As Protest Grows, Villagers Help Occupy Wall Street

With several labor unions said to be joining the protests today, it’s bound to be a big one for Occupy Wall Street. Good Old Lower East Side (GOLES), which was last seen demanding rent reform, has sent an e-mail inviting its followers to meet at 171 Avenue B at 3:30 p.m. for a march – “against corporate greed and the big banks” – to Zuccotti Park. (City Room, by the way, introduces us to the park’s namesake today.) And an op-ed at NYU Local is encouraging New York University students to join in a march from Washington Square Park at 4 p.m. Of course, NYU students have already gotten involved – watch this video to hear from East Village resident Anna Lekas Miller, who has been on the scene from day one.
