I just called CNN. And Said that i saw a large group of people on wall street protesting and camping and that they should take some cameras like they did in Egypt and Libya and inform the people like they are supposed to. She just said stop calling, thank you.

EDIT: lets all call CNN all day and night. If you have a GMAIL account and are overseas like me, is free to call from your browser plus is somehow untraceable..

wall street was simply a venue
and when the cops pushed them into Zuccati park it was a blessing because it's privately owned and they got permission to occupy from the owners

Are you suggesting that we approach congress and ask them to quit taking money from their keepers?

Wall Street is an exchange market.... fair enough, but its also the card table where all of the feds imaginary money is played at the expense of the 99%



then protest at a member bank of the federal reserve. I bet most US posters on this site have investments or 401(k) money invested through wall street and don't send any profits back on principle

might as well protest a post office claiming they are the way companies mail your bills

there was coverage on cnn. they said the protesters were being maced and arrested for being nude and doing lewd acts in public. they also didn't show any footage, saying "it's too graphic for us to show".

we all know what is really going on.

Any news coverage? I have seen some, but nothing that the mainstream media is really worth hearing if you care about what is needed to be done. RussiaToday has been covering it fairly well, they have a youtube channel. Its not a complete blackout, and unless something ugly happens down there i doubt we will see much more of it on mainstream media.

On a brighter side of things, Portland Oregon is going to start our own protest on October 6th at noon.

Its great to see other cities getting their game faces on. See who need the news, this is going to keep on growing until they cannot ignore it anymore!

Maybe people need to read newspapers and media websites more often. This protest is covered by the media, well it is here in the UK.

So as far as I can tell this thread is nonsense.

If nonsense, how come those who watch MSM for their news have not heard of Occupy Wall Street.........

You live in the UK so you cannot speak for the US............

I guess if you are glued to the news 24/7 you may see a blimp of coverage……………..as ATS member Bob Sholtz reported, CNN said "it's too graphic for us to show".

Now that’s news coverage……….

Or I guess you could call the Michael Moore interview coverage as well…………But who watches MSNBC?

More coverage is exactly what they need. Plaster each of their faces on the nightly news and embarrass the crap out of their parents and families.

"Hi Mrs. Davis, was that little Johnny I saw screaming for socialism next to a bunch of communists getting arrested last night? You must be so proud..."

Show real Americans the lunacy we're up against. Support the constitution, not these pawns...I mean kids.

These "pawns" are sticking up for the nation and The Constitution.

Let us not attack these brave kids who have declared in one voice, "NO MORE!".

News censoring is the reality of the day.

Fast and Furious should be non-stop coverage in the news. It is a systemic case of corruption and law breaking that extends at least up to the Attorney General.

Soylendra should be non-stop coverage. Pay for play, incompetence of the highest order. Outright corruption.

Were either of these two things happen with a Republican in office there would be special prosecutors in place and hearings would already have been done. I believe that were Obama not African American there would be a special prosecutor and hearings being held on both already. They are not (other than the preliminary hearings last week) because there is a strong desire to not engage into what will be spun into a "witch hunt against a black president" by the MSM. The witch hunt would become the news, hence the lack of investigation into these criminal matters.

Racial violence, black on white that is happening constantly and is on the rise should be receiving daily coverage. The level of urban violence in this country is escalating, it is racial and it warrants coverage.

The Wall Street protest is another issue, far, far less significant than the items above. A bunch of tools crowding an area where tens of thousands of middle class folks work, making their lives difficult is not the stuff of news unless you want to cover Susan Sarandon zipping by in her working class limo on the way to Italy. I do believe that it should be covered more - showing these idiots on TV, asking their opinions about what they are attempting to accomplish, clearly showing them to be ignorant tools.

There efforts are really having an effect. Market is open 20 minutes and up over 250............

Should the "working man" protest the finance industry? Perhaps. How about the unions fire all of the bankers who run their multi $billion pension funds and run that money themselves. If these folks hated Wall Street so much they would'nt hire Goldman Sachs to run their equity portfolios.

I agree, their message may not be clear or one that you or I may agree with but at least they are standing up to the establishment………..

Hopefully as this movement moves forward a voice will appear that will rally support from all organizations who see the corruption and tyranny of TPTB…………

Change must have a beginning and there will be “NO” change sitting behind a computer screen…….

You need to get real and understand who these people are all about.

The unions? The unions are the biggest holders of wealth in the country with multi-billion dollar pensions run by the largest and most aggressive asset managers in the industry. The unions who castigate the financial system for being blown up and bailed are the same folks who wanted to buy CDO instruments in their funds, hedge products, currency overlays, all of it. The unions were a major force creating the market for the shoddy products in the first place.

The Hollywood crowd? Michael Moore is suing his studio for more dough. Its estimated that he's made $25-$50M off of his movies. When asked about whether or not capitalism has been good to him he points to "his home" Flint, MI. Does he live in Flint? No. He lives in largely Republican Traverse City.

The anarchy crowd? Most of these folks are simply professional protesters. Upper middle class kids who fancy themselves revolutionaries. They show up anywhere, WTO protests, G8 summits. Protesting is a party for them. The notion that they are struggling citizens is a falacy. If these folks actually had to work for a living and did not get their monthly allowance from mommy they would not have the time to engage in protests.

When the unions fire their blue chip bankers, the Hollywood folks walk the talk and the professional protesters actually have something substantive to say or a legitimate reason to protest that they can articulate other than childish rubbish like "we need to tear the system down", I will consider this kind of thing an honest activity. Until that it is a bunch of BS by children looking to get on TV.

The democrats? Which party gets more money from the Wall Street crowd? The democrat party.

This "protest" is nothing but a sideshow for folks with nothing better to do.

Hell, a large percentage of the investment banking crowd is in mid-town anyway. The majority of folks working down on Wall Street are in support roles. Folks taking the train from Queens each day, working through a 90 minute commute each way to earn $70K working on a margin desk or reviewing proxy statements, things like that.

I'm a journalist and could probably get this into at least a very big and well known online publication. I recently managed to get a story past legal at the Huffington Post about the new oil leak, so I don't see why I couldn't get this mentioned elsewhere.

I haven't really been following what's going on though, where's best to start? Like an overview or something?
