Occupy Wall Street Spreads Exponentially Across U.S. October 15 an International Day of Action

12.10.2011 - New York - Pressenza IPA

The movement is growing at an astounding rate, with the number
of *”occupations”* nearly doubling in just a few days.

The issues of Wall street and corporate greed, lack of
accountability, corruption, the influence of money in politics, and
the lack of future have struck a chord with growing numbers. The
movement relies on a horizontal form of organization in which
decisions are made by consensus and diverse initiatives replace
centralized planning. This form seems to fit the times, as new
local actions are springing up spontaneously in large cities and
small towns.

Many of these groups are likely to participate in an international
day of action on October 15. The idea arose in Europe where the
15M/Real Democracy Now/Indignados movement in Spain has
been particularly important, along with large protests in Greece
and other European cities. But the movement has now become
global, perhaps thanks to the resonance of Occupy Wall Street
in the heart of the financial district in New York City. According
to the website Occupy Together [http://www.occupytogether.org/](http://www.occupytogether.org/), a gathering point for information on the actions around the
world, *”Occupy Taipei”* is planning a sit-in for October 15 in front
of the landmark building Tapei 101. In London, protestors plan to
occupy the Stock Exchange on Saturday.
