The people protesting in NYC in the Occupy Wall Street action are succeeding. They are inspiring actions elsewhere.

Protests are happening or being scheduled to happen in the next few days all over America. 

700 Protesters walked from where they'd been protesting to the Brooklyn Bridge. Police walked along with them, about a third of the way onto the bridge, then starting using orange mesh nets to "kettle" the protesters and arrest them. People walking on wooden walkways about 15 feet above the roadway were left alone.

The International Business Times reports that a court in London found that kettling used against G20 protesters in 2009 was illegal.

Protesters occupied McPherson Square in Washington DC Saturday, October 1, calling for repeal of Citizens United and Corporate Personhood, the Huffingtonpost reports.

This should be a very interesting week. 

Post information about your local protest plans in the comments.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
