Occupy Wall St is small, but larger than I thought it would be. I hope it holds on, hope it re-groups if it breaks up. Want hope and change ? Get out in the streets! Baby steps...

I'd love to be wrong, but I think revolutionary spirit goes to die in "organic committees" and impromptu bureaucracy through a bullhorn...last night was very energetic and active... I'm hoping for it to heat up again but Monday morning, but at the moment it's looking grim. Like · · 18 September at 17:18

two days of Occupy Wall Street...I'm wondering which of my peers have given any thought to it at all. Wondering if my peers have given any thought to Tehran, Tunis, Cairo, Athens, London or Madison...New York. Is it the media blackout, or a genuine lack of interest; a lack of urgency?

Occupy Wall Street-I'm not there yet today, but I'm getting reports of a police siege, a power shutdown of the park at Liberty Place and Broadway, as well as paddy wagons a four-deep police surrounding the area. All the more important to be there with cameras and phones... media blackout in Lower Manhattan.

Occupy Wall Street, here's a link for out-of-towners, and people who might be home ill, and others "there in spirit" and want to pitch in: https://www.wepay.com/donate/99275 I talked to the guy coordinating the food yesterday and he's good...

Anyone who thinks young people are apathetic, let me tell you there are about 300 in Lower Manhattan for 3 days who are not. I only wish there were tens of thousands more, and as many not-young people too.

I was so happy to see a great old friend from college at the Wall Street Occupation today, I hope to see many more. If you are in or near by NYC, you have to come down and talk to these great folks and get out and make some noise...every person for every minute is momentum. Please come down, unless you enjoy socialism for the top 1%, watching them enjoy the greatest profits in the history of the world while you drown in debt. Come down, it feels better.

Apathy is one of many tools they have to trick you into collaborating with them in dominating you. You lick the dirt from the bottoms of their shoes with your apathy. Come down to Wall Street and quit licking their soles. Basic dignity is contagious. Solidarity.

Big big ups ! and virtual hugs to my friend Janet Wolfman who, in spite of real challenges was inspired to get down to Wall Street today after seeing the video of protestors being dragged and roughed up by NYPD. Much love to Janet!

Occupy Wall St. 9/20/2011

by Chris Kasper on Tuesday, 20 September 2011 at 19:30

Janet Wolfman, a 67 year old friend of mine who recently had brain surgery, whose outrage swallowed her fear after watching videos of kids being dragged and beaten bloody by NYPD, came downtown today and brought food and talked with people and met a woman her own age who came all the way from Colorado, to protest...it's happening around the clock, before during and after work. Come down for 10 minutes, 10 hours or 10 days. Occupy Wall Street really needs your participation. NYPD is beating up on beautiful idealistic kids, these amazing kids who are leading, showing the way, trying to take America into their own hands instead of waiting on the next bullshit election cycle. Occupy Wall Street needs our support. I'll see you down there tomorrow.

If you are an academic in or around NYC and you're writing yet one more paper on "Labor Conditions", "The Paris Commune", "Anotonio Gramsci", "Neoliberalism and the Spectacular Affect of the Emerging Precariat", "The Revolutionary Underpinnings of Jean Luc Goddard", "Pedagogy of the Oppressed" or anything "May 68" oriented, and you don't show up for Occupy Wall Street, and you do not have real disabilities, than you're a fraud. You're probably quietly hoping "those delusional assholes from the midwest, or wherever they come from" just go away, so you don't have to be confronted with the inconvenience of having to skip the next dinner party or the next pedantic lecture at The New School Vera List Center. You're only interested in all that jazz because it's academic currency with your faculty, who have been hiding on in their respective departments for the last 40 years. You're only setting yourself up for a financial and existential crisis a couple years down the road when there are no jobs...otherwise we can't wait to see you downtown, and await your appearance with enthusiastic anticipation.

‎#occupywallstreet, "It would be a big deal if more came down. I don't understand people who support the protesters ideologically but criticize the action for not being a big mainstream smash hit. As the speakers there from Spain, Iran and Egypt remind the impromptu visitors, their revolutions began with weeks of protests by a few. The truth is it radically shifts the reality on the ground for the thousands of tourists and workers - and they occupy a plaza peacefully" Damien Crisp

For the moment, I don't lament the lack of national media at #occupywallstreet. There are genuinely beautiful and formative things happening there (and really beautiful people), happening in nuanced ways that I don't think could translate and be distilled into media sound bites. It's growing and will continue to do so. America, I think, should find some optimism with what is happening there. I certainly am. The media will catch up eventually, but important things, positive things are happening there right now. Stay tuned, and participate. Hope to see you there tomorrow and over the weekend.

I just read about the horrific state lynching of Troy Davis. I'm too saddened by this right now, too deflated to feel the outrage I know is coming. There was plenty of concrete evidence to support a reasonable doubt. Snap out of your apathy America. It fucking matters. Murdering barbarians. Shame shame on Georgia, shame on the United States. My heart goes out to his family.
