it would be a shame if we didn't get into suits and co-opt this action (if it isn't ours already).

this might be the easiest wall to get onto wall street this afternoon!

who's game? i'm at nyu right now spreading the word with the yes men about our camp, so can't coordinate.

just one thing: let's not set this up as a confrontation. maybe have a few dressed-up "hippies" there to stoke the fire, but emphasis should be on the counter-protest

My guess is no one will be there.  It's just a stupid joke.  Look at the nasty comment I got on my blog post about Mariel Moshiri.  I won't let it through moderation because her mother says she's really depressed and it might upset her more.  I don't want her to see it.  The mere fact some random person took the time to write at this length is disturbing:

Well Gail won't post my other comment. Apparently she's not as big of a fan of free speech as she would purport. Maybe she'll send this on to you though Mariel. 

The clip clearly shows you swearing like a drunken sailor, threatening to sue right from the get go. The language continues on here. If you get confrontational with a cop in a potentially volatile situation you run the risk of being arrested. I'm glad you cooperated once at the station, apparently the fact that they didn't let you go simply because you swore at them and told them you would sue must have made you realize it was time to wise up.

I'm sure you hate the system that we have set up in America but you seem very ready to use that system to sue the NYPD for all that they have. Good luck with that, your top 10% IQ clearly doesn't allow for self-reflection as if you see the hypocrite that you are.

A cop screamed you were suicidal? I will 100% guarantee that did not happen. Possibly in your head but not in reality. You didn't know where you were? Well that will happen on your big day out in the big city where you act in a way where the police have end up placing you in custody.

NYPD is a great department. A lot of them died in the towers that used to cast a shadow over the area where you were arrested. Whatever you think the reason was for that day those people that died were just working stiffs trying to get home to their families that day and it didn't happen. They try to do that everyday and make a real impact on people and this world. Not a paper impact like you and your merry band of protesters made the other day. The reason they detained you was to help insure that they made it home that day as well. Remember that in the future as you exercise the rights provided to you by this American system, flaws and all, act with the decency expected of our citizens and you'll make it home yourself at the end of the night with your dignity and soundness of mind in tact.
