Who‘s showing up to ’occupy’ Wall Street today?

Not surprisingly, many of the usual suspects:

AFL-CIO (AFSCME)

United NY

Strong Economy for All Coalition

Working Families Party

TWU Local 100

SEIU 1199

CWA 1109

RWDSU

Communications Workers of America

Next stop: Obama campaign headquarters?

And why are these groups heading down to Wall Street?

At 4:30 in the afternoon the 99% will march in solidarity with #occupywallstreet from Foley Square to the Financial District, where their pensions have disappeared to, where their health has disappeared to. Together we will protest this great injustice.
