The Demographics Of Occupy Wall Street Coverage of the technology at Occupy Wall Street focuses on the neat-o, young-people elements such as Twitter, Facebook, live streaming video, and a sleepover atmosphere. But Occupy Wall Street also employs the kind of heavy-duty data crunching and analysis found at marketing firms and universities. In fact, two of the volunteers, business analyst Harrison Schultz and professor Hector R. Cordero-Guzman from the Baruch College School of Public Affairs, today released a study based on a survey of 1,619 visitors to the occupywallst.org site on October 5. Some of the results are to be expected. Among the findings: They aren’t all kids. It’s not all students and the educated elite. “Get a job!” “Tax the rich!” It may be a party, but not that kind. Not everyone tweets. While interesting, the survey is still a rough cut, with some gaps. And so far, according to the survey, Occupy Wall Street would qualify as stuff white people like.

I just got back home from Occupy the Fed Dallas/Occupy Dallas. with pics I just got back home from the Occupy the Fed Dallas protest. Turnout was more than a few hundred people from what I saw (I arrived a little after 5 but I heard people were out there for hours before). Quite the variety of people there. Most signes were End the Fed related/anti-bank, along with Anonymous (the Guy Fawkes masks to), Ron Paul, and more anti-government. Alex Jones was on the mega phone, doing interviews, and shaking almost everybodys hand there. "You know why the police brought out the gang unit??? I wasnt able to catch all of his speeches, but they should be up on youtube pretty soon. Unfortunantly, OccupyDallas didnt really show up. The police again were very respectful. That was pretty much the jist of things earlier today. Oh yea, there were quite a few beautiful women there to. (Pics were taken on my phone, could have been better but its better than nothing)

Occupy Wall Street in China: Representation and Social Networks By Dandan (澹澹) Did you know? European Alternatives is working to set up a European-Chinese think tank. Information here Since October 11th Zizek’s comments on Occupy Wall Street were tweeted and retweeted on Weibo, China’s Twitter-like microblogging service and the most vivid public discussion platform. There seemed to be more or less a consensus on the relevance for Chinese internet users of a voice that comments on the events going on in the Unites States and elsewhere in the world. On the new media front, according to a statistics made earlier on October 7th by Peking University Media Studies Center (@北大媒体研究), the three biggest online bulletin boards had little representation of the movement. If this was curious, what appeared on the Internet on Oct 6th was downright hilarious. On a parallel line, China Central Television, the major official news outlet in China, has sporadically reported on the movement since September 18.

Open Letter to Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi | UCDavis Bicycle Barricade 18 November 2011 Open Letter to Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi Linda P.B. I am a junior faculty member at UC Davis. You are not. I write to you and to my colleagues for three reasons: 1) to express my outrage at the police brutality which occurred against students engaged in peaceful protest on the UC Davis campus today 2) to hold you accountable for this police brutality 3) to demand your immediate resignation Today you ordered police onto our campus to clear student protesters from the quad. What happened next? Without any provocation whatsoever, other than the bodies of these students sitting where they were on the ground, with their arms linked, police pepper-sprayed students. What happened next? Police used batons to try to push the students apart. This is what happened. You are responsible for it because this is what happens when UC Chancellors order police onto our campuses to disperse peaceful protesters through the use of force: students get hurt. Sincerely, Like this: Like Loading...

Internal NYPD Rift Over Aggressive Tactics Used Against Peaceful #OccupyWallStreet Protesters? The OccupyWallSt.org site says that they “received unconfirmed reports that over one hundred blue-collar police refused to come into work in solidarity with our movement.” This is a potentially huge story. We’re looking into this to verify. This report featured in the Boston Review gives a first-hand account of several cases of police brutality, which occurred during Saturday’s march. As the report states, blue-collar officers were shocked by the aggressive tactics white-collar officers used. Why I Was Maced at the Wall Street ProtestsBy Jeanne Mansfield, Boston Review My boyfriend Frank and I are heading toward Liberty Square to check out what’s going on at the Occupy Wall Street protest, when we stumble upon the afternoon march toward Union Square. All in all, it starts out as a pretty good time. As we circle Union Square, about twenty NYPD officers haul out orange plastic nets (the kind used to fence off construction sites) and close off the road, diverting the crowd.

MTV's 'True Life: Occupy Wall Street' Turns Movement Into Reality Show Though networks typically dispatch embeds during campaign season, MTV took a different approach to the tactic when it dispatched youth into the Occupy Wall Street protests for its show "True Life." "True Life: I'm Occupying Wall Street" will premiere on Saturday, November 5, at 6 p.m. et. Four MTV embeds protested in Zuccotti Park with Occupy Wall Street demonstrators and immersed themselves in the cause. The special will take viewers to "the front lines" of the Occupy Wall Street protests and follow the four embeds as they become "swept up in the cause." The special will focus primarily on the point of view of the younger demonstrators whose anger is seemingly focused on the concept that they graduated college and expected to find employment, but have been having difficulty in finding steady jobs during the recession.
