"Occupy Wall Street" Protesters Planning a "National Day of Direct Action" for Thursday

"Occupy Wall Street" protesters, after losing their camp in Zuccotti Park in New York City, are planning to shut down Wall Street by staging a mass demonstration. This mass demonstration is being called a "national day of direct action" and the protesters are planning on Thursday, November 17th.

They will start at 7AM in Liberty Square to "put an end to Wall Street's reign of terror".

After that, the protesters will fan out into all five New York city boroughs in what is being called "Occupy the Subways". The plan is for the protesters to occupy 16 subway stations in order to take the message to the trains.

Finally, they will go to Foley Square and then march to the Brooklyn Bridge to mark the second month of the "Occupy Wall Street" protests.

According to their website, other days of direct action are being planned in other cities around the US and the world.

Other protesters have different ideas about Thursday. In one YouTube video, a protester said, "On the 17th, we’re going to burn New York City to the ground.”

Later in the video, the protest said, "No more talking. They’ve got guns, we’ve got bottles. They’ve got bricks, we’ve got rocks…in a few days you’re going to see what a Molotov cocktail can do to Macy’s."
