Tweet went out awhile ago, the nydp took the gas sitting beside the generator that is running Global Revolution's livestream. Global revolution asking for someone to bring them gas.

In the morning people were arrested for writing on the sidewalk with chalk:

Cops say they support the protesters but are concerned about someone smoking near a gas can:

Arrests started @7:30 a.m. cops took down tents/tarps (rain) Lawyer showed up pro bono saying okay for tarps etc.

Still nothing on CBC Radio 1 news but was pleased to see the UK Guardian covering it.

On this NYT blog, the comments are very heartening.

Thanks for that summary, Antonia, and for your reports, Toe. It has not been clear what was happening there.

Amy Goodman @ the Guardian

to add - sheesh a helluvalot going on in the world today, plus a frikken size bus piece of space junk is coming down, won't know when between Thurs-Sat., will know one hour beforehand  :o


About $2,000 was donated for the Livestream, best buy open 24 hours, plus bail for the media guru, so livestream back up and running in about 30 minutes. Apparently nypd took signs away from protesters this a.m., but they have a art committee, so they'll have more a.s.a.p. Buses coming in, car pools coming in, disabled firefighters from 9/11 etc. Haven't heard much from the wobblies yet.

Wobblies - An Industrial Workers of the World NYC-GMB representative would come to address Occupy Wall Street.   The time was set for 12:30 p.m. today.   The IWW would send their workers and the children of their workers for an evening march of solidarity tomorrow, Thursday, September 23.

Science guy on CBC said the earth is mostly water and it's most likely to splash down in an ocean somewhere.

Mostly water, indeed, one hour notice, I think that's called Hoping.


Has anyone seen Matt Damon's docu Inside Job? Apparently the Oct. 6th Stop The Machine Protest in Washington, twitters are asking as many people as possible to view it, so they can arrive peaceful, but mad as hell.

I've tried to find it on the web without much luck, gone from youtube and takedown notices on the usual sites where you'd expect it.  I finally did find it, but on some obscure website I've never heard of nor really wish to revisit, but if you want to listen/see it go here: http://www.lambslain.com/2011/09/matt-damon-video-explaining-bernankes.html
It is English with Spanish subtitles, if you find it somewhere else, please let me know, tx.
