A Look at the Day's News, Opinions and Stories of the Protests on Wall Street and Beyond


Huffington Post (Jason Cherkis): Oakland police critically injure Iraq war vet during Occupy march

In Oakland, Calif., the local police's use of force seriously injured an Occupy activist and Iraq War veteran. Scott Olsen, 24, remains sedated on a respirator, in stable but critical condition at Oakland’s Highland Hospital after being hit in the head with a police projectile.

Fox News (Jana Winter): ACORN playing behind the scenes role in OWS

The former New York office for ACORN, the disbanded community activist group, is playing a key role in the self-proclaimed “leaderless” Occupy Wall Street movement, organizing “guerrilla” protest events and hiring door-to-door canvassers to collect money under the banner of various causes while spending it on protest-related activities, sources tell

NY Times (Jesse McKinley, Abby Goodnough): Cities begin cracking down on ‘Occupy’ protests

After weeks of accepting the demonstrations spawned by Occupy Wall Street, some cities have run out of patience. Here in Oakland, in a scene reminiscent of the antiwar protests of the 1960s, the police filled downtown streets with tear gas late Tuesday to stop throngs of protesters from re-entering a City Hall plaza that had been cleared of their encampment earlier in the day.

Huffington Post (Matt Sledge): Occupy Wall Street erects a Tent City in Zuccotti Park

A little more than a month ago, when the occupation of Zuccotti Park was in its early days, the New York City Police Department was not in the business of letting protesters pitch tents. Now, more than a month into the occupation, protesters have turned a full city block in the heart of Lower Manhattan into a campground.

Buffalo News (Robert J. McCarthy): Occupy Buffalo urges city to avoid Chase, cites foreclosures

Occupy Buffalo moved its Niagara Square protest into City Hall on Tuesday as a host of groups accused JPMorgan Chase Bank of aggressively pursuing foreclosures rather than working with residents facing hard times.

BusinessWeek (Mark Gimein): 60 Wall Street: The real headquarters of OWS

Advertised less is that the de facto headquarters of the protest isn’t in the park. It’s four blocks away in the atrium of 60 Wall Street, also—this is a level of irony that’s nearly surreal—the US headquarters of Deutsche Bank.

Salon (David Sirota): Will demonizing OWS win elections?

For a few weeks now, national Republican Party leaders have been insulting the Occupy Wall Street movement as everything from “dangerous… class warfare” to “mobs… pitting of Americans against Americans” to “an attack on freedom.” These general rhetorical attacks attempt to distract from the fundamental — and wildly popular — messages of OWS. It’s a bait-and-switch that harkens back to the tactics of Richard Nixon.

Downtown Express (Cynthia Magnus): OWS creates special space for parents and children

Approximately 50 parents and children spent Friday night, Oct. 21, in Zuccotti Park as part of a “Parents for Occupy Wall Street” event that took place in a special, cordoned-off area of the park near the Joie de Vivre sculpture. Originally planned for Oct. 14, the slumber party was postponed in the face of the O.W.S. eviction by park owner Brookfield Properties. Several hundred parents and children participated in kid-friendly activities during the day.

Associated Press: Occupy (write name here): Protests supply the world with its latest catchphrase

Occupy Wall Street, meet Occupy the Bar. The nearly 6-week-old social protest in Manhattan has inspired campaigns, headlines and spoofs that often have nothing to do with income inequality or challenging corporate overlords: Occupy the NBA and Occupy the Bathroom are just a couple.

Huffington Post (Harmon Leon): Occupy Wall Street: The Brand!

You have to figure it was only a matter of time before it happened.  According to CNN, a Long Island couple wants to trademark the slogan "Occupy Wall Street" with the intent to sell sweatshirts, t-shirts, bumper stickers and hobo bags.

BusinessWeek (Drake Bennett): David Graeber, the anti-leader of Occupy Wall Street

David Graeber likes to say that he had three goals for the year: promote his book, learn to drive, and launch a worldwide revolution. The first is going well, the second has proven challenging, and the third is looking up.

Huffington Post (Bob Cesca): Occupy Wall Street isn't anti-corporation, it's anti-corporate crime

I've been listening to right-wing talk radio quite a bit lately. No, I'm not changing sides, and I'm not serving penance for a brutal crime. But I occasionally get caught up in talk radio's Death Star tractor beam and subsequently drawn into its psychotic docking bay of crazy.

NY Post (Rosenberg, Schram, Fredericks): Rikers cons flood Zuccotti for free eats

Newly sprung ex-cons and vagrants rousted from other parks are crashing the Occupy Wall Street protest, where gourmet meals are free and boozy, drug­fueled parties are on tap, the movement’s leaders griped yesterday.
