I will take back what I've seen to Kansas.Slate offers a pretty thorough list of people and organizations that are planning a march Wednesday on Wall Street:
Additionally, Working Families Party, Moveon.org, Make the Road New York, the Coalition for the Homeless, the Alliance for Quality Education, Community Voices Heard, United New York and Strong Economy For All are involved in the organization of the march.There are now "Occupy" movements in 81 U.S. cities. Here's an announcement from a newcomer, Occupy Asheville:
Occupy Maine will rally at Monument Square in Portland tomorrow at noon. Occupy Boston will start an "ongoing protest" in Dewey Square tonight at 6. Occupy Chicago camped out in front of the Fed for the seventh straight night. Occupy Los Angeles will march to City Hall and begin the occupation at noon.
