Bernard Sanders Supports Wall Street Protests, May Visit October 6 Occupation

As That’s My Congress has noted before, the United States Congress has been almost completely silent on the riveting, two-week long protest in Wall Street. Last night, Senator Bernard Sanders broke that silence.

Speaking on CurrentTV with Keith Olbermann, Senator Sanders praised the protesters who have stayed on Wall Street for 14 days now, saying, “We desperately need a coming together of working people to come together to stand up against Wall Street, corporate America, and say enough is enough!”

Sanders also praised the upcoming occupation of Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C. to start on October 6, and said that he will attempt to attend that protest himself. “Any attention that we can pay to the greed, recklessness, and illegal behavior on Wall Street or to what the Fed is not doing is deserved attention, so I will see if I can be there,” Sanders said.
