U.S. anti-corporate movement expands #OCCUPYWallStreet

Excellent Coverage…

In the two weeks since activists with Occupy Wall Street began protesting in New York, the movement has gained traction nationwide with events in almost every major U.S. city. Meanwhile, more mainstream allies are joining the cause, including unions, members of Congress, celebrities, pundits, and academics.

Demonstrators and sympathisers oppose “corporate greed and corrupt politics,” the “gangsterism of Wall Street,” and the disproportionate effect the global economic downturn has had on “the other 99 percent.”

In a sign that the movement is gaining traction, some of New York’s biggest labour unions have now joined protestors (or are planning to join later this week). The city’s 38,000-member transit union pledged its support and is planning to encourage members to join the street demonstrations early next week. Unions representing teachers, doormen, security guards, maintenance workers, postal workers, healthcare workers, and other labour sectors have also pledged support and hinted at future involvement.

Organisers hope that union involvement will swell the ranks of protestors from a few hundred to a few thousand, though it remains unclear whether organisers will be able to reach their initial goal of 20,000 on-the-ground activists in New York City.
