The plot thickens as more unions pledge support to the Occupy Wall Street movement and a collective group with 1 million members expected to march against the machine.
As I previously reported unions are coming out in full force to support the Occupy Wall Street protests. We received news that the 200,000 member strong Transportation Workers Union would be joining the protests. The Teamster’s union endorsed the protests. Rumors of Verizon workers joining the protests. A scathing endorsement was issued by the Industrial Workers Union has also endorsed the Occupy Wall Street protests. Then news that several more unions had committed to or were contemplating joining the protests, while two the unions scheduled solidarity marches.
Now TPM reports even more unions are joining up to protest against Wall Street and the movement is set to grow rapidly.
The article also comes along with the news that a collective of 8 groups, with over 1 million members will be joining the Occupy Wall Street movement to show solidarity and march against the machine.
The other eight organizations expected to join in the October 5 rally, based on its Facebook page, are United NY, Strong Economy for All Coalition, Working Families Party, VOCAL-NY, Community Voices Heard, Alliance for Quality Education, New York Communities for Change, Coalition for the Homeless, which have a collective membership of over 1 million.

There will undoubtedly be an interesting mix of individuals on the ground in New York on October 5th. Third party libertarian types have never mixed very well with unions, but perhaps Americans will be able to unite behind a single cause rather than be manipulated into conflict by mainstream talking pieces at the behest of political operatives. We’re not holding our breath, but this is a good start.
As we suggested in American Powder Keg: New Black Panther Chairman Declares “The Hour of War Is At Hand” much of America is disgusted in the direction we’re headed, evidenced by the 81% of Americans who say they are not satisfied with the governance of the country. We’re all in this together:
The majority of America is not happy and they’ve lost hope, because regardless of what group you identify with, what color you are or what way you lean politically, you’re losing jobs, falling behind on essential bills, having difficulty putting food on the table and are constantly being accosted by government on all levels.
