Wondering how Occupy makes decisions without a leader? After taking over Times Square, the movement assembles in the fountain at Washington Square Park. The idea of starting a new occupation there is debated and ultimately postponed. The exchange is impassioned but also reasoned and inclusive of many voices. Because the NYPD has outlawed megaphones, speeches are transmitted person-to-person, using the "people's mic". Some communications have been edited for length.
While thousands amass in the village for a march on Times Square, another demonstration is taking place at Occupy Wall Street's home in Zuccotti Park. A community group from Washington Heights throws in their lot with the occupiers, and two supporters explain why they joined the movement.
