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." .
—Go HERE for the Tuesday edition of this blog.
11:55 Photos from the long day of protests at state Capitol in Olympia, Wash. More below.
10:40 Old buddy Jim Romenseko, who left Poynter amid some controversy, debuts his new How I Got That Story / Photo feature at his new blog with UC-Davis student’s account of getting pepper-spray shot.
9:55 Capitol in Olympia, WA occupied! It’s dark and sometimes cuts out or switches to different locale, but here is Livestream. UPDATE: When livestreamer lost power (or maybe he was arrested?) the cops had moved in and made busts, carried one guy out right on camera. People chanting around the Christmas tree in middle of rotunda. Livestreamer said there was tasering incident but otherwise non-violent. I am trying to get further update now.
8:35 And now: The Occupied Los Angeles Times! It joins "sister" publications in other cities that have followed on the heels of the Occupied Wall Street Journal. See the PDF here but presumably it is now being passed out by hand. It’s four pages in black and white and with full staff box and large photos.
7:45 Seems like good legal tactic from OccupyLA–pointing out that city council approved their camp, citing First Amendment, so illegal for city to move now. (h/t Jon Wiener)
7:10 Harvard students and profs protesting Goldman Sachs event. Background here. Chris Hedges there or nearby.
6:25 L.A. Times: Judge could decide eviction case very soon so Occupyers out there need to be ready…150 fewer tents there, according to one observer….columnist Steve Lopez: arrests will come, maybe tonight, camp will close, then what?
5:50 Yesterday I mentioned OWS rally in my little town of Nyack. Now here’s view that it was co-opted by Truthers and others "off-message."
5:25 Update on UC protests vs. Regents–have already overwhelmed one meeting and made own demands…. Despite protests, CUNY board just approved big tuition hike. Livestream below.
