On Wednesday, Oct. 5, starting at 3 p.m. EST, “Occupy Wall Street” will march through the streets of New York City with the members of more than a dozen labor unions backing them up.

Included on the list of unions now in solidarity with the occupation are: the AFL-CIO, the Communications Workers of America, the United Auto Workers, the United Federation of Teachers and National Nurses United. They’re also backed up by over two dozen various democratic organizations, like: MoveOn.org, Common Cause NY, 350.org and National People’s Action.
