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.
11:45 More on that collaborative film for and about OWS, and watch trailer.
10:30 Here’s new MoJo story on the below, including photo of arrested girl, 14.
10:00 Reports (below) now confirmed via AP, with five arrests at Paui HQ today in Iowa and 12 more at Democratic HQ. That 14-year-old girl released — to her father. "At the Iowa Democratic Party’s offices, protesters targeted President Barack Obama, demanding that he put a stop to home foreclosures, turn down campaign donations from Wall Street, and end indefinite detentions of detainees at Guantanamo Bay. ‘They’re all going to get equal play on this,’ Ryun said. ‘We are very disillusioned with every candidate.’"
9:55 Arresting developments: We hear that GA in NYC tonight passed plan for $100,000 bail fund– and sending $25,000 to Oakland for a "badass" action.
5:00 According to unconfirmed reports, about a dozen more arrests coming in Iowa today — perhaps going on right now — including a girl, age 14, arrested before.
2:25 Police arrest 5 Occupy protesters outside Ron Paul campaign offices in Iowa. They were particularly focusing on his call to eliminate the EPA. Yesterday protesters disrupted a Paul speech and others got busted at Romney HQ.
2:15 Still digging the best OWS tribute song to come from a mianstream artist, the great Ry Cooder, so we’ll make this our Occupy song pick of the day (a daily feature since Oct. 1):
2:00 Politico, of all places, has a major piece on "5 Ways to Re-Occupy in 2012"– starting with "On Campus."
1:55 Ivy Leaguers no longer want to play "moneyball"? Michael Lewis in new tongue-in-cheek (but serious) Bloomberg column on trouble for the One Percenters as OWS impacts college views and recruiting.
