Wall Street protesters want every voice heard

The movement that began with a core group of 100 demonstrators has grown rapidly in four weeks.

    In New York, the Occupy Wall Street protests have been ongoing for four weeks, with new groups continuing to add their support.

    What started with a core group of 100 demonstrators has grown with the help of at least eight labour unions, student groups, and people of all ages and backgrounds.

    Currently all decisions are made by consensus during daily meetings. And now the movement is assessing ways to ensure that every voice is heard.
