For Massachusetts readers:, a crisis plea from Occupy Boston.

Police are gathering in mass to remove Occupy Boston campers from the North Camp expansion and possibly from the Main Camp tonight at midnight, by force if necessary. We are calling for all able-bodied volunteers to come lock arms with us in solidarity and defend this Occupation from any police presence that may arrive. Please write the number for the National Lawyers Guild, 617-227-7335 on your body as well as a personal contact, and in the event of your arrest call a family member or other trusted contact with that information so the NLG can represent you.

For ongoing updates follow @Occupy_Boston on twitter or text "OccupyBoston" as one word to 443322.

They have desperately put out a call for people, food, and water, plus tents and sleeping bags, so that they can hold the site. They also need Boston Mayor Mennino's switchboard -- 617-635-4500 -- to be flooded with calls demanding that the police not interfere with Occupy Boston. They are obviously quite concerned about the public's response. So call now!

Also tweet @massgovernor and @mayortommenino -with pleas that they stop the police attack. Don't wait till it is too late.
