The protest will really only begin to take hold when the ordinary workers on Wall Street (most of Wall Street) begin to join the protest, even if it is initially just during lunch time or after work. A localised campaign should be organised whereby protesters dressed as Wall Streeters (male & female) in business attire walk around the area handing out leaflets asking the office workers to join for a few hours every day. There should be as many protesters as possible dressing in business attire (perhaps the day trippers) so as to 1) confuse the cops because as it stands they find it easy to separate protesters from the Wall Streeters 2) make it harder for cops to carry out assaults on protesters as they won't find it easy to distinguish between protesters and Wall Street workers 3) give protesters more freedom to wander around the area without harrassment from cops 4) reach out and encourage the many workers on Wall Street who would like to join the protest but don't because they have this perception of "Us & Them". If they see a bunch of suited people already protesting, they will feel a lot more relaxed about joining and that perception of "Us & Them" will disappear. Sounds stupid but it's true.
It also allows for protesters to blend in so that surprise attacks in the form of suited flash mobs can be quickly organised causing chaos on Wall Street. This will anger the authorities who will come down heavy on the Occupy Wall Street Camp and try and close it down. This is when comparisons to the Arab Spring will be shown to be justified, when the real revolution will begin to take hold and when Americans will unite to overthrow the oppressors who govern from Wall Street.
