WOODBURY - As the Occupy Wall Street protest spreads, and more rallies sprout up across the country, the "occupation" is continuing to garner attention from prominent political figures and activists.

Civil rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton broadcasted his national radio show from Zuccotti Park today. The park is where the movement began 24 days ago.

Rev. Jesse Jackson also spoke about the movement today, saying he thinks demonstrators are making legitimate demands, but that the movement will need "voting power" to be effective.
