37. Maybe you can if you are near another major city like SF.
It's catching on, people are inspired by these protesters. I am making a list of cities that are now organizing occupations in solidarity with the Wall St. protesters. :-)

Here's a partial list from my memory:

San Francisco
Chicago
LA
Cleveland
Atlanta

I just saw from one of the protesters that they have collected $10,000 for food! People are really supporting them! :applause:

And now they are getting more help from other groups. This report from the protestors tonight:


Speaker just got out of a meeting with the International Workers of the World and they are ON BOARD and wanting to HELP! HUGE CHEERS! They will be joining them on thursday for a global day of action. Want to know if its ok for a speaker from the IWW to inform the GA on local labor struggles. Want someone to stop by 12:30 PM tomorrow to talk to GA. Want to bring workers to join them in a night march with their children for all to see the solidarity. MORE HUGE CHEERS. IWW has giving them the little red songbook and the little red coloring book.

Can the IWW join us? CHEERS!!! Giant IWW banner provided.


I hope the Unions and other large groups arrange to bring more people to help them also.

But tonight the numbers sleeping there almost doubled, maybe because of the police's actions today.

And, one more thing, Wisc. is organizing car pools to get people to NYC to join them.
