Filmed March 30, 2012, 4pm. Spring Training is a series of weekly Friday afternoon exercises developed by the Occupy Wall Street Direct Action Work Group to improve communication, coordination, and build team spirit in marches leading up to May Day. The weekly exercises culminate in the People's Gong in front of the New York Stock Exchange, an action designed to raise the voices of the 99% in contrast to the NYSE's closing bell representing the 1%.

This week, protesters were successful in entering wall street despite hastily set up police barricades. Protesters approached Wall Street from multiple entry points and once inside patiently waited until pacers gave the signal to assemble the action, it was very much like a flash mob.

Tim Poole can be seen in the video livestreaming from the steps of Federal Hall. Stopmotionsolo is there also sitting underneath the statue later on, and occupymusician is there with her trombone. the granny peace brigade are in yellow.

some fighting chants heard:
"Ain't no power like the power of the people, 'cause the power of the people don't stop; say what?"

"Dance for Democracy!"

"A-Anti-Anticapitalista!"
