Today, October 15, 2011, has been labelled a day of action and the number of protesters grew.
Action of one type or another has been experienced in around 951 cities across the globe.
Police in Rome struggled to control a wayward element of protesters and the situation is escalating still. Tear gas, water cannons and an increase policed presence carrying out baton charges resulted in some arrests.
In London Wikileaks founder Julian Assange attended one rally and addressed the crowd. He travelled to London from his friend Vaughan Smith's country mansion in Suffolk. This is Assange’s home whilst he remains on bail fighting extradition to Sweden. In line with his bail conditions Julian intends to be back home in Suffolk before his 10pm deadline. If the police begin kettling protesters, that may not be so easy.
Occupy Together has been informing groups online and listing events. This along with Facebook and Twitter will have helped protesters stay in touch. Was Blackberry’s outage this week part of a bigger plan, I wonder?
There are however many such Occupy sites on-line adding their twopenneth. It is still relatively early in the day and Occupy the World is not over yet.
In Paris, France, leading finance ministers of the leading economies have met to discuss the depressing state of Europe’s economy.
The number of people involved in the World–wide protests is said to have been small but they may not be dismissed easily nor have been protesting in a once in a lifetime event.
