Thom Hartmann: The Movement Marches on & so do the Banksters...

The Occupy Wall Street movement swelled to at least 20,000 people yesterday - as demonstrators peaceably marched through Manhattan alongside throngs of unionized workers. But as the sun went down - and demonstrators attempted to take their march to Wall Street - another police crackdown ensued. Using pepper-pray and swinging batons - police prevented protestors from accessing Wall Street - and they also closed the Wall Street subway stop. I guess that's the what the banksters bought when JP Morgan's CEO Jamie Dimon order a a $4.6 million donation contribution to the NY cops family and party fund, tax deductible and thus paid for by you and me.
All in all - dozens were reportedly arrested - capping off a tumultuous 18th straight day of occupation in lower Manhattan. But the movement marches on - another huge demonstration is happening today - this one taking place in the streets of the nation's capital, Washington, DC.
(How do you think it will turn out? Tell us here.)
