Not a total rip from Zero Hedge as much of the info contained we have covered.
There are two new vids one of which is interesting for the fact that it catches "Rogue cop on the lose" illegally pepper spraying other persons, one of whom was a media photographer and not a protestor. Videos will be placed at the bottom. Note the language that re-enforces what we have been saying along, these is not a "left" vs. "Right" issues. That concept is a game being played on the American public so that we will fight each other as opposed to the "real" enemy. Until that concept is fully grasped by the general public, constitutional violations and the wealth gap will continue unabated

Major Unions Join Wall Street Protest
The Teamsters Union and New York Transit Workers Union have thrown their support behind the Wall Street protests.
Alexander Higgins - reporting live from the protests - notes that United Airlines pilots marched in the protest wearing their full pilot uniforms:

True Conservatives Support Protest
This may seem at first glance like a liberal cause, but as I've previously noted, that is a false dichotomy, and true conservatives support it:
The whole left-versus-right thing is just a distraction trick. It’s really the American people versus the giant bankers, captains of the military-industrial complex, and handful of others who are benefiting by shafting the average American.Remember that one of the founders of the Tea Party – Karl Denninger – has slammed the current Tea Party (which was quickly co-opted by the mainstream GOP) for serving the rich and the Republican party instead of fighting against the giant banks, and iscalling for non-partisan, Gandhi-style nonviolent resistance to take on the banskters.
And see this.
Protests Spreading World-Wide
The protests are spreading world-wide. There are now purportedly 80+ copycat protests planned world-wide, including London, Chicago, Los Angeles, Bostonand Las Vegas.
Mainstream Media Now Covering Protest
And the police brutality on innocent Wall Street protesters is finally being covered by the mainstream news.
Here is a must-watch MSNBC segment:
The Guardian and Atlantic Wire also have good write ups on these incidents. They discuss the following video of yet another unprovoked pepper spray attack (this one on a media photographer not directly taking part in the protests):
As with the police use of firehoses on African-American children in the American South during the 1960s or the murder of non-violent South African activists, police violence seems to have backfired and turned public opinion in favor of the protesters.
