I have to agree that you will get trapped arrested if you stage any

kind of protest in an indoor atrium, especially that one.

&gt;&gt; ok-- can added to this be the dispersion technique?



&gt;&gt; "There are worse things than not getting to have another large


&gt;&gt; protest in the streets of New York that accomplishes little.

It has

&gt;&gt; been done before. According to New York City law, permits are

&gt;&gt; necessary for groups of more than 20 to gather legally in


&gt;&gt; parks—so why not gather in groups of 19? Why not conduct

small, legal,

&gt;&gt; and still powerful actions like those that #occupywallstreet


&gt;&gt; have been conducting throughout this week, such as yoga

classes where

&gt;&gt; Wall meets Broad and declaring guerrilla free-speech zones

with free

&gt;&gt; wireless internet access? What if this were happening on every


&gt;&gt; in the city, for weeks at a time?


&gt;&gt; These days, nobody is more masterful with dispersion tactics


&gt;&gt; those behind the Jasmine Revolution in China. Working in an

&gt;&gt; environment of extreme, ruthless oppression, they’ve learned

to be

&gt;&gt; very creative. Their signature move is the so-called


&gt;&gt; protest: large numbers of people gather at a public place,


&gt;&gt; over the internet, and walk around innocently, looking up at


&gt;&gt; buildings and ignoring each other. Obviously, there’s a


&gt;&gt; happening, because there’s a huge crowd of people in one

place, and a

&gt;&gt; phalanx of police are watching. But how do you distinguish a


&gt;&gt; from a bystander? You don’t. You can’t, really. You’ve

created a

&gt;&gt; disruption, but no targets, and no actual illegality.


&gt;&gt; people become less afraid to resist when they know that others


&gt;&gt; with them."


&gt;&gt; Activities can be planned, people are inconveniencing the

bank, it

&gt;&gt; would be safer, I can't stomach 13 yr olds getting arrested

again. The

&gt;&gt; NYPD has proven themselves to be mean. There should be a softer

&gt;&gt; approach... and it will bring more sympathy to the movement if

it is

&gt;&gt; peaceful action.

&gt;&gt;&gt; Occupy Wall Street October 15th Call to Action Against


&gt;&gt;&gt; --------------------------------------

&gt;&gt;&gt; The time has come to fight the banks.


&gt;&gt;&gt; We call on fellow occupiers and those who stand in

solidarity to join

&gt;&gt;&gt; us in moving from protest to resistance


&gt;&gt;&gt; No longer will banks take our homes.


&gt;&gt;&gt; No longer will banks rob students of our future.


&gt;&gt;&gt; No longer will banks destroy the environment.


&gt;&gt;&gt; No longer will banks fund the misery of war.


&gt;&gt;&gt; No longer will banks cause massive unemployment.

&gt;&gt;&gt; And no longer will banks create and profit from economic


&gt;&gt;&gt; without a struggle.


&gt;&gt;&gt; The political system has been corrupted and taken over by


&gt; Street.

&gt;&gt;&gt; The banks have destroyed our economy and captured our


&gt;&gt;&gt; Occupy Wall Street is a part of a global movement. On

Oct. 15th and

&gt;&gt;&gt; beyond, we will take our message directly to the banks.


&gt;&gt;&gt; This saturday, visit your local Bank of America, Wells

Fargo, or

&gt; Chase

&gt;&gt;&gt; and let them know, we will not allow business as usual.


&gt;&gt;&gt; We.


&gt;&gt;&gt; Will.


&gt;&gt;&gt; Occupy.


&gt;&gt;&gt; Everywhere

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Of course, it's nice to have some breathing room, but

we're in this

&gt; for the

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; long haul. There are no "solutions" that can be

presented quickly

presence is no

&gt; longer an

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; uncomfortable and unknown variable, but rather is

normalized and

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; integrated.

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; It's in those moments that we have to push the

envelop, pry open

&gt; the space

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; of possibility even farther. We go as far as we can to


&gt; but

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; maintain support and momentum. And when that's the new

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; it again, we push further.

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; That's how change happens, how we shift the terrain

and the terms

&gt; of the

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; game. I hope that we can get information out as soon

as possible

&gt; about ways

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; to plug into the international day of action, this

Saturday October

&gt; 15. And

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; that we continue to expand and take new space and

spread and lead

&gt; the way.
