Is this Occupy movement even a movement?

This "occupy" movement (if it is one) seems to be fascinated with facts and numbers, even if they're made up and wrong.  So I decided to compare this "movement" with the civil rights movements of the 1960's, which many Occupy supporters have compared to their movement.

The graph speaks for itself.

Some other movements also include:

March for the Ku Klux Klan in 192335000
Peace in Vietnam March (1965)35000
March to end the Vietnam War (1967)35000
Cox's Army March in 193225000
Bonus Army March in 193220000
March against apartheid in South Africa (1970)10000
Women's Suffrage March in 19135000
Women's March for Peace and Freedom (1968)5000

Even the KKK had more marchers than those currently squatting at Wall St.
