New York, N.Y.-- "Occupy Wall Street" has gone global, reports Karla Adam: "Inspired by the Occupy Wall Street protests that began in New York, protests entered a second day of demonstrations Sunday as they reiterated their anger at the global financial system, corporate greed and government cutbacks. Rallies rippled across the globe on Saturday as more than 900 cities in Europe, Africa, Asia, and North America took part in the worldwide demonstration, including Washington, Toronto, Denver, and Chicago, where more than 175 people were arrested early Sunday for failing to leave a park after it closed.

In cities around the world, a fraction of the protesters who joined the rallies Saturday were hunkering down for a second night of 'occupation.' It’s unclear how long protesters plan to stay, but it could be awhile: for example, according to local reports, hundreds in New Zealand are camping for the next six weeks in Auckland’s Aotea Square, while Toronto’s St. James park is now known as 'tent city central.'"
