On my visit to the library this morning, I was supplied with a full history of the institution by its appointed caretaker, Betsy Fagin. A few days ago, Betsy, a trained librarian who lives in Brooklyn, came to the protest for the first time and found a short stack of books lying on the ground where everyone was camped out. She decided to go to one of the organizational meetings for the protests and ask if anyone else thought it would be a good idea to start a proper library. People did. So Betsy posted a sign asking for book, newspaper, and poetry donations. She says that since then protesters, bystanders, and even Wall Streeters have been stopping by the park with stacks of books. Because she doesn’t keep track of who checks out what—the library is on the honor system—she has no idea what the most popular book is. She has seen a couple of people reading Allen Ginsberg’s “Howl,” Walt Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass,” and has noticed that the manga is flying off the shelves.

A member of TWU Local 100 told a reporter that they would join the protest Friday at 4PM.

Here's more about them from their website:

The TWU has four main divisions: Railroad; Gaming; Airline; Transit; and Utility, University and Service. The Union has 114 autonomous locals representing over 200,000 members and retirees in 22 states around the country.

Occupy Wall Street has been picking up some decent support from unions in the past few days. Yesterday we reported that the Teamsters Union declared their support for protestors, and we also found out that the United Pilots Union had members at the protest demonstrating in uniform.

Today we learned the Industrial Workers of the World put a message of support on their website as well.

UPDATE: Verizon union workers have joined the protestors in NYC.

The statement is really worth watching: an IMO successful attempt of a short resume about the international pro democracy and anti austerity + corruption movement and its possible political new implications, as they showed up by the recent results of the German Pirate Party in the city parliament of Berlin (status of a German state/Land ) with a sudden jump from zero to almost nine percent.

Lost View

In a view that is unlikely to ever be replicated, Mies van der Rohe's iconic IBM Building rises above the Chicago River at dusk. It was his last American building and he died in 1969 before its completion.

This view was only available for a few short months in 2005 after the old Sun-Times building was razed to make room for the new Trump Tower. I have serious regrets that I didn't spend more time shooting the exposed IBM that summer. Now the Trump Tower dominates this scene and obscures the simpler beauty of van der Rohe's work.

My name is Kelly Schomburg, I’m the girl with the red hair in these pictures. I was protesting at the Occupy Wall Street march yesterday when I and several other women were sprayed with mace and subsequently arrested. Many have already seen the video, which has been spreading like wildfire over twitter, Facebook, tumblr, and other video feeds, along with hundreds of other photos and videos. This is my recount of what happened.

I am not too sure, whether this trader is really as honest, as it may seem by a first superficial impression. May be he is right, that the Euro zone and the Euro itself will be collapsing within one year, but, what I really would question strongly, is that he is correct, when he states, that everyone has a realistic chance by using the down fall of the currency market to rescue his savings. It even is for me quite an effrontery as it is likewise a wrapped PR consequently following his own interest, that he dares to use the BBC programme for his IMO irresponsible proposals, and that obviously no one of the editorial staff of the news programme has the courage to invite someone from the meanwhile countless initiatives against the ongoing cynical abuse of tax payer bail out money, to confront the banking and the trader lobby with the inherent inconsistencies and consequences of this kind of argumentations: self fulfilling prophecy configured as a financial well positioned trap by hidden greed. //

Don’t dismiss the Wall Street occupation | Reuters 2011-09-26

It would seem that a populist uprising against corporate greed would find a widely approving audience, yet the current occupation of Wall Street has mostly been received with a mix of muted support and mockery. The now week old protest, which has been reported to have attracted several hundred activists this past weekend, is struggling to be understood.

There is no leader, by design, and the demands are still being formed by General Assemblies, a loose group of protesters who gather to discuss their grievances with what they see as a system that takes from the middle class and poor and protects the rich. They represent what they call “the 99%,” the population outside of top 1% of income earners.

Anti-Wall Street protesters arrested in New York

Protesters on wall street, new york (24 sept 2011)Police carry an arrested man in new york (24 sept 2011)At least 80 people have been arrested during an anti-Wall Street march in New York’s financial district.

Several hundred people took part in Saturday’s march, which was intended to draw attention to “corporate greed and corrupt politics” in the US.

Participants carried banners supporting a range of other issues, including healthcare reform, an end to US wars and the scrapping of the death penalty.

The march came after a week of protests by the Occupy Wall Street campaign.

The loosely organised group says it is defending 99% of the US population against the wealthiest 1%, and had called for 20,000 people to “flood into lower Manhattan” on 17 September and remain there for “a few months”.

Protesters, who are mostly young, initially numbered some 1,500 but their numbers had fallen to about 200 by Saturday’s march.

There was a heavy security presence in the district, with police deploying nets to block off major roads including Fifth Avenue and to protect the New York Stock Exchange.

One protester, 21-year-old Ryan Reed, said he joined in “because what I see – and what I feel most people in this country see – is an economy and a system that’s collapsing”.

“The enemy is the big business leaders of Wall Street, the big oil company leaders, the coal company leaders, the big military industrial leaders.”

A number of placards also called for “justice for Troy Davies”, the US man executed in Georgia last week amid widespread criticism.

Police said most of Saturday’s arrests were for disorderly conduct and blocking traffic, but one person was charged with assaulting a police officer. One officer also suffered a shoulder injury, said police.

They have not commented on protest organisers’ comments that there had been an “unprecedented level of police aggression” on display.

A statement on the Occupy Wall Street website said the protesters have “an interest in returning the US back into the hands of its individual citizens”.

“Our nation, our species and our world are in crisis. The US has an important role to play in the solution, but we can no longer afford to let corporate greed and corrupt politics set the policies if our nation.” …
