On Friday, Naomi Wolf made the attention-grabbing accusation in the Guardian that federal officials were involved in, indeed ordered, the violent crackdowns against Occupy Wall Street protesters that we've been seeing across the country these past few weeks. Congressional overseers, with the blessing of the White House, told the DHS [Department of Homeland Security] to authorise mayors to order their police forces - pumped up with millions of dollars of hardware and training from the DHS - to make war on peaceful citizens. The next day, Joshua Holland debunked Wolf's claims on Alternet. I don't have much to add to Holland's critique. Why Naomi Wolf got it wrong
Mobile Phones and Activism I’m giving a talk on activist uses of mobile phones in the developing world later this month. Prior to the talk, the organizers have asked me to submit a short paper on the topic - here’s a draft of what I’m planning on turning in, with the hope that you guys can offer some comments and make it better. If you ask a US-based activist the most important technical development of the past five years, they’ll likely tell you about the rise of citizen media, the use of blogs and web community sites to disseminate information, organize events and raise money.

Keith Olbermann calls out Media Blackout on 'Occupy Wall Street' Protest
Michael Moore 'Occupy Wall Street will only get Bigger' • Keith Olbermann
By James Petras, 99GetSmart Introduction In ancient Rome, especially during the late Republic, oligarchs resorted to mob violence to block, intimidate, assassinate or drive from power the dominant faction in the Senate. While neither the ruling or opposing factions represented the interests of the plebeians, wage workers, small farmers or slaves, the use of the ‘mob’ against the elected Senate, the principle of representative government and the republican form of government laid the groundwork for the rise of authoritarian “Caesars” (military rulers) and the transformation of the Roman republic into an imperial state. Demagogues, in the pay of aspiring emperors, aroused the passions of a motley array of disaffected slum dwellers, loafers and petty thieves (ladrones) with promises, pay-offs and positions in a New Order. Professional mob organizers cultivated their ties with the oligarchs ‘above’ and with professional demonstrators ‘below’. 99GetSmart
“Occupy Wall Street”: Thousands March in NYC Financial District, Set Up Protest Encampment This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form.

The cuts are meant to reduce government spending by more than $3 trillion over the next decade.

You know, one of these days people are going to fight back, and it's going to be a gigantic mob of poorly-armed angry people against a group of, yes, well-armed, but relatively-few-in-number cops. And a lot of those cops are going to get royally, royally fucked up. I've seen enough videos of police brutality that I can honestly say that, when this time comes, it's probably not going to discomfort me as much as it should. What can cops do to stave off this future event? Try not being unnecessarily aggressive. Cops Tackle, Mace Wall St. Protesters for No Obvious Reason
Sep 25, 2011 1:03pm (Tina Fineberg/AP Photo) ABC News’ Olivia Katrandjian reports: Video posted by the group Occupy Wall St from the eighth day of protests against corporations show police using Tasers and mace to control the crowd, which the group says has only made it more committed to keep up the demonstrations in lower Manhattan for the long haul. ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Protests Turn Violent; Video Shows Police Macing Women

Nathan Schneider: Who Will Occupy Wall Street on September 17? When the culture-jamming activist group Adbusters put out a call on July 13 for "20,000 people" to "flood into lower Manhattan, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months," it never said who those people would be. Now, the question on the minds of everyone from the Department of Homeland Security to the Lower East Side anarchist set is just who and how many will actually show up. The simplest cop-out of an answer is to say that nobody exactly knows. To an extent, it's true. The large, established, membership groups -- unions, lobbies, etc. -- have kept quiet about it, so their rank-and-file can't be counted on en masse. There's no central planning committee, no permit with the city, and not even an official website, so there's no obvious person to ask for a prediction or a figure.
Protesters have been occupying Wall Street for days to draw attention to "the economic occupation" of Big Banks, Big Corporations, Big Money, Big Greed. Remember when civil disobedience like this used to get the attention of the news media? Now that kind of coverage only happens at tea party rallies like the ones below (as opposed to the ongoing march by thousands on Wall Street), and when the signs look like this: Now here are a few screen grabs I took of Occupy Wall Street, where you can bet there would be 24/7 reporting on MSNBC and CNN if these were tea baggers: Live stream here. PhotOH! What CNN and MSNBC are not covering today: Protesters Occupy Wall Street
