The number of Occupy Wall Street protesters arrested in New York has reached 300.


Several thousand people are still out near Brooklyn Bridge despite cold, rainy weather.


Seven police officers were injured and a number of protesters received minor injuries during the protest march.


Two people were hospitalized.


Hundreds of police have been summoned to downtown New York.


On Thursday, the protesters attempted to block the New York stock exchange and disrupt the work of the subway system.


The current protests are taking place two months after the start of the Occupy Wall Street  movement.

Now that the Occupy Wall Street encampment in lower Manhattan has been broken up, more attention is being focused on protests in California. Right now, tents are still up on the University of California Berkeley campus and in San Francisco. But both sites are proving to be flash points for confrontation. VOR West Coast correspondent Kevin Tripp reports that a little after 1 a.m. Wednesday morning San Francisco police made a surprise raid and tore down several tents that were blocking a part of the sidewalk along the city’s busy market street. Protesters responded by yanking metal barricades into the street.


"I'd love to open a tennis school for children in my hometown of Sochi." said Sharapova Maria.

La Marseillaise - English lyrics



Arise children of the fatherland
The day of glory has arrived
Against us tyranny's
Bloody standard is raised
Listen to the sound in the fields
The howling of these fearsome soldiers
They are coming into our midst
To cut the throats of your sons and consorts


To arms citizens Form your battalions
March, march
Let impure blood
Water our furrows


What do they want this horde of slaves
Of traitors and conspiratorial kings?
For whom these vile chains
These long-prepared irons?
Frenchmen, for us, ah! What outrage
What methods must be taken?
It is us they dare plan
To return to the old slavery!


What! These foreign cohorts!
They would make laws in our courts!
What! These mercenary phalanxes
Would cut down our warrior sons
Good Lord! By chained hands
Our brow would yield under the yoke
The vile despots would have themselves be
The masters of destiny


Tremble, tyrants and traitors
The shame of all good men
Tremble! Your parricidal schemes
Will receive their just reward
Against you we are all soldiers
If they fall, our young heros
France will bear new ones
Ready to join the fight against you


Frenchmen, as magnanimous warriors
Bear or hold back your blows
Spare these sad victims
That they regret taking up arms against us
But not these bloody despots
These accomplices of Bouillé
All these tigers who pitilessly
Ripped out their mothers' wombs


We too shall enlist
When our elders' time has come
To add to the list of deeds
Inscribed upon their tombs
We are much less jealous of surviving them
Than of sharing their coffins
We shall have the sublime pride
Of avenging or joining them


Drive on sacred patriotism
Support our avenging arms
Liberty, cherished liberty
Join the struggle with your defenders
Under our flags, let victory
Hurry to your manly tone
So that in death your enemies
See your triumph and our glory!

Nah. They stopped at the new Oakland camp (a vacant city-owned lot at 19th Street and Telegraph Avenue). Occupy facilitators talked with the viewers on the Livestream chat line.

Correctly or not, certainly equations will be drawn with the larger scale events going down now in Tahrir Square in Cairo.


http://www.youtube.com/w...bedded&v=5Q52fyVius4  


Many believe the worst Yankee police behavior is unprecedented. 


http://www.forbes.com/si...occupy-the-police-state/ 


It is NOT unprecedented--just this young generation has been deprived of much of REAL American history. The prettyfied version serves analysis not so well.


But particular comparisons--shutdown of wireless towers in SF last night, the blatant attacks on even their own lapdog press, etc--are worth dwelling on. But the immediate paramount focus for Occupy in the US has to be the proposed West Coast port shutdown in three weeks:



Occupy Oakland Calls for TOTAL WEST COAST PORT SHUTDOWN ON 12/12


November 19, 2011  



 Proposal for a Coordinated West Coast Port Shutdown, Passed With Unanimous Consensus by vote of the Occupy Oakland General Assembly 11/18/2012:


In response to coordinated attacks on the occupations and attacks on workers across the nation:


Occupy Oakland calls for the blockade and disruption of the economic apparatus of the 1% with a coordinated shutdown of ports on the entire West Coast on December 12th.   The 1% has disrupted the lives of longshoremen and port truckers and the workers who create their wealth, just as coordinated nationwide police attacks have turned our cities into battlegrounds in an effort to disrupt our Occupy movement.


We call on each West Coast occupation to organize a mass mobilization to shut down its local port.  Our eyes are on the continued union-busting and attacks on organized labor, in particular the rupture of Longshoremen jurisdiction in LongviewWashington by the EGT.   Already, Occupy Los Angeles has passed a resolution to carry out a port action on the Port Of Los Angeles on December 12th, to shut down SSA terminals, which are owned by Goldman Sachs.


Occupy Oakland expands this call to the entire West Coast, and calls for continuing solidarity with the Longshoremen in Longview Washington in their ongoing struggle against the EGT.  The EGT is an international grain exporter led by Bunge LTD, a company constituted of 1% bankers whose practices have ruined the lives of the working class all over the world, from Argentina to the West Coast of the US.  During the November 2nd General Strike, tens of thousands shutdown the Port Of Oakland as a warning shot to EGT to stop its attacks on Longview.  Since the EGT has disregarded this message, and continues to attack the Longshoremen at Longview, we will now shut down ports along the entire West Coast.



  • Participating occupations are asked to ensure that during the port shutdowns the local arbitrator rules in favor of longshoremen not crossing community picket lines in order to avoid recriminations against them.

  • Should there be any retaliation against any workers as a result of their honoring pickets or supporting our port actions, additional solidarity actions should be prepared.

  • In the event of police repression of any of the mobilizations, shutdown actions may be extended to multiple days.


In Solidarity and Struggle,


Occupy Oakland


-In Oakland: the West Coast Port Shutdown Coordinating Committee will meet on General Assembly days at 5pm (PST) before the GA to organize the local shutdown, and to network with other occupations.


(Oakland GA days are Mon, Wed, Fri & Sun. Given OO's penchant for streaming, some of this may be viewable on the next day at 01:00 GMT. Certainly proposals & info at the GAs two hours later on those days.

Good vid. That consciousness exists now. It's not yet huge or overwhelming but it IS there.


Difference is this: it was there in the past, but shouted down, suppressed. Now it's clearly expressed.

The shocking truth about the crackdown on Occupy


The violent police assaults across the US are no coincidence. Occupy has touched the third rail of our political class's venality. 


Naomi Wolf guardian.co.uk, Friday 25 November 2011 12.25 EST 


http://www.guardian.co.u...ackdown-occupy?fb=optOut 


 


For the terrible insight to take away from news that the Department of Homeland Security coordinated a violent crackdown is that the DHS does not freelance. The DHS cannot say, on its own initiative, "we are going after these scruffy hippies". Rather, DHS is answerable up a chain of command: first, to New York Representative Peter King, head of the House homeland security subcommittee, who naturally is influenced by his fellow congressmen and women's wishes and interests. And the DHS answers directly, above King, to the president (who was conveniently in Australia at the time).


In other words, for the DHS to be on a call with mayors, the logic of its chain of command and accountability implies that congressional overseers, with the blessing of the White House, told the DHS to authorise mayors to order their police forces – pumped up with millions of dollars of hardware and training from the DHS – to make war on peaceful citizens.


But wait: why on earth would Congress advise violent militarised reactions against its own peaceful constituents? The answer is straightforward: in recent years, members of Congress have started entering the system as members of the middle class (or upper middle class) – but they are leaving DC privy to vast personal wealth, as we see from the "scandal" of presidential contender Newt Gingrich's having been paid $1.8m for a few hours' "consulting" to special interests. The inflated fees to lawmakers who turn lobbyists are common knowledge, but the notion that congressmen and women are legislating their own companies' profitsis less widely known – and if the books were to be opened, they would surely reveal corruption on a Wall Street spectrum. Indeed, we do already know that congresspeople are massively profiting from trading on non-public information they have on companies about which they are legislating – a form of insider trading that sent Martha Stewart to jail.


Since Occupy is heavily surveilled and infiltrated, it is likely that the DHS and police informers are aware, before Occupy itself is, what its emerging agenda is going to look like. If legislating away lobbyists' privileges to earn boundless fees once they are close to the legislative process, reforming the banks so they can't suck money out of fake derivatives products, and, most critically, opening the books on a system that allowed members of Congress to profit personally – and immensely – from their own legislation, are two beats away from the grasp of an electorally organised Occupy movement … well, you will call out the troops on stopping that advance.


So, when you connect the dots, properly understood, what happened this week is the first battle in a civil war; a civil war in which, for now, only one side is choosing violence. It is a battle in which members of Congress, with the collusion of the American president, sent violent, organised suppression against the people they are supposed to represent. Occupy has touched the third rail: personal congressional profits streams. Even though they are, as yet, unaware of what the implications of their movement are, those threatened by the stirrings of their dreams of reform are not. 


Sadly, Americans this week have come one step closer to being true brothers and sisters of the protesters in Tahrir Square.Like them, our own national leaders, who likely see their own personal wealth under threat from transparency and reform, are now making war upon us.
