Protests spread in the US against big banks

Hundreds of protestors marched on the New York homes of wealthy billionaires who sit on the boardrooms of the banks and other financial institutions of the US on October 11, 2011.

The protesters chanted "Banks got bailed out, we got sold out" and "Hey you billionaires, pay your fair share" and carried signs that "We are the 99 percent."

Since September 17, protesters have been camped out in a park in Lower Manhattan near Wall Street, rallying against bailouts for banks during the recession, which allowed them to earn huge profits while average Americans suffer high unemployment and job insecurity with little help. The protest has called itself the "Occupy Wall Street" movement.

The protests are spreading to different cities of the US as well as involving different sections of workers and student youth. According to reports, rallies have been held in over 1400 cities throughout the US and around the world. University students in the US are planning solidarity actions on at least 56 campuses on October 13.

needs instead of fulfilling capitalist greed. This is the
program for the Navnirman of India.
