Video: 1,000 People March With OccupySTL (UPDATED With Additional Coverage)

I finally got to visit OccupySTL in Kiener Plaza today and they really have something special going on. Today a crowd of 1,000 people marched to Bank of America to protest their unethical foreclosure practices. It was great seeing union folks gathered and on the march with the dedicated occupiers who have been standing up against corporate greed the past two weeks.

Here's my video wandering through the crowd of 1,000 chanting across the street from Bank of America:

  1. Thanks for the vids. I think it's fine for people to voice their opinions as long as there is no violence. It's understandable that many people are discontented these days due to the economy and state of global affairs.
