* SUNDAY *
11:25 "The Last Occupy," a one-act play at Guernica Magazine.
10:10 Vigil at prison in NYC continues and arrested and protesters can actually see each other, see remarkable photo here.
9:00 Tim Pool livetreaming toniight’s NYC protest march and jail vigil. Laurie Penny reports chant: ‘they’re our brothers, they’re our sisters- we support political prisoners!’
8:00 J.A. Myerson piece on the raid and violence at Truthout. I continue to say: Need bigger turnout of OWSers (many last night from nearby conference and left quickly) or last night will be replayed over and over.
5:00 Super-intense new video from frontlines of police raid on Zuccotti last night.
1:45 Petition for NYS attorney general to probe NYPD and Bloomberg. Still no accurate count of arrests last night, ranging from "scores" to 50 to 100.
12:45 The Occupied Wall Street Journal on last night in NYC.
12:15 Yves Smith’s great Naked Capitalism covers police vs.OWS last night, plus hits "mayor for life" Bloomberg and "goon squad."
11:15 Major Matt Taibbi piece at Rolling Stone on Bank of America still being horrid and still getting government favors.
10:35 Terrific Village Voice wrap-up on yesterday’s conflicts in NYC, with photos. Note: Occupy got large crowd in Zuccotti at one point last night, partly due to lefty forum and Michael Moore speech nearby. By 11 pm many had left. Police raided at 11:30. Quite predictable. OWS needs to build back big, devoted, crowds, from braoder circle, this spring or it’s easy pickings for police.
