Sad to hear, unfortunately Occupy Indianapolis suffered a similar couple of incidents. Carl Levinson is a local 1%er who got involved from the first day of the kickoff rally October 8th and successfully stole donated items, the food and attempted to hijack the web operations but I successfully thwarted his efforts. However, in the process he created major divisions which have forced the occupation here to fall apart quickly. I hope NOLA can stay strong and recover from this, if you need IT support I can be called on in Indianapolis to help. Solidarity!

Important message about Occupy NOLA: The FB page 'Occupy New Orleans', as well as the Twitter, WePay account, and the site were all hijacked over a week ago by Joe Cripple (aka Joe Smoe) who doesn't go to the occupation site. He gathers info on the net and posts it so that the site seems to be operating normally. He has blocked anyone that is telling the truth about this from posting, including most of the actual members of the occupation. He is attempting to control/sabotage the movement and has stolen funds & equipment. He has also recently dissolved our WePay account and been using the old social media accounts to harass and threaten members of the movement.

We have created a new FB: |
A new website: |

Please 'like' the new, real page, post this message to the wall of your friends who "like" Occupy New Orleans and help us spread the word. Solidarity.
