This morning Occupy Wall Street put out the word that more reinforcements were needed.  Last night there was a discussion that the 5,000 in Liberty Plaza would feel more comfortable about deterring any police action if the gathering was at least 10,000.


Thousands Occupy Wall Street @ NYSE by The Transmitter Group

Above is the image the authorities did their best to stop on Saturday, September 17 by closing all entries to Wall Street.  Protesters in front of the sacrosanct NYSE. 

(As I did yesterday - I will post time stamped updates as revisions to this article above.  I will be at the event on Thursday, September 22nd.)

About a thousand people camped out last night at what was Zoccotti Park, a privately owned park BTW, now renamed Liberty Plaza, which was its name when there was a bit more democracy available in NYC.

Yesterday the occupational gathering swelled to about 5,000 when the work day was done.   A local pizzeria sold $2,800 worth of "Occu Pies" 99% cheese and 1% pig to hungry protesters. Donations for food on We Pay were close to $10,000 at last check.


Tarps over communications equipment by Global Revolution

On Saturday, September 17th, the first day of the occupation, Wall Street was closed and nobody was allowed near the NYSE.  Yesterday, that changed with the beginning of the work week.  Can't let some but no others on public street.  

The police tactics are now turning to petty harassment and intimidation to discourage others from physically coming to join the protest.

Op-ed News has now confirmed 11 arrests over the 3 plus days record:   

Two for protecting video equipment with tarps in the rain this morning.

One for jumping police barrier (photographer/witness said there was no police barrier jumping)

One for chalk drawing/writing on the sidewalk

Two for attempting to enter of Bank of America branch masked, a third perpetrator got away (Kinda' dumb, but it broke the ice.  What's demonstration without any arrests? A picnic.)

And four for wearing masks in public.
