Occupiers Hit the Road for New York-Washington March

POSTED:

A couple dozen Occupy Wall Street protesters hit the road this morning for "Occupy the Highway," a two-week two-week trek from Zuccotti Park in Manhattan to Washington’s McPherson Square. They'll walk about 20 miles per day, holding rallies with Occupy Philly, Occupy Baltimore and Occupy D.C. along the way. The march's arrival in the capital is timed to the meeting of the Congressional Super-Committee; protesters will rally in front of the White House "to demand the members of the committee serve the 99% and let the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans expire."

• "Bank Transfer Day" was a success, with 40,000 Americans joining credit unions on Saturday alone - more than 24 times the average daily rate. [ThinkProgress

• Adbusters, which was involved with OWS's beginnings, suggests that the next frontier of the Occupy movement is foreclosed and repossessed properties. [Adbusters]

• And, for some OWS-related humor, here's Michael Moore debating a puppy on the merits of the movement. Jimmy Fallon moderates.
