SDB Evening News Reads for 100611: About to whip somebody’s 1 percentPosted: October 6, 2011
Here is the link to the page that started it all: Occupy Wall Street | NYC Protest for American Revolution
Next we have the website Occupy Together:
Welcome to OCCUPY TOGETHER, an unofficial hub for all of the events springing up across the country in solidarity with Occupy Wall St. As we have followed the news on facebook, twitter, and the various live feeds across the internet, we felt compelled to build a site that would help spread the word as more protests organize across the country. We hope to provide people with information about events that are organizing, ongoing, and building across the U.S. as we, the 99%, take action against the greed and corruption of the 1%.
Here is a website that Occupy Together put up for a more organized way to find an Occupy protest near you…
Of course, as Boston Boomer pointed out this morning, MoJo is walking back its criticisms of the protest on Wall Street. They have a map and section up devoted to Occupy protest as they grow. Map: Occupy Wall Street Spreads Nationwide (Updated) | Mother Jones
Over at Salon: Occupy Wall Street – Salon.com
This next link is over at the big orange, and as a rule I avoid links to that site…but it is a good one so check it out: Daily Kos: Occupy Wall Street: List and map of over 200 U.S. solidarity events and Facebook pages
Unless otherwise noted, all of these links take you to Facebook pages, so you must be logged into Facebook in order to view them. Please, find an Occupy Wall Street Facebook group near you and sign up.
If you would rather not use Facebook, you can also connect to local Occupy Wall Street events through Meetup.com.
That Kos link is a wonderful source for FB pages.
At LittleSis, there was this post today…h/t Susie Madrak: The Public-Private Partnership Behind Zuccotti Park – Eyes on the Ties
It has not been reported, for instance, that Bloomberg’s longtime, live-in girlfriend, Diana Taylor, sits on the board of Brookfield. The relationship gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “public-private partnership.” Numerous articles have noted that Brookfield owns the park and is in close contact with the city about the situation there, but oddly enough no one seems to have looked at its board (not hard to do). The connection should confirm, in case there was any question, that Bloomberg and the owner of the park are in constant communication.
Great post there, give it a good read!
Google is planning to launch a new site….YouTube to launch political site – Ben Smith – POLITICO.com
The rise of YouTube was central to the transformation in political campaigns in the last decade, and the web video giant, now part of Google, is moving to centralize its political content into a single site, providing a hub for interested citizens, junkies and, of course, advertisers.
The company is launching a new section of its site, youtube.com/politics, exclusively to gather videos and information about the 2012 election.
On the site, each candidate will have a separate page, listing their most-watched videos, official campaign videos and stats on YouTube page views.
And speaking of Youtube, this little diddy is currently the ringtone of a woman that works at Walmart with my husband. I thought it was a perfect end for today’s post.
