Stevens Point community members occupied the streets of Stevens Point, chanting, "We are the 99%." November 17 was called the National Day of Action, and Occupy groups around the country, including member of the Stevens Point community, engaged in demonstrations where many chose to Occupy decaying bridges to symbolize, what Occupy organizations described as the failure to put millions back to work immediately. The National Day of Action was created to mark the two-month anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Occupy organizers in Milwaukee occupied the I-43/North Ave. bridge. At the beginning of the Stevens Point demonstration, students spoke of the goals of ‘OccuPoint,’ and how they would like to stand in support with the demonstrators in Milwaukee by occupying the bridge crossing the Wisconsin River.
