anoncorpwatch Occupy Omaha OCCUPYLive Inside Occupy Wall Street’s (Kinda) Secret Media HQ | Threat Level  The revolution may never be televised, but if Occupy activists in a semi-secret media war room in New York’s Bowery district have their way, it will be livestreamed. Police seizures at occupations, as at the flagship camp in New York City on Tuesday, not to mention rain, cold and theft, are horrible for expensive media gear, as Occupy Wall Street found after setting up an ad hoc media operation in Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park in September. So Occupy Wall Street decided the best way to keep livestreams of the protests online was to move much of the gear to a safer location somewhere indoors. visited the sorta-secret Media HQ in Manhattan last week for the first thorough tour of the facility. The conversations with activists eerily presaged the turmoil in Manhattan Tuesday and in cities like Oakland and Portland over the weekend. The popular all-volunteer operation, originally run from a tent in Zuccotti Park, moved to a narrow room in the A.J. Video equipment disappears, too.

GRASSROOTS MAPPING Post written by Oscar Brett Arriving at Zucotti Park in downtown Manhattan, the site of #Occupy#Wallstreet, you can feel the energy of the crowd. The level of diversity (ideological/ ethnic/ generational) is unbelievable. The Occupation of Wall Street began on September 17th and it is getting stronger each day. I see my involvement in the park as that of a community builder and artist. The maintenance of a community at Zucotti park is an incredibly important thing; no matter how disparate the media claims the thousands of occupiers to be, there is one thing for certain — they are a community made up of individual people, with varying goals and intentions, voicing their dissent for the systemic problems of the world. This project would have been impossible without the help of Leif Percifield and Liz Barry. Upon arrival at the park the next day I linked up with the #Occupy#Wallstreet media working group and began preparation for the flight. –Oscar Brett

We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies. As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power. To the people of the world,
