57. They are forming groups, eg, a Labor Group, which will be
contacting Unions and have already been in touch with the International Workers Group who are or did join them I think yesterday. They have had speakers from that group at the Assembly Meetings this week.

They have a legal group also, to handle arrests and any court procedures they may be faced with. They have a medical group and several others so far.

Their main focus so far has been on the money in politics and the influence of Wall St. on our electoral system. They take suggestions for what their goals should be and then when a goal is accepted, they form a group to pursue it. Eg, I believe they formed a group to arrange for benefit concerts to raise money for equipment and other necessities, food etc. since they plan to be there for months.

I think it is going to grow, it has already. Other cities are now joining them in solidarity. I'm going to try to get a full list of those today so people can go if they want to, and can't get to NY. :-)
