The anger at the gross financial inequality billowing across this nation -- the world -- began with just a tremor, so slight that only a small percentage felt it. Soon it became a shudder, then a tsunami -- shaking people awake; catapulting them into action, ballooning the percentage to 99.

The "hot spot" in America is New York City's Zuccotti Park -- now Liberty Plaza -- where the numbers of youth, the jobless, and legions of those seeking justice and equality in their "Occupy Wall Street" movement continue to grow.

According to Occupy Wall Street...

"The early morning announcement from the Mayor's office in New York came after 300,000+ Americans signed petitions to stop the eviction, and flooded the 311 phone network in solidarity with those in Liberty Square. At 6 AM this morning, 3,000+ New Yorkers, unions, students, and others joined the occupiers in the square to send a clear message to the 1% who want to silence this peaceful assembly of the 99%. Donations poured into the protesters from Italy, England, Mexico and many other countries by everyday people hoping to help the movement grow.


"On October 15th, Occupy Wall Street will demonstrate in concert over 951 cities in 82 countries and counting as people around the globe protest in an international day of solidarity against the greed and corruption of the 1%."

Move On caught the sheer delight that swept the crowd of protesters early this morning when they got the news...

Rob Kall, editor and publisher of OpEd News, is on the scene at Zuccotti Park, and will add commentary, video and photos of the action to this article as it happens.  Stay tuned...

October 15 Occupy Wall Street Activity

With boots on the ground, camera in hand, OEN's Rob Kall is providing live coverage of today's activity. Take a look ...

The people who have gathered in Liberty Plaza are hardly the "mob" that Republican Eric Cantor sneered about. They have jobs -- working for Justice -- and they are up and about early, confident that what they are doing is right; that it will ultimately bring justice and fairness to citizens throughout the nation.

 It's tough sleeping outdoors in Zuccoti park. So a group of people from Queens collected about 150 suits and sports jackets to donate to the Zuccoti Park occupiers, and they came with a seamstress and sewing machine to adjust hems and cuffs, and hair stylists to spiff up the young men who, after weeks out-doors were getting a bit scruffy. 

 And, as they prepare for today's work, Rob Kall speaks to a number of them. Check out his interview with hairdresser Lizzy Steelhart below...

Great photos of happy, mission-oriented Americans with a job to do...

All dressed up -- and somewhere to go...

Corinne Walther, a student at Smith College in Boston was here last week to support the movement, and came down again this weekend ...
