One month ago, we were kicked out of Zuccotti. Today, we had a major action at Canal St. Regardless of whether you support an eventual occupation at that location, it feels like this chapter of Occupy Wall Street is coming to a close. Regardless of the success our movement has in the future, the forceful and criminal eviction of November 15th still hurts. It hurts to be holding GA’s here in an empty park. It hurts to stand here in the cold, fighting for nothing. I do not mean that we don’t stand for principles.
I mean that we don’t have a physical home.
There is nothing here. There are no structures. There is no sign of our community. There is no life. Yes, we are here. But we have become tourists.
The Occupation has Failed

The Occupation has succeeded in ways you will never know.
Isn't this more of a rant?
No star, no flag for disparaging people who at least tried to effect change.

This is great. These people have attempted to stop people from getting to work. By shutting down subways and ports. They harassed holiday shoppers. They delayed gifts by shutting down ports. They shut down parks. They got the homeless evicted.. who had nowhere else to go and in some cases were cleaner then the Occupiers. They committed numerous violent/sexual crimes. They rejected what the American people saw with their OWN eyes. They started bad rumors such as the marines are coming.. One military man came and he got his ass kicked. They tried to play the police brutality card... But after all the actions of above, the American people came to the conclusion these people deserved it. I could not be happier that it's over.... No more smells, No more drums.
Occupy Wall Street is taking it to the streets of areas hit hard by foreclosures around the country today. In New York, protesters are taking a tour of foreclosed homes in East New York, which will ultimately end with them "occupying" a property in an attempt to keep its residents from being evicted.
Check out the livestream here. Protesters are setting up at the house right now, reportedly at 702 Vermont Ave. . Maybe their next target could be one of the foreclosures processed by infamously shady New York foreclosure mill the Steven J. Baum firm.
Now, protesters say they plan to Occupy Congress on Jan. 17, in the “largest Occupy protest ever!”
The protest is being timed with the start of the 2012 legislative session for Congress. Protesters say they hope to set up 1 million tents in front of the Capitol. “We’re taking the movement straight to their doorstep,” the protest’s Facebook page wrote.
