The “Occupy Wall Street” movement is heading for Toronto and 950 other cities around the world.
In September, a poster in Adbusters magazine called for people to gather in New York to protest against big companies that make a lot of profit.
Although the protest was rather vague and unfocussed, young people came – and they kept coming.
They met in the “financial district” in New York, NY. The financial district is where many big companies have their headquarters, and where many stockbrokers (people who trade stocks) work.
It’s where a lot of profit is made.
Wall Street is a famous street that defines New York’s financial district.
