The Occupy movement, which stemmed from the Occupy Wall Street protests last year, is calling for large-scale demonstrations across the country on Tuesday, which is May 1. Occupy protesters have rallied against what they say is income inequality, corporate greed and the influence of the wealthiest 1% of Americans.
