“This is what America looks like!” says a group of Occupy Wall Street protesters in this AP video as they set out to march from New York City to Washington, DC. According to Agence France Presse, the marchers’ every move was monitored by a heavy police presence as they left Zucotti Park and boarded the ferry across the Hudson to New Jersey.

From there they plan to walk about 20 miles a day to make the approximately 200 mile trip, stopping in towns and cities along the way.
