Occupy Wall Street

NYPD Presence At The Occupy Wall Street Concert

There were plenty of police (and barricades) around Foley Square on September 16, the anniversary of the Occupy movement, but nothing like when a politician or other political operative appears in the city.

Video: Palin Takes On Occupiers

A few protesters tried to disrupt Sarah Palin's speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference today. They didn't last long: the crowd (and Palin herself!) chanted "USA, USA" at the occupiers as security removed them.

Iowa Coffee Shop Tosses A Group Of Occupiers

The owner of Java Joe's in Des Moines gave the boot to a handful of Occupy Iowa demonstrators Friday morning. The coffee shop's proprietor, who was hosting a scheduled appearance by GOP hopeful Newt Gingrich, said she "had to shut [the protest] down" and "couldn't stand it."

Police Clear One Man From Occupy "Site" In Texas

My hometown paper reported yesterday that "police confiscated signs and other items from the Occupy Fort Worth site" yesterday -- but there was just, like, one guy there. "Before it got cold maybe six dudes were hangin' out," one local told BuzzFeed. "They were about as distracting to motorists as those guys dressed in gorilla costumes waving around vacuum-for-sale signs." Check out the before/after photos of the sleepy Texas town's "site" below.

Occupy Melbourne's Tent Monsters

It’s illegal to camp out in the parks in Melbourne, Australia, so protesters decided to wear their tents as clothing. In America, this is what we would call trolling the cops.

The venerable Senator (and Occupy Wall Street supporter) Bernie Sanders held a town hall meeting at a Vermont high school last weekend, where World War II Veteran Verne McGrew stole the show. Listen to the kind man's wise words.

Occupy Wall Streeter Calls Ai Weiwei Selfish For Not Liking Occupy Wall Street Enough

This is the same Ai Weiwei who was arrested by the Chinese government for his human rights activism, so, yeah...how dare he not be more involved. From an MSNBC live chat with the outspoken artist, who still faces threat of imprisonment for his struggle against the repressive regime. A commenter named Angelina didn't think Ai was sufficiently reverential in his response about OWS. This is infuriating.

#OWS Protestors Interrupt President Obama

A group of Occupy Wall Street protestors interrupted President Obama during a speech promoting his jobs bill in Manchester, NH. I don't know about you, but I think he handled it pretty well.

Fox News On Pepper Spray: "It's A Food Product, Essentially"

I will say that for one brief second Megyn Kelly seems to concede that this was a bad move by police. But then Bill O'Reilly comes out and says, "I don't think we have the right to Monday-morning quarterback the police. Particularly at a place like UC Davis, which is a fairly liberal campus." What does that even mean?

Video Of A War Vet Getting Beaten By Police At Occupy Oakland

In the video, Kayvan Sabehgi, war veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan who claims he was peacefully protesting as part of the Occupy Oakland, Calif., movement on November 2nd. He was protesting in front of line of marching police officers in riot gear. At one point, a single officer appears to command Sabehgi to leave before shoving him and hitting him with a nightstick.

We Are The 99.99%

Are we the 99 percent? "The Guardian" crunches the numbers behind Occupy Wall Street's rallying cry.

UC Davis Students Pepper Sprayed During Peaceful Demonstration

Police maced a group of students at the University of California, Davis, yesterday after they refused to remove their tents from the quad. About 50 protesters have been camping out there since they were kicked out of the administration building two days prior. No fatal injuries were reported on the scene, but ... I'm not so sure UC Davis police can justify their actions here.

Nothing like a little bat-signal-style protest. The side of the Verizon Building has been displaying pro-99% messages this evening as protestors marched across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Is Anne Hathaway Occupying Wall Street?

Twitter user @Elana_Brooklyn tweeted a photo of someone who resembles the star holding a sign that said "Blackboards Not Bullets" during today's protests in Union Square. Hathaway does live in New York and her newest movie, "The Dark Knight Rises," did just wrap filming near Zuccotti Park, but it's hard to tell if it's her. What do you think?

OWS Raid Set To "New York, New York"

Filmmaker Casey Neistat filmed the November 15th OWS raid and set the beautifully tense scene to the iconic "New York, New York". If you can make it there you can make it anywhere. (Best bit is at 3:05)

Zuccotti Park Zoo: Being There

Cinema verite-style documentary footage of Zuccotti Park at night, before it got cleared out by NYC police on November 15, 2011.

Ally Bank Commercial Remixed As A Bank Robbery

This politically-charged mashup edits Ally Bank's "Stop Accepting Nonsense" commercial the way it should be -- with spliced fragments of bank heists from Hollywood movies. That's your money they're taking.

Occupy D.C. Comics

"Village Voice" cartoonist Ward Sutton had some ideas of his own how D.C. Comics should reboot their characters. It's never too late, D.C.! We've got at least an entire year until Election merch goes bad.
