I regret finding out about all this only very early in October or so. It began on September 17 and it's not only still going on but getting bigger and has spread to other American cities. It is spreading to Canada too. There's so much stuff about it on the net that it would be practically superfluous for me to start lots of links. Just google "Wall Street Occupation" for example.
Check out also what some other people are saying about it: Noam Chomsky, Chris Hedges, Michael Moore.
Check out also the Adbusters ongoing page about this.
Also try Global Revolution.
And here is Truth Dig.
