I’ve been live-blogging OWS here daily since October 1. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. All times ET. My new e-book, just out, is "40 Days That Shook the World: From Occupy Wall Street to Occupy Everywhere.".
—-Go HERE for the Thursday edition of this blog.
10:50 And now: an Occupy Wiki site! "Welcome to the the Occupy.net Wiki. a home for occupation related information and knowledge. This wiki is a service of Occupy.net, an initiative bottom lined by the NYCGA‘s Technology Operations Group to bring the #Occupy and Free/Libre/Opensource movements together through the development, deployment and documentation of the tools and techniques people need to create the world they want. Our intention is to collaborate with any and everyone interested in the proliferation of solutions that help occupiers improve themselves and their communities.Please check out the Orientation Manual and get involved." Plus: a new "Maps" site will chart, and show, latest actions around USA.
10:40 Quietly amazing story at NYT site on OWS activists in Albany, NY– some get arrested every night because local DA won’t prosecute because they have not really done anything wrong. So they line up every night after curfew to get their citations as a regular "rebuke" to Gov. Cuomo…. OccupyPhilly, facing eviction, to vote on moving to Thomas Paine Plaza.
9:45 New video call to action from OWS in NY for tomorrow’s big protests — a GA speech last night mashed up with U2 (thankfully not "Sunday Bloody Sunday)." … And now video of the Zuccotti raid set to "New York New York." Thse little town blues….or blue coats?
