"If you can’t Occupy Wall Street, You Can At Least Keep Wall Street Occupied"

"Artie Moffa wanted to occupy Wall Street, but his day job was getting in the way. Instead, the San Franciscan poet and SAT tutor devised a way he could keep Wall Street occupied from the comfort of his home and office."

Let’s all do this, everybody!

Where Do We Go From Here? Occupy Wall St. from Ed David on Vimeo.

“Where do we go from here?” by Ed David (via OccupyWallSt)

“Even if nothing else happens here, even if everyone goes home today, it’s enough because what started here is going to continue in other ways and I think it’s going to continue in other ways we can’t predict.”

Everything the Media Told You About Occupy Wall Street is Wrong

"As you can see from the image below, the only mess on Wall Street came  from the police horses standing guard in front of the New York Stock  Exchange."
Oh the irony.

“Just because you’re not on Wall Street doesn’t mean you’re not affected  by what they do and the decisions that they make,” said Daniel  Saltzman, 23, who was cited on a charge of criminal trespass over the  weekend at Occupy Tucson. “Unfortunately, we don’t have the money to fly  to New York, but we still can make a difference in our community.”         - The Occupy Movement’s Common Thread: We’re Angry

At Zuccotti Park, A People’s Library

Amid one of the most dynamic political events in recent American history lies one of the most harmonious of places – a library.
Occupy Wall Street has become known for its animated protests and run-ins with police, but walk inside Zuccotti Park – the movement’s unofficial headquarters – and you get a different story. Organizers have created a medical center, food station, and donation drop-off point. But it’s “The People’s Library” that has become an example of the group’s mission and outside support.  
“The library is a demonstration of the fact we aren’t just a bunch of crazies,” said Stephen Boyer, 27, who volunteers there. “Were trying to build a community and we’re succeeding.” (Read more)

CBC reporter Kevin O’Leary calls Chris Hedges a “Left Wing Nutbar,” Chris Hedges proceeds to make O’Leary look like even more of a complete idiot.

"O’Leary: Repoter: So, what exactly is everybody complaining about? And also, give me a sense of how much momentum this movement has, because it looks pretty nothing-burger so far. Just a few guys, guitars, nobody knows that they want, they can’t even name the names of the firm’s that they’re protesting against. Very weak. Low budget.

Hedges: They know precisely what they want. They want to reverse the corporate coup that’s taken place in the United States and render the citizenry impotent and they won’t stop until that happens. And frankly, if we don’t break the back of corporations, we’re all finished anyway since they’re rapidly trashing the ecosystem on which the human species depends for survival. This is literally a fight for life. It’s that grave, it’s that serious. Corporations, unfettered capitalism, as Karl Marx understood, is a revolutionary force. It commodifies everything; human beings, the natural world, which it exploits for profit until exhaustion or collapse. And the bottom line is we don’t have much time left.

Mumford & Sons- Dustbowl Dance

"Well you are my accuser, now look in my face
Your oppression reeks of your greed and disgrace
So one man has and another has not
How can you love what it is you have got
When you took it all from the weak hands of the poor?
Liars and thieves you know not what is in store.”

The students invited him to join their camp and he accepted, borrowing a  sleeping bag from the site’s “Comfort station.” Shortly thereafter, he  made a cardboard sign, which now sits next to him, that says, “I have a full-time union job—don’t tell me get a job!” He carries  it in short marches and sometimes stands holding it up on the perimeter  of the park.
Wasnieski has been an ironworker for more than two  years now and has been working on the tower since January. Wasnieski  said that visitors to the World Trade Center, on the whole, have been  more receptive to his work on the W.T.C. site than to his presence on  Zuccotti Park.
"All I heard was, ‘Get a job! Get a job!’" said Wasnieski. "And I was like, ‘I got a job.’"

The People’s Library at Occupy Wall Street

It doesn’t seem likely that the site of a large protest would be a suitable place for reading quietly. Which is why you might be surprised to find that Zuccotti park, home of the Occupy Wall Street protests, has its very own public library and that many protestors can be found with their noses buried in books, reading and occupying all at the same time.
