    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     SSWIDTMS shares this video from the October 5 march from Foley Square to Liberty Plaza in Lower Manhattan. He says: 'I don't know if Occupy Wall Street is the best way to go about the change, but at least they are vocal, visible, and active in discussing solutions.'
    - elchueco, CNN iReport producer

    #OccupyWallStreet marched to Foley Square had had a MASSIVE rally with the support of labor and other community groups. After the rally the NYPD didn't let people out of the pen they set up with the rare exception of letting people leave and go directly to the subway. Finally the crowed thins out enough from the tiny exit they did create we were able to get back through to the other side of the square and leave.
