NEW YORK - Occupy Wall Street is going on the road -- a two-week walk to Washington.
A small group of activists plans to leave Manhattan's Zuccotti Park at noon Wednesday (Nov. 9). They hope to arrive Nov. 23, the deadline for a congressional committee to decide whether to keep President Barack Obama's extension of Bush-era tax cuts. Protesters say the cuts benefit only rich Americans.
Kelly Brannon is organizing the 240-mile march with a dozen others. They hope to pick up others along the way. They liken the effort long-distance walks led by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. during the civil rights era.
They say they'll overnight by camping or at volunteered accommodations.
