Occupy Wallstreet Update

The Occupy Wallstreet protests have been gaining momentum over the past few months. Already most major cities in the U.S. have seen protests from the Occupy protests. It has recently spread outside of the U.S., to places such as Canada and Britain.

On Guy Fawkes Day, a holiday in Britain which commemorates the man who tried to blow up the Parliamentary building, protesters marched to parliament to send them a message. Although the message wasn't exactly spoken, Parliament should remember that government can be overthrown by the masses.

There were also protesters outside of St. Paul's Cathedral in London; protesters preaching against social inequality and big-corporation greed. Apparently the Cathedral has been a venue for protesters for the past couple of weeks as the Occupy protests have been increasing in size.
