Plastic handcuffs would not hold on one protester arrested even though he was not resisting. He raised his arm to show the police he was still unrestrained with a total of four plastic straps broken.   They tried again.   (Is the NYPD getting their supplies from China?   Too much melamine, perhaps?)

The protest is being run as a consensus building democracy.  You go, you have a say in what goes on. (A bit unAmerican at this point, but refreshing, wouldn't you agree?)

At 10:30 last night a spokesperson for a working group of Occupy Wall Street General Assembly (OWS-GA, my acronym not theirs) announced plans for a rally on Thursday, September 22, 2011. 

Another OWS-GA working group deciding demands had not yet come to a decision.

Earlier, police confiscated gasoline effectively cutting off electrical power provided to the gathering by portable generators.   At last report a resupply of gasoline had not arrived and was thought to be delayed or intercepted by heavy police protection around the perimeter of the plaza.

Laptop batteries were needed to continue to power equipment running a live video stream on the internet: Global Revolution.   

The live feed was up at about 9:20 p.m. and was expected to last for a couple of hours.   By then the number of people watching had dropped to under 3,000 due to the feed being down for hours.

The live video feed was not operating this morning.

During the day the tweeter hashtag #OccupyWallStreet was apparently blocked.   Supporters immediately switched to #globalrevolution and #takewallstreet without missing a beat.

Unconfirmed: Roseanne Barr made an appearance and spoke.   Police confiscated the gasoline generators.   In retrospect, the tweets and other reports coming out of the protest were reliable.   If you can confirm the above, please comment.

The Party of Wall Street (please credit Dr. David Harvey for the term) was unimpressed.   

Tweets from Goldman Sachs analysts mocked the protesters saying they would protest with a sign: "Goldman Sachs: Win, cheat, or quit. We don't f*cking lose - ever."   (Interesting, that would be a good banner for the protesters as well.) Other Wall Street executives claimed they didn't listen to what the protesters were chanting or care.
