A List for Journalists Who Think That Occupy is “Dead”

By: Tuesday January 31, 2012 10:50 am

Occupy Supply was able to buy five new command post tents worth $5000 each for a fraction of that price, but when it came time to decide which occupations got them, we opted to do it in the most democratic way possible: allow people to nominate occupations based on their activism history, and then let our community decide where they should go.

Kevin Gosztola or Lawrence of Arabia?

Kevin Gosztola continues his tour of the north east occupations. Mark Haller sent this photo today of Kevin’s arrival at the Perry Park gazebo where Occupy Erie continues their occupation despite 8 police raids.

Call Mayor Miner, Common Council President Robinson & Finance Commissioner Delvecchio and stop the eviction of Perseverence Park.

FDL OccupySupply State of the Occupation: Updated List of Encampments Across the Country

The list of Occupy encampments across the country drops to 62 this week, down from 66 on December 28.  Surprisingly few  have been lost to cold weather — far more are the victims of quick & dirty legislation passed by local city councils that have ignored homeless issues for decades, but are suddenly consumed with an overwhelming concern for “public safety.”
