This is an image I captured in 2009. It was a little later in the year...long about November. Every year, I keep thinking "it's over" when, indeed, the color is only beginning. That's what it feels like today with the protests...it's quiet, but that doesn't mean things aren't brewing. Last night's arrests in Boston at the Veterans for Peace demonstration, give voice to the fact that this Movement, this activism, is not a passing meteor shower. We must stay tuned for further developments...
And on that note, here are some ways to do that:
This link gives a broad overview to events as they have unfolded and are unfolding.
The Occupy Wall Street Press at http://paper.li/occupymanhattan/1317517749
is updated every 12 hours and they have reporters on the street gathering stories.
Sleeping bags are needed at the New York OWS. They've put out repeated requests for sleeping bags, but have received few. If you've got bags you can donate, it will help greatly. New ones, too, if you're inclined. If you know where OWS could purchase some at wholesale prices, let them now. Send any bags to:
118a Fulton Street #205
New York, New York 10038

Here is an interesting link. If you haven't heard of Jacque Fresco, have a look at this YouTube video which was in the Occupy Wall Street Press yesterday, reposted from an earlier conversation with the Russia Today host last February, I believe.
Occupy Wall Street is a good group, too, making efforts to reveal another "face" of the protests. Have a look at their website at:
Same can be said for Occupy Together at http://www.occupytogether.org/
It's mid-week, and some DO have jobs, or classes, to tend and attend...it's looking like the protesters are staging a marching tour of Billionnaire homes in downtown Manhattan sometime in the next little while; also looks as though various groups are working to go global with global-wide protest on October 15th. (Check out the Spanish protests on the You Tube video on Occupy Wall Street Press. All plans are in the developing stages. To keep track, tap into any of the above websites I've listed. Disregard the MSM. Not worth reading. Keith Olbermann, Naomi Klein and Amy Goodman (Democracy Now) are the places to be...in that vein, check out this video from Amy's program last night:
