The Occupy Wall Street movement is approaching nearly a month of encampment in Zuccotti Park, and its ranks continue to grow. Similar demonstrations are being staged in cities around the country, while activity here in New York draws more people; more than 1,000 protesters were reportedly at the group's march on Washington Square Park on Saturday. TONY photographer Syd London captured some of the scene over the weekend; click through to read her thoughts on the movement.

From the very young traveling by piggyback, to the Granny Brigade with members as old as 96, each time I visit Occupy Wall Street, I see a widening representation of what makes America. Union leaders and members, students, suits, evicted mothers with master's degrees and children in tow, minimum-wage earners carrying two or three jobs and still not getting by: They are joining the occupation on their lunch hour, their day off, however it is they can get there. They want to be visible and be heard. Because thousands have come together locally—and many more globally—people can see they're not alone in feeling financial concerns that often bring isolation and shame. At each General Assembly I've attended, I've sensed an atmosphere of hope. Much pressure is coming down from the media for Occupy Wall Street to get precise in their demands, but the issues impacting the "99 percent" in reality look much more like a Venn diagram than a bulletpoint list. It will be interesting to see how Occupy Wall Street evolves while still working to maintain its inclusiveness and numbers.—SL
