Day 8: Occupy Wall St spreading

The Wall Street Occupiers are marching around New York's financial district now, chanting "Occupy Wall Street" and "Wall Street's Our Street."
Suite 101 reported on celebrities that joined the occupation, including rappers Lupe Fiasco and Immortal Technique, The Yes Men, 9/11 first responders and Ivan Marovic from the Serbian resistance group Otpor!
According to the Occupy Together website,
Have you been keeping track how quickly new locations and groups are being added and popping up on social media sites?! We are now gathering information on over 35 different events around the world.
We caught Occupy Chicago marching in the Loop chanting "Banks got bailed out, we got screwed." Watch the live feed here. Occupy LA's Facebook Page says their event will start at City Hall around now.
And according to the live feed, protesters are looking out for agent provocateurs. No surprise there.
We'll keep you posted.
