Numerous celebrities have showed up at Zuccotti Park over the last few weeks to lend their support to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Malachy McCourt (above), writer, actor, and 2006 New York State Green Party candidate for governor visited on Saturday, Oct.8.

“It seems to me the purpose here is to start thinking,” said McCourt. “Something is going on that is not going stop.”

Other celebrities that have stopped the encampment include Michael Moore, Susan Sarandon, Russell Simmons, Tim Robbins and Kayne West.
