'Occupy Wall Street' Welcomes Unions

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The "Occupy Wall Street" protests are seen swelling on Wednesday as a number of union groups are expected to participate in a walk from Foley Square to the Financial District in lower Manhattan.

Among the unions that Occupy Wall Street said would join the protest are the United Auto Workers, AFL-CIO and the United Federation of Teachers.

"The residents of Liberty Square will gather to join their union brothers and sisters in solidarity and march," the Occupy Wall Street Web site said. "The 99% will march in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street from Foley Square to the Financial District, where their pensions have disappeared to, where their health has disappeared to."

A once-disjointed effort, the protestors issued a collective statement of their mission that said they had peaceably assembled to let facts be known for "all people who feel wronged by the corporate force of the world."

"Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face, and generate solutions accessible to everyone," Rebecca Buell, Occupy Wall Street executive director, wrote in a statement.

Among some of the "facts" listed were that corporations had perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace, blocked alternate forms of energy, and continued to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government contracts.

Wednesday's march with the newly added unions was expected to begin at 4:30 p.m. EDT.
