New York, Oct 22, 2011 (RainbowNewsLine.com) – In a strange turn of events, what started as a leaderless movement, protesting outside New York’s famed Wall Street, has now found empathizers and supporters all over the world. The leaderless movement is inspiring followers in over 900 cities and threatens to become a global phenomenon.

Some notable countries where the arrests are taking place is as follows: London, Rome, Toronto, Auckland, New York, Washington DC. It has spread across to five continents Asia, Europe, Americas, Africa and Australia.

This movement is basically against the 1% of the world’s wealthy population which is known for controlling the events behind the scenes. Protestors have been shouting slogans like “Banks got bailed out, we got sold out”.

In the US, there have been hundreds of arrests that are taking place all across the nation. Instead of this deterring the crowd or drawing them to violence, the leaderless movement continues to grow by non-violent means barring a few exceptions.

The movement has been criticized by neutral sources on the grounds that the protestors do not really know what they want. Some of the demands seem irrational and some of the m not feasible. All these, while their demands are not even consistent across the world.
