I was watching the livestream when this all went down. For the people wondering if this protest is spreading, consider this. Just a week ago people
were showing up in just the hundreds. The past couple of days, people have been starting to show up in the thousands. Not only that, this movement
isn't specifically wallstreet. I encourage you to look up the Boston protests that just happened the other day infront of Bank of America. This is

was, I believe, only 6000 viewers on Friday. On saturday the viewcount reached 23000 people and remained above 10000 people even long after the
situation on the bridge.

earlier) Select pictures are literally being "blacked" out, as in only a black background is showing up where there should be a picture of the
Another thing that is somewhat concerning, is theelitist.net...
Coincidence? I doubt it.
