A look at the day's news, opinions and stories of the protests on Wall Street and beyond


Wall Street Journal (Suzanne Kapner): Credit unions poach big bank clients


Thousands of people flooded into credit unions and small banks over the weekend as part of "Bank Transfer Day," an effort to prod depositors to abandon giant banks. But at least some of the big banks won't mind losing those customers.

NY Daily News (Ken Lovett): Cuomo: I don’t need Occupy movement to tell me people are scared 

Gov. Cuomo dissed the Occupy movements while saying he feels no more pressure about the millionaire’s tax than he did last session.


Huffington Post (News editors): Toilets bring relief to protesters at Zuccotti


They may still be laboring to change the quality of life for the 99 percent, but Wall Street protesters have made some progress near their Manhattan park encampment: They now have toilets.


NY Post (Helen Freund, Todd Venezia): Zuccotti protesters put up women-only tent


It’s a safe house from the sex fiends. Zuccotti Park has become so overrun by sexual predators attacking women in the night that organizers felt compelled to set up a female-only sleeping tent yesterday to keep the sickos away.


NY Post (Nicole Gelinas): Time to let Wall Street fail


Last week, an amazing thing happened: Free markets did their job of disciplining finance. That should happen more often. The reason it doesn’t is that neither party in Washington is willing to make it happen.

NY Times (Cara Buckley, Colin Moynihan): Occupy Wall Street reaches a crossroads

The signs seemed to point toward the end of Occupy Wall Street. The day after the city stripped the protesters encamped in Lower Manhattan of their generators and fuel, the Northeast was hit with a bone-chilling snowstorm that blanketed their tents and tarps with sleet and ice, and left at least one protester hospitalized for hypothermia. Yet the encampment at Zuccotti Park endured.


NY Times (Arthur Brisbane): OWS: How should it be covered now?


The Occupy Wall Street movement has certainly generated a lot of ink and bytes. Seven weeks into it, the journalistic challenge of covering it has probably grown in complexity. It is not simply a matter of covering the events attending to the individual protests in New York and scattered around the country. There are larger themes to address.


Associated Press: OWS protesters fare better than Wall Streeters in latest poll


A new national poll released Sunday shows neither Wall Street nor Occupy Wall Street conjuring up strong favorable impressions among the American public.

Associated Press: Driver who hit Occupy DC protesters won’t be charged


Police said early Saturday that a driver will not be charged for striking three people taking part in an Occupy DC protest in downtown Washington.

NY Daily News (Caulfield): Vancouver mayor vows to shut down ‘Occupy’ after suspected overdose


The mayor of Vancouver is vowing to crack down on his city’s “Occupy” protest after a woman died of a suspected drug overdose on Saturday, just days after another man barely survived a heroin O.D. at the tent city, officials said.

NY Post (Rappleye, Fenton, Fredericks): Occupy until ‘2025’!


Now they want to Occupy the Future. Determined Occupy Wall Street demonstrators have vowed they’re not leaving Zuccotti Park anytime soon, and their online agenda suggests they mean business -- with events scheduled through Oct. 26, 2025.


NY Post (Celona, Schram, Conley): It’s crime all the time at Zuccotti Park


Tent City is becoming Camp Crime. Occupy Wall Street squatters at Zuccotti Park have been busted in recent weeks for incidents ranging from petty thefts to menacing threats and from low-life drug sales to sicko sex attacks, law-enforcement sources told The Post.


NY Post (Candice Giove): Post reporter spends night at Zuccotti


It’s a leaderless bazaar that’s been divided into state-like camps -- with tents packed together so densely that the only way to add more would be to stack them. And despite an NYPD watchtower overhead and the entire north side of Zuccotti lined with police vehicles, it is quickly becoming one of the most dangerous places in New York City.

Marketwatch (Jon Friedman): OWS dogs Bloomberg: Mayor in no-win situation


I’d love to be a fly on the wall when New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg discusses Occupy Wall Street in his unguarded moments. I bet the protesters are driving him batty. That’s because the people’s populist movement has put Bloomberg in a no-win situation. If he shows overt support for Wall Street, the populist movement would proclaim him an elitist and his standing among ordinary New Yorkers would crumble.

NY Daily News (Jimmy Breslin): Protesters are not uncouth pack some would believe

I am starting the day reading the paper while I’m walking to the subway to go downtown to cheer a new gathering of the Wall Street protesters. The entire city is just starting to be convinced that these crowds are going to change things and forever. Just follow the numbers and energy of the people.

Huffington Post (Benjamin Barber): OWS: We are what Democracy looks like!


Given how extraordinarily successful it has been both in its own terms and in its capacity to grab the attention of the media, Occupy Wall Street has been conveniently misunderstood by its supporters and detractors alike. 


NY Daily News (Kerry Willis, Jefferson Siegel): Veterinarians lend a hand at Zuccotti


Dogged supporters of Occupy Wall Street are getting some free medical care – thanks to volunteer veterinarians at Zuccotti Park.


NY Daily News (Jonathan Lemire, Kim Stack): Batman occupies Wall Street

Violence descended on Wall Street Saturday – but, thankfully, Batman was there to save the day.
