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 .
–Please go HERE for Tuesday blog, now posted.
11:40 One of most disturbing arrest videos yet, as four cops in Australia strip a young woman in public — she was wearing a "tent" dress as protest and they chose to violently seize it, leaving her nearly naked on the ground and screaming (and apparently now charging sexual assault).
11:05 MSNBC previews tomorrow’s anti-foreclosure actions and occupations.
9:40 First wave of OccupyWashington activists and unionists arrive in D.C. Not a full OWS action but related. Tents to come, they say…. OccupySF folks sent me this video of their test flight of their own "helicopter" device after I posted livestream of Tim Pool testing his "drone" for aerial footage.
8:25 Annie Appel continues her great series of black and white portraits from OccupyLA, now updated with shots from around the period of last week’s raid. She tells me they will all be published soon in a magazine.
7:30 Dave Weigel at Slate with lengthy piece on yesterday’s house drama at OccupyDC: shift to performance art? or mainly symbol of how cops will stop upcoming home occupations?
7:15 Jackson Browne at OccupyDC, following up his Zuccotti Park gig.
7:00 Oh no, they did not go there…Christmas gift idea: Shirt with image of Pepper Spray Cop doing his thing re: the Baby Jesus.
6:35 Maddow sets the scene / background for tomorrow’s OcuppyHomes actions….New Orleans campers get their day in court tomorrow, they just learned.
