Occupy Wall Street protesters hit the streets in cities across the nation and worldwide today for a coordinated "National Day of Action to Shut Down the Corporations." As part of the day's events in New York Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi spoke to a crowd of Occupiers in Bryant Park, on the topic of Too-Big-To-Fail banks, and Bank of America in particular. He explained the banks' role in pushing toxic mortgage securities on unsuspecting investors, the practice at the root of the financial crisis, like so: "The banks were basically selling Oregano as weed." For more on Taibbi's "teach-in" and the events of the day in New York, check out our photo gallery.
