I’ve been live-blogging OWS here daily since October 1. Email: email@example.com. 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.
GO HERE for the Thursday edition of this blog.
9:55 Protesters arrested at Romney HQ in Iowa.
7:15 Occupy in London says the great Tim Pigott-Smith to take part in reading of Dickens’ "A Christmas Carol" at St. Paul’s on Friday. I saw him on stage in London couple years ago and he was also in one of my favorite movies, "Bloody Sunday." Also "V for Vendetta" and many, many years ago — "The Jewel in the Crown" on PBS. A good guy / bad guy.
6:05 Here is my video, inspired by my book, on the first use of a screen "attack ad" to destroy a candidate–author Upton Sinclair, who was leading a mass movement against poverty in 1934 and captured the Dem nomination for gov of California. And my lengthy piece about it all here at The Nation.
3:55 Livestream of Bellingham eviction, w/ riot gear no less in that ultra-peaceful part of the world. They had little warning, they say.
1:00 Much ado about Mitt Romney’s ties to Wells Fargo.– and apparently some people getting arrested today at Romney and Wells Fargo HQ in Iowa . .. Occupy Bellingham (WA) forced to remove tents. Occupy Louisville next.
12:10 Councilman in Charlotte, NC (future host for Dem National Convention) compares local Occupy to the KKK.
