    Protesters on October 6, 2011 converged on Freedom Plaza in the United States' capital to establish another "occupy" camp and rally under the banner "Get money out of politics!"

    The "Occupy" protests started on September 17 with a few dozen demonstrators who tried to pitch tents in front of the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street, New York.

    Since then, Americans have planned "Occupy Together Meetups" in more than 500 cities across the nation.
