It started with a call online for people to protest Wall Street and the growing divide between the rich and the middle class.  The first protests were small and got little attention.  Now, the movement call occupy Wall Street is becoming a force all across the country.  It spawned another online movement know as "We are the 99-Percent."  With marches in Minneapolis, Chicago, Los Angeles and numerous other cities whatever you want to call this, it's gaining steam.  There are people in Las Vegas organizing and planning a march on the Strip this week.
