On Saturday, more than 700 Occupy Wall Street supporters were arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge for protesting against corporate greed and what they claim to be the irresponsibility of Wall Street. Now, it turns out that the mass arrest and sheer size of the protest has inspired similar campaigns all across the country from L.A. to D.C.
The rapid spread of Occupy Wall Street shows that the campaign has tapped into the beliefs of many Americans, encouraging them to speak out against corporatism and greed. This has transformed Occupy Wall Street into a movement and has allowed the campaign to become more cohesive and organized.
