This is YOUR Movement
"The Occupy SF movement needs your help. There are currently people camping out in front of the Federal Reserve in downtown San Francisco at 101 Market Street (near Drumm). They’ll be there every day and every night and they need supplies. The most pressing needs are food, water, blankets, batteries (C&D), disposable phones with minutes and rain gear. Please join them on the streets, even if it is just for a few hours of moral support. Camp out with them if you can. Do what you can to spread the word. Tikkun Daily Blog | Full Article Here
First public planning meeting:
Tuesday, October 4th, 2011 @ 7:00 p.m. at Cask Republic on Crown Street in New Haven, CT.
We have requested info from the Connecticut ACLU on CT and New Haven protest laws/ordinances. Hopefully an email will come from them before the meeting. If not, it is not the end of the world. We were late to the party, so to speak, so it will just take us longer to set up than New York or Boston or Chicago.

"Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus said in a statement that she is "pleased" that a state investigation found that her counting error in last spring's Supreme Court race was simply "an honest mistake." We have no doubt that it was, but Nickolaus needs to pay attention to a couple of other items in the documents released this week.
She should be focusing on rebuilding the trust of voters by detailing to the public just what she's doing to avoid future mistakes." Full Article Here- JSOnline

Occupy Wall Street is leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%. The original call for this occupation was published by Adbusters in July; since then, many individuals across the country have stepped up to organize this event, such as the people of the NYC General Assembly and US Day of Rage. There'll also be similar occupations in the near future such as October2011 in Freedom Plaza, Washington D.C.
On the world-historical importance of living occupation as a method of struggle.
Share this with anyone and everyone in any form. Put it up anywhere and everywhere. Translate it into other languages. Most importantly, stay strong brothers and sisters!

The finest journalism I've seen yet about Occupy Wall St.
"If the police think we’ll go home just because they’re making things difficult, then the police don’t know how difficult things are at home. I’m eating better here, with all the donations and stuff. Back in 2008, I was so depressed that I wanted to kill myself. The only thing that stopped me was I couldn’t figure out how to do it without hurting my family."
This is happening right now in our country, and around the world. Get to Wall Street, or find an occupation near you at occupytogether.org

What's Behind the Scorn for the Wall Street Protests? | Common Dreams
by Glenn Greenwald
"But for those who believe that protests are only worthwhile if they translate into quantifiable impact: the lack of organizational sophistication or messaging efficacy on the part of the Wall Street protest is a reason to support it and get involved in it, not turn one's nose up at it and join in the media demonization. That's what one actually sympathetic to its messaging (rather than pretending to be in order more effectively to discredit it) would do. Anyone who looks at mostly young citizens marching in the street protesting the corruption of Wall Street and the harm it spawns, and decides that what is warranted is mockery and scorn rather than support, is either not seeing things clearly or is motivated by objectives other than the ones being presented."

Glenn Greenwald was previously a constitutional law and civil rights litigator in New York. He is the author of the New York Times Bestselling book "How Would a Patriot Act?," a critique of the Bush administration's use of executive power, released in May 2006. His second book, "A Tragic Legacy", examines the Bush legacy. His next book is titled "With Liberty and Justice for Some: How the Law Is Used to Destroy Equality and Protect the Powerful."

Meeting Notes PM GA – 09/27/11
"In light of occupy philidelphia – I’ve been worked with improptue working group If you want to be part of this new working group, meet us after GA. WE want to talk about spreading movement to other occupied cities. Possible DC march or occupation.
I am going up in the following weeks to help set up occupy Boston. And want to start writing a manifesto if you will for how to set up GA s to plan for occupations. If interested, or any of the committes that are related, I want to speak to you.
" We are going to go through a participatory process to develop these demands and visions together. It is very important that all voices are heard and we tried our best to make a process that includes all kinds of people equally. We should look at these demands as a way to include more ideas, not limit ideas, so that more people can find there home in this movement – we acknowledge that some people really want no demands at all. Its important for the sake of this movement to have some demands and visions voiced. But in the process we will continue to record that there are people who what no demands. So this process will include people who do not want demands. This process is important for outreach – so we can invite people from different communities, so we can amplify their demands – so that liberty plaza can become a place to discuss restructuring society. We can add demands as this movement progresses. A lot of people cannot be here – so we will have other ways for people to participate.

The Revolution Begins at Home: A Clarion Call to Join the Wall Street Protests | | AlterNet
"..., there are endless objections one can make. But if we focus on the possibilities, and shed our despair, our hesitancy and our cynicism, and collectively come to Wall Street with critical thinking, ideas and solidarity we can change the world.
How many times in your life do you get a chance to watch history unfold, to actively participate in building a better society, to come together with thousands of people where genuine democracy is the reality and not a fantasy?
For too long our minds have been chained by fear, by division, by impotence. The one thing the elite fear most is a great awakening. That day is here. Together we can seize it. ...We all need to go down and join the occupation -- ...". Read Full Article Here | AlterNet
As Scorn for Vote Grows, Protests Surge Around Globe - NYTimes.com
"from South Asia to the heartland of Europe and now even to Wall Street, these protesters share something else: wariness, even contempt, toward traditional politicians and the democratic political process they preside over."

Reading the NYC General Assembly minutes will not only keep you updated on the happenings with our brothers and sisters at Occupy Wall St., it could also give you an idea of the issues and questions that might need to be addressed at the solidarity actions around the world.

Interesting perspective on Occupy Wall St.
It's unsurprising that establishment media outlets have been condescending, dismissive and scornful of the ongoing protests on Wall Street. Any entity that declares itself an adversary of prevailing institutional power is going to be viewed with hostility by establishment-serving institutions and t...

Where are these pilots going? To occupy Wall Street! http://www.flickr.com/photos/z
Powerful words, albeit an unfortunate distraction from the aim of the protests, which are meant to draw attention not to the crimes of police, but to those of the much bigger bullies in the financial sector, who are once again getting away unpunished and unobserved:
Cornel West Speaks Truth to Power: If you are not talking about the criminal activity on Wall Street & you are not telling the truth. (Video) | AmpedStatus
Some truth hits US television sets. Cornel West once again exposes Obama as the bankster puppet that he is. In the last minute of this video, Cornel says that escalating civil disobedience, like what is happening on Wall Street right now, is necessary to wake the country up.
