OWS interview day 12

I don't remember doing this interview and had no idea it existed online.  I found it while hunting links to recreate my In The Press page after the destruction of the previous version of this site. 

Thank You PFail Blog.  I would have thanked you earlier, but I just watched it a minute ago.  ;~)

#S17 #OWS Birthday Party

One year ago a small group of predominantly Anarchists sparked a horizontally organized movement to level the playing field in the game of Corporations -vs- The People of the United States.  Today we celebrated our success and contemplated our future.  We licked old wounds and created new ones.  We turned a critical eye to the process that has guided us and acknowledged it's short comings so that our second year of existence will be one of effectiveness even if it means dropping the verb.  To Occupy.

#OWS S15 Pedestrian Bloc

500 or more Occupy revelers march from Washington Square Park to their former home in Zucotti to kick off the Occupied Anniversary Party. 26 were arrested mostly through snatch and grab terrorist tactics.  Those arrested had done nothing wrong, were walking peacefully on the sidewalk with their friends. Squads of terrorists pushed through the peaceful crowd to man handle and steal people.
