The Wall Street Journal reports that Trumka appeared this morning at Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park. “Trumka said he came to show his support and hear the protesters’ perspective. He also brought bagels, water and other supplies.” Earlier this week, Trumka said, “These demonstrations are truly spontaneous. … We are going to support them in any way we can. We’re not going to try to usurp them in any way.”
