"I'm a supporter of Occupy Wall Street and the other 1300 Occupy movements," Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello told Rolling Stone during his visit to the protest site in Manhattan earlier today. "This is a place where, in your home town, tomorrow you could start Occupy Libertyville, Illinois. It's a place where people can gather to express their grievances and express their solidarity with one another, like – shit ain't right, and we're gonna do something about it."
