Last Updated: Nov. 25, 2011

The Occupy Wall Street movement, which dubs itself a "NYC protest for American Revolution", has spurred similiar grassroots demonstrations against corporate bailouts, income inequality and high rates of unemployment. Americans have marched through city streets - from Boston to Santa Cruz to Texas - and camped out in parks and in front of Federal Reserve Banks. Similar protests have been organized in cities across Canada including Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto and Calgary. The movement has also flourished online with groups organizing on social networks around the globe.
