Keep it up! 2012 will show the progression and focus to carry this further. Jan 2

Occupy London's 'Bank of Ideas' survives its day in court|10Dec11
Occupy activists squatting a disused UBS bank building in London, now known as the Bank of Ideas, scored a major legal victory today (Wednesday). The Court of Appeal granted an extended stay of execution to appeal a decision by the High Court which would have meant their eviction within 24 hours. This is a win for the occupiers, who can now continue to use the space for organisation and community projects. Occupy London spokesperson Naomi Colvin told Socialist Worker that UBS lawyers had effectively shot themselves in the foot. 'We've now been given seven days for further appeal,' she added. The process after this could take several weeks, meaning that the community artistic space could survive until the new year.

By David FergusonThursday, December 29, 2011 10:28 EST A protester associated with Occupy London was barred from boarding his flight home to Malaga for Christmas because he was carrying “anarchist” literature, according to a report in the U.K. newspaper The Independent. The demonstrator was kept off the flight because the pilot worried that he would distribute literature and “upset” other passengers. Police claimed that John Charles Culatto, 34, was “acting suspiciously” when he stopped to talk to other passengers. He was taken into custody as security officials contacted Ryanair, the airline with which Culatto has booked his flight.

Despite risking arrest for staying in a home owned by Bank of America, Corrasquillo was determined to keep his homeless family in the occupied house. “Bank of America has basically been one of the biggest criminals in history,” he said.

A Moraga woman is trying to take the Occupy movement mainstream. So she and her friends bought a full-page ad in the San Francisco Chronicle. What they printed came as a real surprise to some of the occupy protesters. The full-page ad told readers that the congressional super committee failed to reduce the deficit, but that there is a solution. "It started because a friend sent me an email," Marti Roach said.

By David EdwardsMonday, December 5, 2011 10:23 EST New York City says it has spent over $13 million on Occupy Wall Street protests, but the owners of Zuccotti Park can’t seem to scrape up the $139,000 in back taxes they owe the city. The city Finance Department told The New York Daily News that Brookfield Properties still owes taxes from 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. “That’s obviously ironic,” City Councilman Jumaane Williams (D-Brooklyn) noted. “Occupy Wall Street has been talking about economic disparity … and here’s Brookfield Properties, which has worked with the mayor to keep the messengers out, not paying their share.”

Occupy LEGO Land
With the Occupy movement gaining ground, it comes as no surprise that interesting and creative works would pop up from virtually nowhere. Occupy LEGO Land is a tiny toy protest that is located within a larger one. These photos were recently taken by Scott Beale, founder of one of our favorite art and culture sites Laughing Squid, as he observed the main Occupy Wall Street demonstration at Zuccotti Park. The LEGO movement’s creative motto is “We must not be Lego ‘Lands’ - We must be a Lego NATION!” They even have their own Facebook page. Photos by Scott Beale for Laughing Squid via [Laughing Squid]
Wall Street Firms Spy on Protestors In Tax-Funded Center
A CounterPunch Exclusive Wall Street’s audacity to corrupt knows no bounds and the cooptation of government by the 1 per cent knows no limits. How else to explain $150 million of taxpayer money going to equip a government facility in lower Manhattan where Wall Street firms, serially charged with corruption, get to sit alongside the New York Police Department and spy on law abiding citizens. According to newly unearthed documents, the planning for this high tech facility on lower Broadway dates back six years.
As protestors in the Occupy movement have been arrested or relocated by force across the nation, the anti-Wall Street crowd in downtown Los Angeles has remained relatively peaceful. Occupy LA's attorney, Carol Sobel, a solo practitioner in Santa Monica, Calif., who is co-chairwoman of the National Lawyers Guild's mass defense committee, said it's no accident that Los Angeles hasn't gone the way of the rest of the country.
