How Many American Cities Are Now Being “Occupied?”

How big, how extensive is the “Occupy Wall Street” movement in America?

It’s hard to day for sure, but this list (from occupytogether.org) gives a hint:

Albuquerque, NM | Allentown, PA | Athens, GA | Atlanta, GA | Asheville, NC | Austin, TX | Baltimore, MD | Boston, MA | Buffalo, NY | Burlington, VT | Berkeley, CA | Charlotte, NC | Chattanooga, TN | Chicago, IL | Cincinnati, OH | Cleveland, OH | Colorado Springs, CO | Dallas, TX | Dayton, OH | Denver, CO | Elkhart, IN | Eureka, CA | Findlay, OH | Flagstaff, AZ | Grand Rapids, MI | Honolulu, HI | Houston, TX | Idaho Falls, ID | Indianapolis, IN | Inland Empire, CA | Ithica, NY | Jacksonville, FL | Kansas City, MO | Lexington, KY | Lawrence, KS | Los Angeles, CA | Las Vegas, NV | Louisville, KY | Madison, WI | Maui, HI | Miami, FL | Minneapolis, MN | Missoula, MT | Mcallen, TX | Nashville, TN | New York City, NY | Norfolk, VA | Northhampton, MA | Ocala, FL | Philadelphia, PA | Portland, ME | Portland, OR | Riverside, CA | Salt Lake City, UT | San Diego, CA | San Jose, CA | San Francisco, CA | Santa Fe, NM | Sarasota, FL | Seattle, WA | St. Louis, MO | South Bend, IN | Syracuse, NY | Tampa, FL | Trenton, NJ | Washing D.C. | Wichita, KS | Winston-Salem, NC

Their “Meetups” list, which includes occupiers in numbers from one to many, shows 1,065 cities.

One speaker in “Occupy Austin” said: “We are the 99%, and we are too big to fail.”

The discipline of nonviolence, which is so distinctive of this movement, amplifies its power and its credibility.

The “We Are the 99%” movement has the potential to dwarf the Tea Party in size and influence.

Whether it does so remains to be seen.

    I am a senior in high school this year and I can’t go to college where I want to because it’s not financially possible. Where’s my future?

    The USA is no longer what optimistic people have allowed themselves to think it is and I don’t think there is much they can do about it.

    Last I checked it was over 1700. I didn’t find a new list today. Sorry.
