I’ve been live-blogging OWS here daily since October 1. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. All times ET. My new e-book is "40 Days That Shook the World: From Occupy Wall Street to Occupy Everywhere." Most of my other books here.
—-Go HERE for the Tuesday edition of this blog, now posted.
7:05 NPR with segment tonight on Occupy and the police–mainly on cops using social media and livestreams to monitor actions but also taking a less than hard hitting approach to police violence.
2:20 Today’s song pick for OWS, one of the greatest songs ever, and a sad reminder for a day after Christmas: Stephen Foster’s "Hard Times," recent live Springsteen version.
11:25 Vandals destroy Christmas display in Albany, NY, where an OWS camp was just wrecked. Not an OWS action but with "anti-capitalist" and anti-shopping message. Doesn’t help.
11:20 Now 23 straight polls have shown people want to raise taxes to pay down debt.
10:45 To help Sen. Sanders take back campaigns from meta-spenders go here….. I’ll be on Chuck Todd’s MSNBC show tomorrow talking about my book on how the modern campaign came to be –inspired by Upton SInclair’s EPIC anti-poverty movement in 1934.
9:25 A new interview with Todd Gitlin on where OWS is at now and months ahead. "All movements are constantly influx. Occupy Wall Street has already learned so much from itself. It’s already polymorphous and various. There are a lot of activities going on that don’t make splashes in media. That will continue to be true through the winter months."
