Posted: 17 Oct 2011 11:26 AM PDT

Sunny days and freezing cold nights. Today it is the 3rd night young Danes camp out on Copenhagen City Hall Square. With inspiration from the Occupy Wall st. they already have a library, firewood kitchens and a consensus based meeting culture. And as in New York the occupiers are inspired by the Egyptian Revolution in February. They therefore renamed City Hall Square, Tahrir Square.

Occupy Wall Street Comes To Northeast Iowa

Posted: 17 Oct 2011 01:37 AM PDT

Saturday, October 15th, protesters gathered on the campus of the  University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa for a brief rally  before marching about two miles to the site of their occupation in  Overman Park.

 

After arriving at the park the first order of business was for everyone  to gather at a general assembly and set -up ground rules and committees.

 

Earlier in the week organizers meet with Cedar Falls Police. As long as  the ground rules aren't broken, the protesters are being allowed to stay  at Overman Park indefinitely. The park is directly across the street  from the city hall and the police station. The police station has  bathrooms that the protesters are allowed to use day or night.

Occupy Wall Street: Portraits of the People

Posted: 17 Oct 2011 12:12 AM PDT

There is an undeniable curiousity about who is filling Zuccoti Park.  As the protests have swelled in number, its supporters have come from an increasingly diverse array of backgrounds. 

 

The demands are as varied as the background of its supporters, and despite some of the obvious confrontation of the movement between the police, protest critics, and even at times with themselves, the most essential element of these protests is the dialogue being created for the American people by the Americans pictured here.

Occupy Las Vegas

Posted: 16 Oct 2011 03:12 PM PDT

Las Vegans marched on Fremont Street Oct. 15 to the beat of drummers and chants of "This is what democracy looks like." The 700-plus-person group of peaceful protestors replaced Elvis impersonators, show girls and street performers as the downtown Saturday-night spectacle that entertained photo-snapping tourists, many of which nodded and waved their approval, while others joined the march. This is the second Las Vegas march and first of a series of demonstrations scheduled over the next couple weeks by oocupylasvegas.org.

Paris, October 15, 2011: United For Global Change Protest

Posted: 16 Oct 2011 07:26 AM PDT

In Paris as in hundreds of cities around the world, "outraged" (*) have protested against the insecurity due to the crisis and the power of finance.

In France, the "outraged" struggle to draw crowds as youth unemployment is less massive than in other European countries. However, the demonstration has been relatively followed in Paris.

Groups gathered in the early afternoon in different places of the capital, particularly in front of the main railway stations and Place du Chatelet.

In the Belleville area  (this iReport), about 800 people gathered, preparing banners to go through the city and meet other groups place de l'Hôtel de ville.

Mainly young people but also retirees and families concerned with the future of their children have chanted, in a festive mood, slogans for "real democracy now":

"... another world is possible
we are the new 99% we are the anonymous, we are outraged
nonviolence = revolution
reloveution
if you don't let us dream, we won't let you sleep
sharing will save the world... "
(*) The 2011 Spanish protests, also referred to as the 15-M Movement or the Spanish revolution, are a series of ongoing peaceful demonstrations in Spain whose origin can be traced to social networks and Real Democracy NOW (Spanish: Democracia Real YA) among other civilian digital platforms and 200 other small associations. Compared with the Arab Spring and May 1968 in France, it started on 15 May with an initial call in 58 Spanish cities.
Since May 2011, the movement has become global and is deliberately informal and non political with several names around the world: 'We are the 99%', 'Occupy Wall Street' in the United States, 'Les Indignés' in France, M12M in Spain... But the manifesto is universal:
"The powers work for the benefit of a few, ignoring the will of the majority. This intolerable situation must stop...
... It is time for us to unite, it is time for them to listen.
We are not goods in the hands of bankers and politicians..."

Occupy Phoenix-Day2-Final Stand?

Posted: 16 Oct 2011 02:10 AM PDT

After photographing the protest earlier in the day I came back to my apartment in downtown Phoenix around 1130pm tonight and immediately noticed that something was not right. There was a police helicopter circling high above Hance Park which just happened to be where the protesters had decided to move the group to earlier in the day.

 

I knew I had to be there. With my camera bag ready I jumped in my truck and raced over to Hance Park about a mile away. When I arrived at the park I was greeted with, "park is closed sir" by a Phoenix Police Officer. Shining off the top of his riot helmet I could see flashlights in the near distance. Walking along the street to the interior of the park I saw the riot line of 50+ Officers. About 10 feet in front of them was a circle of devoted protesters.

 

Slowly moving forward every 5 minutes the riot line, one by one, removed the stubborn protestors while the rest of us watched.

 

During my time photographing tonight, I did not hear one chant or statement about Occupy Phoenix or the 99%! What did this smaller group stand for? And if they were with Occupy Phoenix, did this "sit in" help progress the Occupy movement any closer to its goals? What was the purpose of the Final Stand?

Occupy Phoenix-Oct. 15, 2011

Posted: 15 Oct 2011 08:53 PM PDT

Occupy Phoenix-October 15, 2011

 

 

It was an unusually hot day for this time of the year. The high turned out to be 100 F, but it did not stop the demonstrators. Cesar Chavez Plaza/Park was full. I mean really crowded. The people were there to express their solidarity with "Occupy Wall Street" and they were there because they were angry. Who were they angry with? Just check out some of the signs they carried.

 

There were speeches, chants, shouts and applause. Too bad I am hard of hearing and could not quite understand everything. That did not stop me though from picking up the energy of this frustrated, but hopeful crowd.

 

We came together because our gripes are similar and we share the hope that peaceful demonstrations will help us put our points across. I did see a few more aggressive signs though, some were warnings of spent patience. All in all, I sensed power in numbers and I felt like I was a part of the "99%" .

 

This is a movement greater and stronger than anything seen here in the US for decades. It is still shaping up, crystallizing and defining itself, but it is not going away. Well, it really does not have anywhere to go, except to intensify. Americans don't want to be held hostage by corporate greed, corporate-dictated politics and GOP power-seekers

Occupy Spokane: Intrepid Ireporter Gets Warning from Law Enforcement.

Posted: 15 Oct 2011 07:29 PM PDT

Well, I finally made it to an Occupy Wall Street event. I went to Spokane today to participate and capture the protest as Spokane joined the world in a unified voice of discontent.

 

Spokanites aren't known for their rebellious nature and this was evident today. The closest thing to a confrontation is when this "intrepid" ireporter was approached by security at the Bank of America offices and told I needed to get off private property. As you can see in the video, I did not argue. haha In retrospect I wish when he told me I was on private property I asked something like "Well who owns Bank of America?" Instead I jumped down from my ledge and got on the sidewalk without further incident. I am such a chicken. lol

 

I was very inspired and actually overcome with emotion joining in the protest and march through the financial district of Spokane. We started out at Riverfront Park, where the 1974 World's Fair was held.

 

I enjoyed being among the other protesters and I wish I'd been a bit more assertive and asked a few of the participants for their opinions. I just wasn't in the mood.

 

I hope this shows that the movement is made up of more than a bunch of unwashed hippies and lazy slackers. I'm getting a bit tired of that characterization. I sure didn't see a lot of dirty people or slackers. The slackers were all home on the couch.

 

Thanks for watching!

Occupy Naples

Posted: 15 Oct 2011 05:31 PM PDT

I went in search of the hippies. I went looking for the unemployed lazy bums who I had heard so much about-- you know, the ones who hate the rich. I went to gawk at the wild youth who would rather scream in protest and cause chaos in the city instead of getting a job... some news sources gave me the impression that is what I would find in the Occupy movement... some even suggested I would see communists and socialists. So I went. I wanted to see who these 99% are who have been marching in the streets across the world. I wanted to see who these radicals must be. Boy was I surprised.

 

Naples, Florida is a beautiful place. 5th Ave South is home to many businesses from amazing places to eat like Sushi Thai Too and it hosts upscale shops like Wind in the Willows for people who have the bucks to drop on adorable and pricey clothing. The street is a must see for tourists and the streets are full of people wandering the shops and enjoying dinner outside at sidewalk tables. Porsches, BMWs, Mercedes, and other expensive cars drive up and down the street. It is a place to show off - it is a place to be seen- it is a place to enjoy your money. So when I heard the Occupy Naples was going to be marching down 5th Ave S in Naples- I was intrigued.

 

I arrived at the protest a little early and watched people start to trickle in. It all began a couple of blocks down in the front of city hall. I kept my eyes out for hippies and wild youth with Anarchist t-shirts. I just knew they would arrive.. they had to - right? I mean this is a protest and these people hate the rich - right? Any moment I expected the bongo drummers to arrive with their destroy the rich T-shirts.

 

However, the people I saw arriving were not there screaming about taking the rich down. I started to read the signs.. I saw things like "End the wars and invest in home", "Don't cut the firefighters", "Restore Capitalism", "Corporate Union/Personhood? Money = Power", "Stop funding war Stop cuts to SSI and Medicare", and even some quotes from the bible. I looked and did not see any signs about taking the rich down. What I saw were signs about greed, corruption, and equality. I did not see signs asking for handouts.

 

But signs only tell so much. It is the people that hold them that hold the story.

 

One group I met was a family of four generations. I spoke to the great grandmother by the name of Betty. She was was there with her daughter, granddaughter, and great grandson. Betty has a great concern for our country. She is concerned about the low wages here and how a person cannot live on the wages being paid. (Naples is a very expensive place to live). She is worried about corruption in our government. "The money that is going to the politicians. They are not really working for us, they are working for Wall Street who pays them the bucks." Greed in corporate America has her worried and how it has affected the hard working people of this country - she is worried about people losing social security and people losing unemployment. She said we need to become better educated with our voting and we need to be aware of how our politicians are being bought. We can change things through our votes. She broke down when she talked about the ripping down of the unions and is very concerned about the middle class losing. Her daughter wants the future generation to have a chance... she worries about her Grandson and his opportunities. I went on to ask them if they have jobs, and yes the family is working or retired.. they are not hippies... no hippie ponytails, no anarchy T-shirts. They looked pretty normal and not one of them said anything about taking down the rich. From my talk with them it seems they want something better for the working people. Not one of them asked for a handout, but it seems they wanted accountability and the stop to corruption... they want Americans to have something called opportunity.

 

I ran into a group of younger people wandering through the crowd. Two of them were carrying guitars so I thought for a moment that I had finally found the hippies I had been seeking. It turns out that they had simply been playing music in the park and saw the group and decided to listen to what was being said.. and it turns out that they liked what they saw. one of the group was a young 18 year old named Melissa. She had recently lost her Grandparents and was upset how she saw them struggle so much on social security and how they had very little. She also has a job and she talked about how she was struggling to make ends meet. She works as a waitress and has dreams to go to college, but is worried she may never be able to afford that dream on a waitresses salary. No hippie- just a waitress trying to pay the bills.

 

Evidently my hippie finding skills were rusty so I decided to walk down to 5th Ave. to get ready for the march of the employed non hippies of Naples. On my short walk, I came across something even better than a hippie. Better than an angry unemployed generation Xer in a ripped anarchist T-shirt spouting socialist ideas.  I found one of the 1%. I must admit I was in a bit of awe since it was like finding a unicorn in a corn field- so my i reporter skills didn't kick in. He had a nice camera so I thought he was with the press- no he said "I am the 1%". I didn't have to ask him what he thought about the mostly conservatively dressed crowd who were now walking towards 5th Ave S. with their "Democracy Now" signs. He just told me that he thinks they made bad choices and it is more that they just want to blame others for those choices. He even thinks I made bad choices since I got my MFA- I forgot to ask what I should have studied. I asked him about those 1% who stand in solidarity with the 99% -like Warren Buffet. He said they are like the black swan. I should have asked him more.. I should have asked him about the bank bailouts and what he thought of those. I should have asked him about the idea that corporations are now deemed people. I really should have asked him about what people should be studying in school (only a few minutes before that I had been talking to a woman with a nursing degree who has been out of work for two years)- but I didn't. I only could say to him I that I couldn't find the hippies.

 

The marchers walked down one side of 5th Ave and up the other. They went to the corner of 41 and stood on the four corners waving their signs. When a car would drive by and honk they erupted in applause. I do think I may have seen one hippie, but mostly I saw regular non hippified people. I saw families, couples, young people in their twenties, well dressed retired people,  and middle aged people. I saw a group from Immokalee - a town not far from Naples where people work very low wages picking fruit and vegetables... not the kind of people who could afford much of a meal on 5th Ave S. and certainly not the kind of people who could afford to drive down the street in a Bentley. it was a mix of people that stood on the corners. A mix of people just like this country is... not just a bunch of hippies or free loaders. The people walking today seemed just like most of us - hardworking people who are sick and tired of so much that has gone wrong in our great country. They are not so radical as some people would have you believe. Trust me. I looked and listened. But then again- this is Naples... who knows - when the protest was over some may have driven away in Bentleys.. who knows how many black swans may have been standing with the Immokalee farm workers and retired individuals.

 

Did their prescence make a difference on 5th Ave S in Naples? I don't know. Something is happening though. Something is spreading in this world.. it has spread to South Florida. Nothing their signs or their words seemed to indicate anything extreme. I went to the Occupy today because I was not sure what I thought of them. I leave knowing I may just be one of them.

Posted: 15 Oct 2011 04:37 PM PDT

Today in Acacia Park, Colorado Springs, Colorado, a group of citizens (my estimate - about 100 or so) assembled to express their voice and outrage about the disparity between the wealthy 1% and the remaining 99% of American people.  The protest was peaceful with many people reminding people to respect the laws and keep side walks open. 

 

Colorado Springs is the conservative stronghold in Colorado and yet there is a growing contingent of voices speaking out for the 99% of American people.  Calling for responsible governement, stopping corporate purchasing of our Democracy and more.

The indignados try to occupy Schuman Square in Brussels

Posted: 15 Oct 2011 03:27 PM PDT

Between 6000 and 10000 people marched today in Brussels, putting the capital of Europe on the map of the so-called global revolution.

 

The "indignados" marched through Brussels all afternoon, carrying signs that read "direct democratie" and "displeased by the global economic dictature".

 

The Belgian Police did not allow the protesters to take over Schuman Square, where two main European Union institutions are located.

 

The protesters chanted in French "the Police is with us" under the vigilatory eyes of the Police. They also asked the policemen to renegade their officials and join the movement, since they are also victims of the crisis.

 

After 20 minutes of protests in Schuman Square, the riot police took off their helmets and put on their regular caps. No clashes between protesters and Police were reported.
