Michael Moore at #OccupyWallStreet

Michael Moore at #OccupyWallStreet

‘This is a historic day.’


Last night, Michael Moore made his fifth visit to #OccupyWallStreet and delivered an exuberant, celebratory, inspiring sermon via the "human mic” from the steps on the east side of Liberty Plaza (Zuccotti Park).

The burgeoning movement against economic injustice is spreading like wildfire. If you’re not in or around New York City, there are Occupy solidarity actions taking place in more than 200 other locales in the United States. Chris Bowers at Daily Kos has the most comprehensive and credible list I’ve seen. Find an action near you, use the comments field to let us know about new initiatives, and check out a brief guide on how to support the new movement.
