LIVE PROTEST COVERAGE: On May 12, Make Big Banks and Millionaires Pay

More than 10,000 people are expected to flood the Wall Street area today to call on Mayor Bloomberg to close the loopholes and stop the destructive bank practices that destroy our communities and cost taxpayers billions instead of enacting layoffs and budget cuts that hurt working families and low-income New Yorkers. The Indypendent will have reporters and photographers on the ground, covering the demonstration as events unfold. For live updates, follow @theindypendent on Twitter for breaking coverage.

In the meantime, here's a video from Rev. Al Sharpton, courtesy of On May 12, about why he'll be marching today.
