Update 9/22/11 6:04 Eastern: Coverage of Occupy Wall Street can periodically be found at democracynow.org. They have some excellent interviews and footage, and unlike the MSM, they interview people who are well articulated. I’ve found by now that even left-leaning publications seek out the dumbest person at a protest and interview them. That’s all the public gets, so that’s what they think it is. Democracynow.org actually covers shit. Go figure.
Update 9/21/11 5:35am Eastern: Here’s the best writing on the arrests and happenings yesterday, the 20th: http://wagingnonviolence.org/2011/09/liberty-plaza-prevails-over-provocation/
Update 9/20/11 11:17am Eastern: NYPD ATTACKS: Police have injured at least one person, and are according to reports attacking protesters. Here’s some arrest video. Notice the police inflicting injury and torture on one young man at about 3:13, by crushing his shoulder and also his hips to the ground. These are typical police tactics, not meant to detain but to repress through trauma. They want to ensure that their victims are too burnt out and hurt to continue protesting the next day, and to set an example to others: to challenge the socioeconomic order in the U.S. by legal protest is akin to defying the gods themselves. That defiance must be met with corporal, summary punishment.
