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, "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."
