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." If recent items do not show up below, simply hit refresh.
Go HERE now for the Monday edition of this blog, please.
11:15 Apparently new idea floated in NY today that I am catching up with and don’t quite get, but here is flyer with the "tenting" concept and list of possible sites… Also, OWS still considering occupying Duarte Park north of Zuccotti — that’s the place many went to after the big bust this week, when informed that church would allow them to stay there — which was not quite true….Unconfirmed friend that Ani DiFranco in march right now for #OWS to Wash Sq Park.
11:00 Back from NY. It seems my old pal Dan Ellsberg speaking to Occupyers in SF — and guy I’ve interviewed a couple times Steve Earle showed up at the drum circle thing in NY today.
2:50 As I leave for second half of all-day Beethoven piano sonata marathon in NY, Mayor Bloomberg has just declared today "Beethoven Day" in NYC. Ludwig, strong defender of the 99%, rolls over in grave, no doubt still clinging to All Men Become Brothers. I’ll be back late tonight. Please, tell cops and mayors, no raids tonight.
2:25 Plenty of jokes about this already but now a full piece on U.S. declaring "pepper spray" a vegetable. Consumption way up since OWS protests began…
2:05 NYC cops now closing off street in front of Bloomberg’s apt in move vs. drum circlers and others, according to people there. Livestream here. What next?…
1:40 Update with details on UC-Davis moves below. 90-day probe shortened to 30 days. Chancellor says she moved after outpouring of concern from students and alumni and around USA. Cops suspended still not named.
