Two out of the three members follow this blog and they frequently reblog my post on the OccupyWallStreet blog.
The Twitter account @OccupyWallStNYC is also being monitored. It just so happens that they follow me as well.
Since this blog is arguably the most frequently updated and popular OWS-related Tumblr, I have reason to believe this blog is also being monitored and that could explain the frequent reportings.
If I find anything new, I will post an update. You can read the document here.
Why, hello Agent Scully! Hope you enjoy our updates.
I have NOTHING but sideeye for white folks in occupy movements that are marching thru manhattan and oakland today because “we are all treyvon” but repeatedly called POC “divisive” for wanting to bring up racism as an issue within the occupy movement and outside of it.
That’s some bullshit.
Just so you know.
There’s a difference between support and appropriation. It’s one thing to say we support their cause, it’s another to claim their cause as our own.
so, reoccupation, crackdown, broken windows, broken jaws, do we get to call it violence when the cops do it?
For continuing information about the student strikes in Montreal and elsewhere in Quebec, follow carton-rouge.
We will now return to our lovely coverage of everything #OWS. :D
This is your best bet. They should have all the information you need.
If you do not work, or you are unable to join a demonstration or march, do what i am going to do, telephone call centers and businesses and tell the person who answers to get the hell out of there and go the hell on strike already! Tell them to take their friends with them!
If many, many people do this, the event is likely to have an increased impact, with the bombardment of the individual worker with repeated messages from their fellow humans to respect this action.
Give them no rest until the lines go unanswered!!
I also want to call attention to the public statement made by formerly incarcerated people to Occupy Oakland & the affinity groups coordinating and participating in Monday’s Day of Action:
To the Occupy Oakland family, all supporters of Occupy Oakland, and the larger Occupy Wall Street movement:
We are writing to appreciate everyone who has ever supported PEOPLE inside jails, prisons, and detention facilities throughout the country. We are also writing to ask for support from everyone planning to participate in February 20th National Day of Occupy in Support of Prisoners. PEOPLE in prisons – a nice name for cages – as well as formerly imprisoned PEOPLE, are one of the most marginalized and vulnerable populations in our society. We have been labeled as “offenders”, “criminals”, “convicts”, “ex-offenders”, “ex-cons”, and many other dehumanizing terms, and are scapegoated for causing society’s fundamental problems. We are PEOPLE, and not the labels they use. The real “criminals” are those who run Wall Street, who are responsible for genocide, racism, xenophobia, and all forms of discrimination. They lead the attacks against communities throughout America.
Feb 20th is a National Day to support PEOPLE inside cages who express their solidarity with the 99% and to support PEOPLE seeking social, economic, and other forms of justice. With the help of our supporters, allies, and larger communities, we aim to create a safe space to allow the voices of PEOPLE in captivity to be heard.
Many of us inside as well as out in the “free” world live by a code of conduct and support self-determination. We strive to build and follow leadership in our collective and public actions. We do not advance individual agendas over our collective needs. We further pledge to treat each other with respect and not allow differences to divide us, to accept responsibility for any acts that may have caused harm to our families, our communities or ourselves, and to play an active role in making our communities safe for everyone.
Seldom if ever, are people inside asked or given a safe space to tell their stories. The broader Occupy Oakland and general public need to know what is going on inside these cages, how the bottom of the 99% are treated by the 1%, and the need to meaningfully include people inside as we build our collective efforts.
We ask everyone reading these words to support our efforts to create a safe, secure and genuinely inclusive space for people inside, and to build a genuine role for their voices in the February 20th National Day of Occupy in Support of Prisoners. We do not want to create or exacerbate conditions that endanger anyone’s freedom. We know police have attacked our sisters and brothers at Occupy encampments all over the country. We ask everyone participating to remember that for many of us even a mass arrest could escalate to a parole violation and a return to prison. We also want to guarantee the safety of family members with loved ones inside because they are the lifeline for PEOPLE in cages.
We ask you to be our sisters’ and brothers’ keepers!
