Around 7:30 p.m. last night, filmmaker Michael Moore visited the Occupy Wall Street encampment at Zuccotti Park and gave a brief speech. "I am so impressed by what I'm seeing here," Moore said. "You have done something very important and very historic. It had to happen somewhere, it might as well have been here."

At times, Moore struggled with the method the protestors have in place when someone is speaking: Since they don't have a permit for an amplified device (like a bullhorn), short sentences are repeated by those surrounding you so that everyone may hear. Moore said that while the demonstrators were coming up with their own demands, he had a few of his own: "I want to see a perp walk! I want to see the people responsible for destroying the lives of millions of people in handcuffs, and put away."


The filmmaker also urged to "tax them, tax them, tax them," a reference to the current administration's efforts to eliminate corporate loopholes and tax millionaires at the same rates as the middle class. "I spent 20 years of my life fighting Wall Street and insurance companies, a lot of that has been alone or with a few people," Moore said. "It warms my heart to see all of you here."

The rapper Immortal Technique also visited Zuccotti Park in the wee hours of Sunday morning, and gives a profanity-laden, passionate speech on "spreading true democracy."
