Occupy Wall Street has been mostly silent since Zuccotti Park was cleared last December, and they planned it that way.
The point was to wait out the colder months until the day that the movement could rise up again with numbers enough to impress the world. That day is supposed to be today.
But here in New York City the sky is gray, and rain has been falling since the early morning hours. It’s supposed to let up during the afternoon, when a big concert featuring Das Racist and Immortal Technique and march is planned in Union Square.
Other highlights include a march across the Brooklyn Bridge at 10:00 am, a day long occupation of Bryant Park, and a JD Samson concert in the Financial District at 7:00 pm.
