News Links: Occupy Wall Street Protests 1 - 12 Oct 2011

From Denny:  Occupy Wall Street is finally getting the attention of mainstream media.  Europe, the Middle East and Asia are as fascinated with the protest movement as are Americans.  Wall Street and other Big Business concerns like Fox News have tried to trivialize the anger of America's majority but to no avail.

The protests are growing exponentially as more people from all different walks of life and age groups are lifting up their voices in protest against America's "bought government" and demanding reform from our highest politicians.

Check out how the media's awareness of the movement has evolved from first "why take them seriously" to "OMG! This is the real deal!"  The protest first erupted in New York City in September.  At the time the organizers planned to march for three weeks.  Now that the movement has morphed and evolved, developing a life of its own, organizers threw that plan out of the window, planning to march indefinitely.
