NYPD continue to deny occupiers in Liberty Plaza, a.k.a. Zuccotti Park the option of setting up tents.   No further moves to oust the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) have occurred since the attempt to circulate an eviction notice days ago.   OWS is making efforts to communicate with the owners of occupied Zuccotti Park Brookfield Properties (listed on the NYSE as BPO).

Participation increases to over 2,000 protesters at any one time during work week days and to nearly 5,000 on weekends.   Even this slow growth is an incredible feat considering the fact that this 24/7 event has endured 13 straight days.

OWS's Community Outreach team has been canvassing the areas of the outer boroughs.  

The Labor outreach team has reported they have been inundated with requests from various unions around the city.   On Monday, OWS rallied with the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) at a mid-town Manhattan USPS facility.   Another joint union rally is planned with District Council 37, NYC largest municipal public employees' union with 175,000 members.

Additionally, occupations are now ongoing in Los Angeles, CA and Chicago, IL.

Nationwide, affiliated OWC movement events are beginning in Lexington, KY; Kansas City, MO; Washington D.C.; Sacramento, San Jose and San Francisco, CA; Las Vegas NV, Houston, and Dallas, TX this coming week.   Philadelphia, PA, Boston, MA, Seattle, WA and Tampa, FL are holding planning meetings in the coming days.  

Reports that over one hundred rank and file NYPD police officers are refusing over-time in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street remain unconfirmed.

Demands and Principles Update:

A working draft of the NYC General Assembly's Principles of Solidarity has been released.   It can be read HERE.

Ideas about demands and the process of reaching consensus on demands continues.   Generally, the demands all surround issues of oppression including wealth inequity, banking and economic corruption, unemployment, health care profiteering, press censorship and media access, curtailing U.S. government imperialist actions including the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, ending capital punishment and taking actions to preventing corporate influence over elections and government policy decision.
