Here’s a running blog on the weekend’s protests spreading out from Occupy Wall Street now to many other cities, the aftermath and next plans. New items added at top, as I take a break from my anti–death penalty writing. All times ET….
11:25 The Nation‘s Peter Rothberg on how to support Occupy Wall Street (and keep sending those pizzas).
11:20 Occupy Boston tweets: "Official plans: Tomorrow at 8 AM we will march from camp to Fox News for a march and protest. All are invited."
11:00 New NYT piece: Occupy encampment in NY now a … tourist destination. Or maybe they are just drumming fans. Paging Ginger Baker.
10:30 Occupy the Nation site focuses on protests across USA, live weeds from multiple cities, events.
10:10 Lot of tension earlier this evening at NYC site but then calmed. Great tweets all night, and ongoing, by my friend @michaelkbusch
8:30 Donations of food and lodging handled here.
6:50 MoveOn is having "Virtual March on Wall Street." No bail needed.
5:55 God backs the protests. #OccupyInTheSky
5:25 New NYT piece on the commanders of NYPD–the "white shirts"–taking surprisingly "hands-on" (literally) approach to dealing with protestors. "The prevalence of white shirts around Zuccotti Park signals how closely the department monitors high-profile events. Strategies are carefully laid out; guidelines for crowd-dispersal are rehearsed; arrest teams are assembled. It is all in an effort to choreograph a predictable level of control." With some obvious failures.
5:00 More local feeds to follow (added those below): OccupyRichmond, OccupyKSt, OccupyProv, Occupy_AlbanyNY, OccupyAppleton, OccupyNH. Waiting for OccupyTheWH.
4:35 Yes, they’re everywhere. Follow the action in S. Carolina at @Occupy_SC. And @OccupyCincy, and of course @OccupyLA and @OccupyChicago. And your choice: @OccupyBoston and @OccupyBeantown.
