Occupied Wall Street Journal, second issue by Occupied Wall Street Journal

New Yorkers are saying, "Enough already!"

And so are the rest of the 99 percent.

The Occupied Wall Street Journal has begun publication from a secret location, documenting the occupation and offering practical information on getting involved.

According to Anastasia Churkina of RT, NY, 50,000 copies of the first issue of the paper were gone within two days. So were 100,000 of the second issue. The paper does not have advertisers. $75,000 was donated to start it up.

Michael Levitin, former freelance writer for Newsweek, LA Times, and Associated Press is managing editor. 

Jed Brandt, publisher of the Occupied Wall Street Journal, says: "What most Americans believe is not allowed on television. They'll have the same commentators, telling us the same issues over and over, pointing fingers, telling us who to hate and fear. We need to provide something for people all across the country that encourages them to directly participate."

According to breakingcopy.com, "On Saturday, October 8, the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators in Lower Manhattan handed out the second issue of the Occupied Wall Street Journal.

"The front page story is called "The Most Important Thing in the World." It's an edited version of a speech by author Naomi Klein, and was also published by The Nation .

"The speech offers a look back at the economic justice movement since 1999, along with advice for how the protestors can succeed in the face of a well-funded and well-entrenched opposition. Klein stresses nonviolence, and concludes that this movement is the most important thing in the world."
