Occupy Everywhere

Occupy Together

Wow did Occupy WallStreet go viral! Are you following this?! It’s crazy, inspiring and revolutionary.

Some links:

From Adbusters:
“#OCCUPYWALLSTREET is a people powered movement for democracy that began in America on September 17 with an encampment in the financial district of New York City. Inspired by the Egyptian Tahrir Square uprising and the Spanish acampadas, we vow to end the monied corruption of our democracy … join us! We’re now in DAY 22.”

The above link also has a live stream of Occupy WallStreet.

From Occupy Together:
“Welcome to OCCUPY TOGETHER, an unofficial hub for all of the events springing up across the country in solidarity with Occupy Wall St. As we have followed the news on facebook, twitter, and the various live feeds across the internet, we felt compelled to build a site that would help spread the word as more protests organize across the world. We hope to provide people with information about events that are organizing, ongoing, and building across the U.S. as we, the 99%, take action against the greed and corruption of the 1%.”

Occupy Together has a lot of info on their site.

From Reddit:
OWS: The US vs International Media
“The limited coverage the Occupy Wall Street protest has had from US media has been dismissed on the claim that the protesters “lack a clear objective” other than to protest. This line is widely parroted.

AP via CBS, NPR, ABC, Forbes, Newsday, MSN Money, and many others.


vaslittlecrow made a great post that spells out why the US media coverage is currently dismissive, what to expect next, and how this movement may survive becoming the next “Tea Party”.

The media in the US is lying. The protesters are diverse, but have some general unifying objectives. The non-US media sees that.”

This is a great post to see how the international media is covering the protests.

From the Daily Kos:
Occupy Wall Street roundup, Day 21
“Today was a day when everyone had something to say about Occupy Wall Street”

Lots of links at the above post.

From Forbes:
Some Say Occupy Wall Street Protesters Aimless; Facts Say Otherwise
“There has been a lot said about the lack of vision, lack of specific demands, and a disparity of beliefs and goals among the Occupy Wall Street protesters in the media in the past several weeks. A survey of the protestors shows that none of these criticisms are true.”

There are some good statistics in this post.

    Forbes is a magazine that I would have guessed would not take OWS seriously. It is nice to be proven wrong on that one by this reporter.
