#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!

the point isnt to just accept what is going on because compared to other countries we still got it good. That is a sorry excuse for what it used to mean to be american. Where is your the pride in freedom. And as a matter of fact, it isnt so great here compared to Most Modernized Societies. We have the highest incarseration rate in the world per capita; over 750 per 100,000. Its right up there with soviet russia before ww2 wich was 800 per 100,000. because we have privatized prison even. even putting people in jail is corporate run and driven by money, not justice.
so to say 'if you dont like it here you should just try living somewhere else and see how bad it can be' is ignorant to what liberty and the persuite of happieness really means.

I believe we better adopt a non-aggressive language. Instead of "anti" "occupy", "take" and "rage", we shall use words depicting our targets: "dignity", "honesty", "free", "hope", "future" .

I have to agree with you.. If any of this is to be taken seriously, ditch the black bandanas and the Anarchy shtick, success of this message will only come with the inclusion of the populous as a whole.
