The plan is to protest in state capitals and major cities across the nation, but the focus of the revolution will be in New York, where a hoped-for 20,000 anti-capitalists will “occupy” Wall Street, by which they mean set up a grungy temporary encampment on the sidewalk somewhere near the Stock Exchange in order to garner media attention for their message.
