Naomi Klein : « Le mouvement Occupons Wall Street est actuellement la chose la plus importante au monde » - MobilisationsJ’ai été honorée d’être invitée à parler [le 29 septembre] devant les manifestants d’Occupons Wall Street. La sonorisation ayant été (honteusement) interdite, tout ce que je disais devait être répété par des centaines de personnes, pour que tous entendent (un système de « microphone humain »).

At this moment the brave and dedicated #OccupyWallStreet protesters are in the streets of New York and cities around the world. They call the world’s attention to Wall Street greed and corruption as a common source of the many crises that threaten the human future—economic, political, social, and environmental. This is a defining moment for America. It is our country’s version of the uprisings occurring around the world. It is a ray of hope for democracy and real prosperity in America and beyond.

Swarm Wall Street: why an anti-political movement is the most important political force on the planet – Philosophy for changeThis was originally posted on the Coalition blog on 10 October, 2011. It is reposted here for the benefit of students in Philosophy and Social Media . Why are people occupying Wall Street? The US political elite and mainstream media don’t know what to make of it. ‘Anti-capitalist and unAmerican’, says Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain , echoing the sentiments of the conservative left and political right. The mainstream commentariat , when it dares to peer closer, paints an unflattering picture of disaffected, disorganized youth, milling about Liberty Square without a shower or a set of policy demands to level at the administration.

A protester announced via human mic that people had gone inside Citibank to close their accounts. They were asked to leave and complied, he said, but the bank’s security guards locked them in until the N.Y.P.D. arrived.

Occupy Wall Street a dénoncé mercredi la destruction de milliers de livres lors du démantèlement de son campement le 15 novembre à New York et a demandé au maire qu'ils soient tous remplacés. Des quelque 4.000 livres que comptait la bibliothèque, constituée durant deux mois à partir de dons, seuls 1.275 ont été récupérés, et seulement 839 sont encore utilisables, a précisé lors d'une conférence de presse l'avocat Norman Siegel, figure de la défense des droits civiques.

The "Occupy Wall Street" protests are gaining momentum, having spread from a small park in New York to marches to other cities across the country. So far, the protests seem fueled by a collective sense that things in our economy are not fair or right.
