Never one to be outdone by Manhattan, Brooklyn is planning its own Occupy Wall Street protest on Saturday, with plans to put down stakes in the borough’s financial center of … Grand Army Plaza.

They’ve got a bare bones website set up along with a few twitter accounts and a Facebook page for the protest scheduled to go from 11am-question mark. All y’all goin?

Want to find […]
