London, England: The privatisation of public space is harming our ability to protest: here.

USA: How the 99 Percent Really Lost Out – in Far Greater Ways Than the Occupy Protesters Imagine. Gar Alperovitz, Truthout: “The biggest ‘theft’ by the 1 percent has been of the primary source of wealth – knowledge – for its own benefit”: here.

Occupy Movement Confronts Racial Disparities Within America’s 99 Percent. Kanya D’Almeida and Judith Scherr, Inter Press Service: “Oakland, too, represents the disparity within the 99 percent. The differences between white, black and brown joblessness is stark: in 2010, white unemployment was seven percent, while black and Latino unemployment was 19.6 percent and 15.2 percent, respectively”: here.

Occupy Movement Underutilizes Potential to Challenge War Economy. Kathy Kelly, Truthout: “Many who are led to protest in the US may understandably want tax reform, better jobs, higher salaries and more lucrative ‘occupations’ for people. But they also have an opportunity to press even more urgently their important questions about how our society can begin seeking work that is truly useful, and how that is tied to the production of goods and services that won’t serve military causes and won’t be used for war, destruction and bloodshed”: here.

Where Are the Women at Occupy Wall Street? Everywhere – and They’re Not Going Away. Sarah Seltzer, The Nation: “‘As we started to grow, and started to be taken seriously, there was a concerted effort to bring in diverse voices and faces to reporters,’ says Barragan, a Latina woman who is a member of the press team. ‘In the beginning it was really exhausting because I noticed that reporters didn’t take me seriously. My job is to go up to them – and often I would be ignored. I’m not used to that. I would go home and cry,’ she says. Still, her and others’ persistence has paid off”: here.

Occupy San Francisco: No-Show Raid Invigorates Protesters. Kevin Fagan, The San Francisco Chronicle: “Before word swept through Occupy SF of an impending police raid, the camp at the south end of Justin Herman Plaza was largely a crash pad for chronically homeless people, with a contingent of activists thrown in to push the core message of denouncing economic disparity. Then came the raid that didn’t come”: here.

    OCCUPY’S GROWING DIVERSITY

    Occupy Wall Street Struggles to Make ‘the 99%’ Look Like Everybody
    Minority leaders have begun to rally for wider participation of people of color, and groups like “Occupy the Hood,” started by a man in South Jamaica, Queens, have begun to boost their presence both online — Occupy the Hood’s Facebook page now counts more than 8,800 supporters — and on the street. A “People of Color Working Group” has been meeting regularly at Zuccotti Park.

    Who is the 99 Percent?
    Clarence Thomas, executive board member of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union in San Francisco and a former Black Panther, stressed the need for the 99 percent to come together. He pointed out that one of the strengths of the Panther movement was its ability to develop coalitions with white allies, who were referred to at the time as “white radicals of the mother country.” He said he thinks this can happen in the Occupy Movement.

    Photo Essay: Existing and Resisting for Palestine at Wall Street
    The pro Palestinian organisation “Existence is Resistance” held a silk screening event at the Occupy Wall Street Encampment. Anyone who brought their own T shirt or anything else that could be silk screened were able to get it imprinted with the words “Un-Occupy All Foreign Lands”. There was a large turnout for the event as can be seen in these photos.
