September 29, 2011 - BREAKING NEWS:

According to DNAInfo's Crime & Safety Report, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said today that the NYPD cound not bar protesters from Zuccotti Park because the agreement with the city requires the park to be open 24 hours a day.

Confirmation the Transit Workers Union, representing over 200,000 members in 22 states is now supporting Occupy Wall Street.   

Jim Gannon spokesperson for the TWU says, " Yes, our Executive Board endorsed it, but we haven't [made] any official statements on it, and only individual members have spent time there so far."

NYC members plan on joining the Closing Bell March at 4:00 on Friday, September 30th. 

Despite rainy weather, lack of shelter and increasing illness due to exposure, the Wall Street overnight occupiers' numbers have grown 33% from 200 on the first day, September 17th to over 300 recently according to a Time Magazine reporter.

Today, a Precinct community council is being held regarding NYPD Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna at 16 Erickson Place NY, NY.  He was the officer caught on video that pepper sprayed marchers bound for Union Square this past Saturday.  Occupiers are planning on making a calm, non-violent presence at the event.

Frequently on marches through the narrow canyons of lower Manhattan's financial district, protesters are gawked at by the wealthy patrons of Harry Cipriani.  Lately, it has become something of a ritual for the haut monde to sip champagne smiling down at the rabble from the plush second floor balcony.  Video HERE
