Wall Street protesters gain union support


The Occupy Wall Street movement expanded as several unions and other organizations endorsed the cause and planned to join the protesters. Among those who contributed were MoveOn.org, Working Families Party and United NY. The protest also featured members of the Chinatown Tenants Union and the Transit Workers Union. Across the country, organizers called for students on college campuses to walk out at 2 p.m.

In similar protests across the country, the Massachusetts Nurses Association joined the Occupy Boston protesters. With the renewed and continuing support, the movement is showing no signs of abating. The Occupy Wall Street movement began as a protest against corporate greed and the argument that the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans should be taxed more. Many protesters and supporters have posted images online of themselves with the caption “I’m the 99 percent.”
