| Sunday, Oct 9, 2011The protesters of Occupy Wall Street are getting more and more organized as the days pass. Katy Tur followed them throughout the day and found out just what they are up to now.
An expedition of protesters from the Occupy Wall Street movement moved from Lower Manhattan to Washington Square Park Saturday.
Organizers of the demonstration say they will hold a "general assembly" at 3 p.m, which they describe as an opportunity to recruit new supporters and share ideas.
"The Washington Square Park thing is a great way to bring us to the next level," said Michael Fix, an organizer of the demonstration.
There are no plans at this stage to set up a 24-hour camp in Washington Square Park similar to the one that has operated for three weeks in Lower Manhattan's Zuccotti Park.
The protesters living in Zuccotti Park have built a full-service demonstration staging zone, complete with hot food, health care, a digital counter registering supporters, and a solar energy truck to help supply power to electronics.
"ITS VERY INTELLIGENT PEOPLE WHO ARE PART OF THIS MOVEMENT, WHO ARE TRYING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. YOU KNOW?, ITS NOT HIPPIES OUT HERE, WHO ARE STANDING FOR THEIR RIGHTS, ITS PEOPLE, OK!. SO, LETS STOP TRYING TO CLASSIFY AND CATEGORIZE US INTO SOMETHING THAT WERE NOT."
