Occupy Wall Street’s momentum seems to be growing. A new march, orchestrated by the protesters in New York City, has drawn the support of groups such as Communications Workers of America, Democracy for NYC, United Auto Workers, United Federation of Teachers, and MoveOn.org. The march, planned for October 5 at 4:30 EST, hopes to show the faces of the “New Yorkers hardest hit by corporate greed,”according to the Facebook event that already has 2,000+ confirmed attendees.

In conjunction with the labor protest, students have initiated a nation-wide student walk-out at universities that will coincide with the October 5 protest.

Turnstyle will have reporters on the ground so tune in tomorrow for a full report.
