#OCCUPYWALLSTREET Orientation Guide

One final strategic push.

Good news culture jammers!

The weather forecast for tomorrow is partly cloudy skies and highs of 68°F. Nighttime temperatures will reach a low of 52°F. There is a small chance of rain later in the week. Bring, at minimum, warm clothing, sleeping bag, food, water and a tarp.

Saturday's occupation begins at noon in Bowling Green Park. The first people's assembly will start at 3 p.m. at One Chase Manhattan Plaza and continue until our one demand is agreed upon by all. Check out the full schedule of events.

A leaked bulletin from the New York Police Department reveals that they expect at least 5,000, and maybe even 20,000 people to swarm Wall Street tomorrow. That just might be enough for us to pull this off!

A telephone support line has been set up by occupywallst.org. For directions or help call (877) 881-3020 to speak with a local activist. For legal advice, or to report an arrest, call the National Lawyers Guild at (212) 679-6018.

Democracy Now!, Bloomberg News, the Washington Post and CNN covered #OCCUPYWALLSTREET today. The CNN article is a good summary.

When asked about the occupation, the mayor of New York City responded, "People have a right to protest, and if they want to protest, we’ll be happy to make sure they have locations to do it. As long as they do it where other people’s rights are respected, this is the place where people can speak their minds …"

Anonymous says they will release their new hacktivism tool at 7am in solidarity with #OCCUPYWALLSTREET.

While Michael Moore and the rest of the mainstream left continues to be largely silent about #OCCUPYWALLSTREET, American rapper Lupe Fiasco has been vocal in his support. Lupe has vowed to donate 50 tents to the occupation and has written a poem celebrating our efforts.

President Obama will be in New York City at a private $38,500 per person fundraising event on Monday, September 19th starting at 5:30 p.m. at 820 Park Avenue. Maybe we can go there and invite him to join our people's assembly?

For those who cannot attend one of the many solidarity events happening in Milan, Madrid, Valencia, London, Lisbon, Athens, San Francisco, Santander, Madison, Amsterdam, Los Angeles and now Algeria and Israel, there will be a live stream of events at: livestream.com/globalrevolution

This is your last chance to send a message to all your friends via Facebook, Twitter and phone asking them to join you tomorrow.

Good luck … Hang in there!

It's about time, the Banksters have just about gotten a free ride along with their undeserved bonuses. I told my spouse and friends back in early 2009 that the govt. should indict all of the top thieves. But the Cogressional hearings are held by politicians that are beholden to the donations from those thieves. So they got a walk. Taylor -Bean Co. a BIG sub-prime lender out of FLA. got indicted...I guess they didn't donate enough.There may have been a few other small mtge. originators that got whacked,but I haven't heard about them.
I'm a registered Independent voter, and will ashamedly admit to having voted for Dub'ya ( G.W. Bush ) twice...in retrospect - stupid! Back in his first term his Secty.of Treas., Paul O'neil, who had impressed me as being a straight shooter, resigned before the end of Bushy's first term. That struck me as odd, and recently I did a little checking online. STARTLING ! If you want an insiders view of Bushy's handlers- and the "shadow prez" Cheney...than buy "The Price of Loyalty" by Ron Suskind with Paul O'neil. Than you'll understand why we're in 2 wars, with Trillions $$$ of debt. Get it at the library, or at Barnes & Noble- the paperback is a couple bucks. God save the Republic.

Would like to participate but not in any major city--waaayyy out in the boondocks of Western Maryland. Could get to DC though. Why is DC not one of the cities slated for a demonstration?

This is a time of action, initiative, participation etc. Instead of asking Adbusters why DC isn't slated for a demonstration, perhaps ask yourself why you didn't offer to organize an event in DC? Then DC would be slated. Sometimes it just takes one person to step up.
