Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

Occupy LA's facebook is still going - rallies being planned and live feed of the general assembly linked to: https://www.facebook.com/occupyLA (twenty seven minutes ago as of 8:18pm PST)
I'll see what else I can find.

There was some good stuff trending on Twitter under #portshutdown. Last I heard, Seattle and LA have voted to continue the shutdown due to violence used by law enforcement.

In spite of that, Occupy is doing ok.

What do you mean?

In spite of the mainstream media smearing or not covering Occupy, they've got decent turn out for their major actions (for example, the port shutdown was fairly successful) and continually have stuff simmering out of the public eye that anyone can jump into.

Did you think I meant in spite of the anti-corporate sentiment Occupy is doing ok?  :crankey:


Here's a quick sample of the two main terminals Occupy Portland shut down:

Are there plans for further rounds of protests in New York, LA etc?

I'll admit, I haven't exactly gone looking, but I haven't heard much about the response to the shutdown of the protests and what the next move is.

This is something I ran across...might be interesting. Gives time for planning being that it's a month away.

I wonder if it's any coincidence that the failure of winter to end the occupy movements coincided with Obama's decision not to veto the "defense" bill.

I don't think so.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

That's just your bad attitude.  I am sure they are unconnected.  Citizen.

"I am a US citizen" just doesn't carry the ring of safety it once did.

question
how long do you think it is till those in the occupy movement are labeled as terrorists?
Through me the way to the city of woe, Through me the way to everlasting pain, Through me the way among the lost.
Justice moved my maker on high.
Divine power made me, Wisdom supreme, and Primal love.
Before me nothing was but things eternal, and eternal I endure.
Abandon all hope, you who enter here.

Before year's end, I think.  Certainly no later than the new "defense" bill's provisions come into effect.

It would seem London got there first:

Some very interesting tactical analysis of the PDX Occupy faction. I think Net may have hinted at this earlier.
