Coverage also from our very own Ezra Silk ’10 (former Argus editor), Ashik Siddique ’10, Gianna Palmer ’10, and Ryan Villareal at America, Occupied (and, for more extended coverage, at their blog of the same name)
Hearkening back to my post earlier this week on the eviction of Occupy Wall Street comes today’s previously planned day of action in New York City, marking the two-month anniversary of the beginning of the Occupation in Liberty Square/Zuccotti Park. Thus far, today, upwards of 200 protestors have been arrested, thousands have marched, and this is only the beginning. (Where might the city’s illustrious mayor be at this climactic time, you ask? Why, meeting with business leaders, including Rupert Murdoch, of course.)
Other events planned for today include an occupation of the subway, a rally at City Hall, and, subsequently, a march to the Brooklyn Bridge.
If you’re feeling a little “Che” today yourself, be sure to join the Occupy Wesleyan demonstration, starting at 4pm at Olin (for more information, check out DMZ‘s baller post). Viva la Revolución!
