Occupy Wall Street Blowin' Up

So now the protestors in New York City are getting help, from local workers' unions.

From Newser:
(Newser) – First they got support from the Marines, and now labor unions are coming to back up the Occupy Wall Street protesters. A transport workers union went to court to stop the NYPD from commandeering city buses for use in transporting arrested protesters. A healthcare workers union is sending food and nurses. And several other labor groups will join those two unions tomorrow for a march with the protesters from City Hall to Zuccotti Park, where they have been camped since Sept. 17.

This make seem trivial right now but actually it's huge. When the NYPD arrested 700 of the protestors over the weekend they needed city buses to transport them all. Without that what the fuck are they going to do walk everyone to the nearest precinct? By cutting into the police's available resources, the protestors are winning. I bet this protest into going to blow up into something bigger within the next few days, watch. 

Oh and if it turns into a revolt, the Marines are on our side. They might be few, but they are proud. Or something like that.
