Looming May Day protests indicate Occupy movement escalation

Organizers of the Occupy Wall Street movement plan nationwide May Day protests on Tuesday, May 1, 2012 in an escalation of the movement's activity.
A report at Bloomberg on Thursday indicates that the major Wall St. firms have already initiated heightened security and monitoring of the group's movements in anticipation of possible confrontations.
According to Marisa Holmes, a member of the Occupy planning committee, at least 99 firms have been targeted in midtown Manhattan, including JP Morgan Chase and Bank of America.
Protests are scheduled in over 115 cities across America, including San Francisco, where participants state that they will attempt to shut down the Golden Gate Bridge.
