Let's hope they continue to gain momentum and this leads to real change.
Careful what you wish for... You may not like it.
Everyone who voted for "change" can tell you how well that has worked out for them.

People even in the ATS forum are starting to call people fascist when they don't support the OWS protest. I asked for a definition of fascism and provided one myself but all I got in response was whining about how much I protest socialism. I guess more people read my stuff than I thought.

There were no drum circle hippies, tie dye pot hits, barefoot guitarists, face painting stands, orgies, or even any real hostility between participants.
As I wandered through the crowd I listened to the chatter of college kids about the high cost of tuition or to my satisfaction, Ron Paul and ending the Fed, to talk of the two party duopoly and its control over us all.
There was a nice older man there in a wheel chair that [...] told me that there was nothing left for him just sitting at home, the government has repeatedly denied him Social Security Disability even after the documentation by his doctor of his serious seizure problems (forgot the name of the disease/disorder). At the same time he said that his neighbor is receiving government assistance but is perfectly healthy, the man just complains about his knee, anxiety, and anger issues.
Just as you would tell a liberal to visit a Tea Party rally to understand who they are and what they believe, you should do the same with OWS.
Telling everyone to ignore the media's coverage because it's all wrong is tantamount to telling everyone to trust the official White House press conferences but don't pay attention to things like ATS...
If they show an interview of a OWS’er turn off the TV, it is not worth rotting your brain with.

Yeah, you'll find a lot of people down there giving a #, but hasn't it been proven that the movement was hijacked? This is all part of the plan to rally people against the government and then implement Martial Law and reduce us to nothing.
