Thousands of demonstrators have taken to the streets to call for social equality and an end to corporate greed as part of the Occupy Wall Street rally, which has reportedly spread to hundreds of cities worldwide.

Baldwin decided to pay a visit to Zuccotti Park, which campaigners have used as their base, and was inspired by the "dedicated people" who shared their views with him.

In a series of posts on Twitter.com, Baldwin writes, "My thanks 2 Aaron from Brooklyn and Sean from Winnipeg for this evening's OWS (Occupy Wall Street) tutorial. My first. A lot of dedicated people at Zuccotti Park. Just heading home after spending a too brief two hours at OWS."

The 30 Rock star went on to outline his own ideas for reform, adding, "OWS needs to coalesce around some legislative policy. The 'occupy' strategy may be an effective one. But what can each entity agree on?

"We need a healthy banking system in this country. We need strong capital markets. What is missing are regulations with teeth."
