    Since Adbusters called for a protest on Wall Street in September, a leader-less group calling itself Occupy Wall Street has been camping out in Zuccotti Park in downtown New York. The group has been calling itself the 99% of people in America who have no power compared to the top 1%, and their protests have spread beyond New York to more than 100 more “occupied” towns and cities around the country. And today, those protests have spread to 82 countries around the globe, according to organizers. While the mainstream media initially didn’t pay much attention to the movement (or only when there were disturbances or arrests), now there’s even an Occupied Wall Street Journal newspaper with coverage of the events.

    So how are you following the events? TV, radio, online, Twitter or a mix of them? Vote in our poll (feel free to vote for more than one choice) or tell us more in the comments below.
