In 1886, hundreds of thousands of Americans filled the streets of New York, Boston, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh and Chicago demanding an eight-hour work day. The demonstration was dubbed the “Second Declaration of Independence.” Now the Occupy Movement is saying it’s time for a Third.

It's for the 99% to remind the rest of the world just how much they matter.
