Exclusive: Occupy Wall Street Activist Slams Fox News Producer In Un-Aired Interview [Video] | The New York ObserverProtester Jesse LaGreca schools Fox producer Even if was at the Zuccotti Park yesterday , Fox News has generally been a tad dismissive of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Foxnews.com (as of this writing) has no coverage of this national event on their front page stories. (Hard to imagine for a network that was so gung-ho about the Tea Party!)

There is something very wrong with this picture Paul Joseph Watson Infowars.com Sunday, October 2, 2011 Despite their honest intentions, many of the Occupy Wall Street protesters are being suckered into a trap and calling for the very “solutions” that are part of the financial elite’s agenda to torpedo the American middle class – higher taxes and more big government. Watch the clip below in which journalist Adam Kokesh talks to Occupy Wall Street protesters. The ignorance displayed in these interviews knows no bounds.
Robert Stolarik for The New York Times Protestors gathered in Lower Manhattan for what some called the United States Day of Rage. For months the protesters had planned to descend on Wall Street on a Saturday and occupy parts of it as an expression of anger over a financial system that they say favors the rich and powerful at the expense of ordinary citizens. As it turned out, the demonstrators found much of their target off limits on Saturday as the city shut down sections of Wall Street near the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Hall well before their arrival. By 10 a.m., metal barricades manned by police officers ringed the blocks of Wall Street between Broadway and William Street to the east. (In a statement, Paul J.

By Nick Harbaugh and Jon Huang Wall Street Protesters Speak: The young and old on what they hope to accomplish by joining the Occupy Wall Street demonstration in Zuccotti Park. The hodgepodge Lower Manhattan encampment known as Occupy Wall Street has no appointed leaders, no expiration date for its rabble-rousing stay and still-evolving goals and demands. Yet its two weeks of noisy occupation has lured a sturdily faithful and fervent constituency willing to express discontentment with what they feel is an inequitable financial system until, well, whenever. They arrived by design and desire.
US protesters are totally against the distribution of wealth and power among the minority in the country, the Occupied Wall Street Journal editor Arun Gupta tells Press TV. “There is no one single demand, we can say why people are there because they are all opposed to the extreme concentration of the wealth and power among the top one percent of the society,” he said in an exclusive interview with Press TV on Saturday. “It's a system of the rich, by the rich, and for the rich,” he added.

Building on the momentum of the Arab Spring movements, protesters in the US are gathering in New York City's financial district in a bid to show mass resistance against the dominance of the country's financial system. What started as an online campaign has translated into action on the ground, with protest organisers calling for thousands of people to "occupy Wall Street" on Saturday. "On the 17th of September, we want to see 20,000 people flood into lower Manhattan, set up beds, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months," organisers wrote on the www.occupywallst.org website. "Like our brothers and sisters in Egypt, Greece, Spain, and Iceland, we plan to use the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic of mass occupation to restore democracy in America. We also encourage the use of nonviolence to achieve our ends and maximize the safety of all participants."

To The NYPD: Investigate Officer Bologna's Macing Of Nonviolent Protestors He did it again. Footage has emerged of a second macing of nonviolent protesters by NYPD officer Anthony Bologna (below). The NYPD is claiming it's going to investigate, but Commissioner Raymond Kelly is skeptical that Bologna did anything wrong! He said of the footage of the incident: "In my experience, proponents of a certain position would show you just what they want to show you."
Over the past few years, we have had a few cases were Google decided to censor a report of ours from their search results. We documented one case publicly here . We usually don’t make a big deal about it online because people tend to just dismiss us as “crazy” when we do. However, this latest case is blocking our new report on the #OccupyWallStreet movement and we would like to bring it to the attention of the many supporters within the movement.
Mayor Bloomberg made some ominous comments today about the ongoing Occupy Wall Street protests that have been going on for nearly two weeks in Zuccotti Park. When he was asked on his weekly radio show whether he'll let the anti-corporate protesters stay as long as they want, he responded cryptically : "We'll see. People have a right to protest, but we also have to make sure that people who don't want to protest can go down the streets unmolested."
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets of Manhattan's financial district on Saturday in a largely peaceful protest aimed at drawing attention to the role powerful financial interests played in wreaking havoc on America's economy. Modeled on the "Arab Spring" uprisings that swept through Egypt, Tunisia, Syria and other countries this year, Occupy Wall Street is a "leaderless resistance movement" orchestrated through Twitter, Facebook and other social media tools. The Twitter hashtags #OccupyWallStreet and #TakeWallStreet lit up Saturday with coordination messages and solidarity tweets. (See CNNMoney's coverage in photos and tweets .) Activist magazine Adbusters spearheaded the event, putting the call out two months ago for participants in a Sept. 17 demonstration in lower Manhattan. Protestors arranged to meet and discuss their goals at the iconic Wall Street Bull statue at noon, as well as at a "people's assembly" at One Chase Manhattan Plaza at 3 p.m.
