wall Street. The Banks and the Government seem to not even care about any of this. Even though thousands are out in numbers all over the Country? What's really going on?
I cannot count how many posts I've shared on the events the led up to this. Some may say "Your Crazy, The Government isn't hiding anything, It's not the banks. and so on. Or what about the Tea Party? They are crazy to right? Wake up People. It's about America and it values and Morals. Being a Free Nation Matters to these people. A Nation under control and dictatorship will only make it even worse.
We were born Free.
I will do my best to try to keep up with the events going on here. Sorry for not posting lately. It gets a bit frustrating when it seems Nobody wants to know the truth anymore.
Today was a big day for Occupy Wall St. More people then ever before showed up for the march that may very well leave a foot print in history. More than 30,000 people from Foley Square to Zuccotti Park. The numbers of people has increased from 500 during the day to now 30,000 in just a matter of one week. The atmosphere was more exhilarating than anyone has experienced. Multiple people said they could feel the energy and it made them feel as if they were in a euphoric state of mind.
The march to Foley Square consisted of about 2,000 people. The goal was to march to the park and meet up with everyone from the unions. A total of 30 unions supported us today. Not only did we meet everyone from the unions but the city of New York itself. Speeches from all the union representatives helped get the crowd excited and build the energy. Back at headquarters the crew is scrambling to make sure everything stays in order and the cameras are rolling. Access to the city cameras was obtained and used to monitor the march. Once Foley Square was finished the NYPD blocked off traffic for the enormous crowd that walked down Broadway. Once everyone was at Zuccotti Park we all sang and danced to the beat of drums and bellowing voices.
A new angle on Occupy Wall Street reveals the strong micro community that has formed there.

Journalist Luke Rudkowski was attacked by police Wednesday night while trying to document the Occupy Wall Street arrests in NY. NYPD used pepper spray, batons, and brute force to move protesters away from the entrance to Wall Street after many tried to push through police barricades. Rumors immediately circulated that police provocateurs dressed as protesters were to blame for the incident.
