NEW YORK - For six days, varying numbers of protestors have camped out in New York's old Liberty Plaza. And now, there is a message about Cleveland on the protest's website.
"We stood in solidarity with Madrid, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Madison, Toronto, London, Athens, Sydney, Stuttgart, Tokyo, Milan, Amsterdam, Algiers, Tel Aviv, Portland and Chicago," the message reads. "Soon we will stand with Phoenix, Montreal, Cleveland and Atlanta. We're still here. We are growing. We intend to stay until we see movements toward real change in our country and the world."
The message comes from "Anonymous"-- a self-described leaderless group behind "Occupy Wall Street."
It mentions Cleveland in what it calls a "Communique From Anonymous" about what the "USA Day Of Vengence" (sic) on Saturday.

newsnet5.com called Cleveland's law department to see if any permits have been filed for any demonstrations or protests in Cleveland on Saturday, and is waiting for a call back with this information.
Earlier this week, the Occupy Wall Street website also claimed a similar demonstration was in the planning stages for Los Angeles, but so far it has not materialized.
Demonstrations have been mostly peaceful, with various media reporting around dozen arrests since Saturday. Protestors say they refuse to let the gatherings become violent. But, there are some tense moments between demonstrators and police in video clips on the website that updates the several days-long demonstration.
Participants say they will stay until the "one demand" is met. But it's not clear what that one demand is. Comedian Stephen Colbert poked fun at the indecision on his cable show Wednesday night.
Later in the skit, Colbert asked a camera crew to find out what protestors are "demanding through their clouds of bong smoke." Colbert then went on to agree with most of what the protestors said on the recordings when they talked about campaign finance and politics.
