UPDATE on Radiohead concert rumour

This morning, we were alerted to the possibility of Radiohead playing an impromptu show at #OCCUPYWALLSTREET at about 4pm this afternoon.

The New York Times’ City Room Blog reports that the band’s spokesperson has said that the band is “definitely not” going to perform at Liberty Plaza, contrary to initial reports. This is contrary to the “confirmed” information we received earlier from Gothamist and the OccupyWallSt.org website, and we are not quite sure where that information came from.

BUT! Gawker is reporting the following:

However, an Occupy Wall Street spokesman we spoke to insists the show will go on and that organizers have email confirmation from members of the band that Radiohead will be playing an acoustic set at 4pm. “What we think is happening is they don’t want a lot of people to come,” he said. “Trust me, we have confirmation.” CNN’s Jeremy Ryan is now reporting that the show is a go as well; what might happen if Radiohead doesn’t show up could be more interesting than if they did.

It is still unclear exactly what will (or will not) happen, but we apologize for any confusion caused by the announcement on this blog earlier today. We thank you for your patience and understanding — obviously getting dependable information is difficult, given the nature of this event.

UPDATE: One of the occupation’s official Twitter feeds states that Radiohead will not be playing at the demonstration and that event organizers were ‘hoaxed.’

This is the ninth communiqué from the 99 percent. We are occupying Wall Street. The police barricades that have been surrounding the Stock Exchange help.

Sunday has been decreed, once again, a day of rest. We didn’t march. We have made a new world, a new city within the city. We are working on a new sky for where the towers are now.

Throughout the day our sisters and brothers arrested yesterday came back home to Liberty Plaza. They greeted the new faces that have joined us here. They shared their stories of imprisonment, of medical care denied and delayed. We welcomed them and listened.

Yesterday was a day of action, and today was one of healing, discussion, and preparation. Working groups met in small circles around the plaza, planning their work and preparing to report back to the General Assembly as a whole. The Assembly debated, as always, the hows and whys of being here. In the morning, we talked about the occupations rising up in cities around the United States, joining us in what we’re doing, as people begin rediscovering the power in themselves against the powers looming over them in buildings. We talked of calling more people to do what we’re doing. In the evening we talked about staying, or leaving, and what this space means for us. We love it, we’re almost addicted to it, but what we are is more than this.

We strolled around the plaza. We wrote songs with new friends. We argued about politics with each other, but not a politics of puppets: a politics for us. We fed the hungry and gave sleeping bags to the cold. We roughhoused. We talked to the world on our livestream. Most of all, we kept on organizing ourselves. Our library grew.

Drums blared for hours into the night when the Assembly wasn’t in session, until the time came for quiet. The drummers ended by reciting from the Principles of Solidarity we approved in Friday’s General Assembly, in the rain. Before the police lined along the Broadway side of the plaza, they cried together, “We are daring to imagine a new socio-political and economic alternative that offers greater possibility of equality.” And more.

“Safety in numbers!” a sign by them says. “Join us.”

This is the eighth communiqué from the 99 percent. We are occupying Wall Street.

On September 24th, 2011, the lie revealed itself. We live in a world where only 1 percent of us are protected and served.

We demand that Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly resigns.

We demand that this man is charged for maliciously spraying protesters and blue-collar police.

We demand jail time - for this man and others like him.
We demand that no blue-collar police is charged for the crimes of their supervisor.

We demand that Mayor Bloomberg address our General Assembly and apologize for what has occurred.

A message to blue-collar police:
Do not do what you are told. We are peaceful and you know this. We offer you coffee in the morning and water in the day. You always refuse and we know that’s because they told you to.
Speak of the crimes of your supervisors. We will help you. We are expressing the same frustration that you feel. You are the 99 percent. Join us. Join our conversation.

A few petitions:

Petition for the Obama Administration to recognize #occupywallstreet.

Petition to end corporate personhood.

Petition to recognize contributions by corporations as bribery.

Petition to recognize the decisions of the People’s General Assembly as Democratic Law.

Some of these petitions are obviously more realistic than others. For the first three you have to make a WH.gov account but it does come in handy occasionally.
