Occupy Wall Street has been gaining momentum all day as it has marched throughout the city, gaining more participants along the way and making their share of news.

Now, the protestors have gathered in Union Square in preparation for a march to ¬†Wall Street. Thousands of people are currently gathered there, listening to live performances from Das Racist and Immortal Technique, as well as speeches from labour leaders and immigration advocates, according to Business Insider’s Linette Lopez, who is reporting from the location.
