TV Interview with occupiers OWS 9/22/11 by Public Intelligence

Crowds during the day were thinned by rain but the Closing Bell March went off as schedules at 4:30 p.m.

Last night, the NYPD provide the OWS media team with a giant picnic umbrella to protect the live video feed and other communications computers from the heavy rains.  The media team did a live video shout-out of thanks to the NYPD for their help.  

Tarps and tents are still not allowed in Liberty Plaza at this time.

Several protesters claim to have overheard individual police officers discussing tacit personal, not official, support of the protest.  

The occupiers are generally trying to maintain working relations with the police though some are totally opposed to the police presence and are quick to voice their distrust.

MSM Media Blackout: Commentary

In the next few days Occupy Wall Street will have more and more going for it and be better prepared the inevitable MSM close-up and scrutiny.
