*Update -- 12.40pm, October 22:* Occupy Melbourne supporters are peacefully
marching from Federation Square to Trades Hall, despite rain, to hold
further discussions on the movement.

"Asher_Wolf" tweeted: "This march feels like it's picking up hundreds of ppl
every second."

Occupy Melbourne <http://www.occupymelbourne.org/> has released a call for
an investigation <http://www.greenleft.org.au/node/49159> into the police
violence yesterday. The level of outrage over police actions is so great
that even the Rupert Murdoch-owned *Australian*, no friend of the Occupy
movement, editorialised
the police brutality. the editorial criticised the politics of Occupy
Melbourne, but defend the right to protest.
