Clergy Members Will Show Support for Occupy Wall Street Protesters

Posted by Karen Benardello On October - 9 - 2011 0 Comment

Members of the clergy are expected to show their support for the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters by joining them in Lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park, NY1 News is reporting. Demonstrators have scheduled a large demonstration for Columbus Day, right after they held a peaceful march to Washington Square Park.

New York police have said they made no arrests during the Washington Square protest, unlike the hundreds of arrests they made during the protests in late September. Demonstrators are saying that they’re staying with the protest to keep sharing their message.

One protester told NY1 “For the most part, the only thing we all have in common is we want equality. We all come from very different backgrounds, very different economic strides, everything. It’s not fair.” The demonstrator added “There’s so many people that don’t have anything to eat and they’re buying $200 lunches, and we’re paying for it.”

Another protester added that they were a business owner and lost the company because of the economy. “My dad’s house is in foreclosure house of the economy and being taken away from him right now, and there’s just too much money in too little pockets.”

Protesters remained at Washington Square Park for several hours, but eventually went back to Zuccotti Park. Washington Square closed to the public at midnight.
