Occupy Indianapolis involvement

Democratic Socialists of America member Marvin Williams reported on the Occupy Indianapolis protest,[4]

"While on their impromptu march around Monument Circle, the very center of the city, and past the Indiana World War Memorial, American Legion national headquarters, and commercial buildings, the protesters carried signs reading “Human Need Not Corporate Greed” and “People Not Profits.” Along the way they chanted, “You are the 99” and “This is what democracy looks like.” Inspired by the first Occupy Wall Street rally in New York three weeks earlier, Occupy Indianapolis was largely organized through Facebook and other online social media.
Members of DSA participated in the Occupy Indianapolis rally, and the Indianapolis Socialist Coalition (the local alliance of DSA, Socialist Party USA, and Communist Party USA) formally voted to support Occupy Indianapolis. The AFL-CIO has voted its support of Occupy Indiana protests.
The Occupy movement has spread to smaller cities in Indiana, including Evansville, South Bend, Fort Wayne, Bloomington, Lafayette, Kokomo, Terre Haute, and Muncie. It has even appeared in the town of North Manchester, where fifteen gathered for an Occupy action. Within the next few weeks, Occupy Indiana will organize the Occupy movement throughout the state and chart its course."
