Occupy Wall Street Applies for Occupy Wall Street™

Remember when the post reported that a non OWS protester was being all capitalist and shit trying to trademark the name "Occupy Wall Street" so that he can sell t-shirts, bags, and other swag. Well I guess the OWS organizers realized that they can be capitalist too. So they are taking some of that capital they rose to register the name Occupy Wall Street.

There have been a number of bad faith attempts to trademark Occupy Wall Street for business purposes. Now the protest organizers themselves are trying to trademark Occupy Wall Street themselves.

According to the filing, the trademark would cover everything from "periodicals and newsletters," to "t-shirts, sweatshirts, headwear, and jackets." Maybe a line of beer cozies as well?

Is NYPD Sending Drunk Homeless People to Occupy Wall Street?

The NYPD has allegedly come up with an ingenious way to sabotage the Occupy Wall Street protest in lower Manhattan: Just send drunks and homeless people down there!
The increased presence of homeless drug addicts and drunks has been causing tension in Zuccotti Park. Apparently the amount of "freeloaders" caused the Occupy Wall Street kitchen to scale back operations for a few days in protest. The Daily News today reportsthat the place has basically become divided between "real" occupy wall street protesters on the east, and the homeless riffraff on the West: There is now a "wrong side of the tracks" at Zuccotti Park.
According to Daily News op-ed contributor Harry Siegel, this shift has been helped along by friendly NYPD officers:
The NYPD seems to have crossed a line in recent days, as the park has taken on a darker tone with unsteady and unstable types suddenly seeming to emerge from the woodwork. Two different drunks I spoke with last week told me they'd been encouraged to "take it to Zuccotti" by officers who'd found them drinking in other parks, and members of the community affairs working group related several similar stories they'd heard while talking with intoxicated or aggressive new arrivals.
An NYPD spokesperson told Salon that the report is false. Regardless, the homeless population has put Occupy Wall Street in the awkward position of calling on the cops for help dealing with troublemakers in their rule-breaking encampment: Fuck the police! Unless we need the police!
It really is a brilliant, if supremely scummy, move by NYPD if true. Much has been made of the protest's embodied nature: They say the micro-community in Zuccotti Park is supposed to represent some ideal version of society where everyone has a say, and the pizza is free. How can they turn away the least-savory of the 99% without basically becoming The Man they've spent the last few weeks protesting? The homelessness issue could be Occupy Wall Street's Animal Farm moment.

Red October

It began as “peaceful protests” on the 17th day of September – the month of the Autumn Equinox (Sept. 21 – Mabron – a very special  ritual day ordained by WICCA, Kaballa, and Pagan practitioners of Lucifer as the day of atonement and the “releasing of prisoners” – both political and economic.)  The protest began at a specific city which was the financial heart of THE pre-eminent global capitalist “Republic” -  a world-power center of wealth and influence unequalled in the entire world at that specific time. The nation, however, had been in a Great Recession for three years. Factories were closing their doors, and unemployment had reached 36%.  The national debt to the world central bank was crippling in every way.  Inflation had successful eroded the wages of the people by 50%. The future of this once great nation was bleak in every way.

The message of the “protesters” was a simple one – the “working people” were the unwitting slaves of BIG BUSINESS and COPORATE GREED – a mere 1% (the “ruling class) were robbing the “people” (the remaining 99%) of their wealth and property.   It was not just a single day of protests, but was scheduled to last for many months.  Eventually, the “movement” spread to every other major city in the country – as well as other foreign nations.

If you think I am describing the 2011 OWS (Occupy Wall Street) and America the Beautiful, you are wrong.  I am reciting the exact history of the Bolshevik Revolution (Red October) that eventually dismantled the Russian Republic of Czar Nicholas.

According to Wikipedia:  “Nationwide crisis had developed in Russia affecting social, economic, and political relations. Disorder in industry and transport had intensified, and difficulties in obtaining provisions had increased. Gross industrial production in 1917 had decreased by over 36 percent from what it had been in 1916. By September, as much as 50 percent of all enterprises were closed down in the Urals,, the Donbas, and other industrial centers, leading to mass unemployment. At the same time, the cost of living increased sharply. The real wages of the workers fell about 50 percent from what they had been in 1913. Russia’s national debt in October 1917 had risen to 50 billion rubles. Of this, debts to foreign governments constituted more than 11 billion rubles. The country faced the threat of financial bankruptcy.

Stacey Hessler is a selfish deadbeat mom

On October 28th we reported a story about a selfish cow of a woman that left her responsibilities as a mother and wife to go to New York City to play activist at occupy wall street article here. Its horriable when a man leaves his family and I will be damned if they paint this whore as a hero. She is no hero she has a responsibilty to take care of her family first and foremost. I found it ironic what i found on her Facebook wall at  where she is using a cell phone from a corporation to post on her wall
Now Network from Sprint is an evil corporation but perfect for dead beat mothers

They even put a support page for Stupid Stacey Hessler at

What a nutjob this lady is. Most of the people of Occupy are young, single people with no kids and little responsibilities. She has 4 kids, so you'd think she has some responsibility. But she chose this movement over her family, good luck wacko!It's fortunate that this deadbeat mother has a well to do banker (soon to be ex) husband to support her kids. It's one thing to be politically active, it's another to do so at the expense of your first priority, your family.

I highly encourage people to go and show your "support" for deadbeat parents. This is unforgivable for a mother to destroy her children with her absence. and what about her husband just because he works in a back to provide for his family is no fucking excuse to leave him to go protest and hook up with some one else. SHAME ON YOU STACEY HESSLER. YOU HAVE EARNED BITCH OF THE CENTURY.

she said in her interview that she was not going back home to her family.............mother of the year? I think not Her kids now know she would rather fold clothes for and hug strangers than tuck them into bed and give them a kiss goodnight

Ivan Marovic of 'Otpor!' addresses Occupy Wall Street

As to the speculation and mounting evidence of faux revolutionaries and professional protesters infiltrating OWS, here is one more: Ivan Marovic is a big name indeed in the Balkans. He is one of the best Soros operatives in matters social engineering of the rogue rebel uprising kind. Marovic and his group Otpor single-handedly orchestrated the overthrow of Milosevic.

Marovic and his group Otpor are known top notch Soros and CIA assets. And surprise! The group of rent-a-rebels somehow made it all the way from the Balkans to NYC to lead OWS.....

A large and well-organized group of "freedom fighters" from the Balkans chartered a plane wne went to NYC to run a part of OWS? Connect the dots yourself.

Here's Marovic in NYC leading OWS: ~Silvija Germek

How Occupy Wall Street Cost Me My Job

Joining the Occupy Wall Street protests has its dangers. You could get pepper-sprayed or end up in handcuffs. Or, as Brooklyn-based journalist Caitlin Curran explains, your boss could see a photo of you holding up a sign at a protest and fire you the next day.
It all started with an article on The Atlantic's web site. Conor Friedersdorf's piece "Occupy Wall Street's Greatest Strength Is Neutering It," echoed what many people are wondering about the movement: what are they fighting for?
Friedersdorf criticized the Occupy movement for rallying against a symbolic, abstract Wall Street—"the average American's idea of Wall Street," rather than against specific people, regulations, or the board at Goldman Sachs, for example. The case against symbolic Wall Street is much weaker than the one against actual Wall Street, Friedersdorf wrote. Occupy supporters shouldn't focus on the impossible debate about whether or not Wall Street is good or evil, but instead should ask concrete questions, like whether regulations should exist for derivatives of mortgaged-backed securities. The Occupy movement has attracted many supporters who blame "Wall Street" for the present state of our economy. But for many people that's a confusing argument. Friedersdorf summed it up:
Figuring out precisely how to feel about Occupy Wall Street or ‘We are the 53 Percent' is difficult for many. Much easier to decide that it's wrong to create a mortgage-backed security filled with loans you know are going to fail so that you can sell it to a client who isn't aware that you sabotaged it by intentionally picking the misleadingly rated loans most likely to be defaulted upon.
My boyfriend, Will, and I decided to take Friedersdorf's words and use them, perhaps more literally than he intended. We printed them out, taped them to poster board, and headed to the Occupy Wall Street march in Times Square, on October 15. The plan was for Will to hold the sign, and for me to observe what happened and post reports to my personal Twitter account. (Video of Will attracting attention with the sign before I did is on your right, or click here to watch it.) But, inevitably, Will developed sign-holding fatigue, and I took over momentarily. I was standing beneath a news ticker near West 43rd Street and Broadway, and people began cheering as a headline about the movement scrolled across the ticker. I looked up, and at that moment a photographer took a photo of me holding the sign, andposted it to Twitter shortly thereafter.
The next day, Boing Boing co-editor Xeni Jardin posted the photo as the site's Occupy Wall Street sign of the day, the post circulated around Tumblr, Friedersdorf himself saw it and wrote about it, as did Felix Salmon at Reuters, who called me "one of those protestors that photographers dream of" and the sign "true, and accurate, and touching, and grammatical, and far too long to be a slogan, and gloriously bereft of punctuation, and ending even more gloriously in a mildly archaic preposition."
Beyond that, Salmon noted, the sign's internet notoriety showed that there was something about it that resonated with people. Which was really the whole point of why we made the sign, and of Friedersdorf's piece.
I thought all of this could be fodder for an interesting segment on The Takeaway—a morning news program co-produced by WNYC Radio and Public Radio International—for which I had been working as a freelance web producer roughly 20 hours per week for the past seven months. I pitched the idea to producers on the show, in an e-mail.
The next day, The Takeaway's general manager fired me over the phone, effective immediately. He was inconsolably angry, and said that I had violated every ethic of journalism, and that this should be a "teaching moment" for me in my career as a journalist. The segment I had pitched, of course, would not happen. Ironically, the following day Marketplace did pretty much the exact segment I thought would have been great on The Takeaway, with Kai Ryssdal discussing the sign and the Goldman Sachs deal it alluded to in terms that were far from neutral.
That same week Lisa Simeone was in a similar situation. Simeone is a Baltimore-based freelance journalist, former host of the public radio program "Soundprint," and current host of "The World of Opera," which NPR announced last week it will no longer distribute. She was fired from "Soundprint,"after conservative site The Daily Callercriticized her (and NPR) for supporting Occupy D.C. Simeone and I don't know each other, though we do have some similarities: we're both journalists, both of us were at one time affiliated with NPR in some way, and I grew up in Baltimore, where Simeone lives now.
When last week's events first came to light, she told the Baltimore Sun: "I find it puzzling that NPR objects to my exercising my rights as an American citizen - the right to free speech, the right to peaceable assembly—on my own time in my own life… I've never brought a whiff of my political activities into the work I've done for NPR World of Opera. What is NPR afraid I'll do—insert a seditious comment into a synopsis of Madame Butterfly?"
I attempted to find others, besides myself and Simeone, who have been fired for their involvement with the Occupy movement, but wasn't able to find anyone who wanted to go on the record about it—though I did get a prompt response from Occupy Wall Street's media desk, and an e-mail from someone in Mobile, Alabama saying "Occupy Wall Street folks don't have jobs, if they did they would not be there in the middle of the work week," further proof of the national confusion over who Occupiers are.
These are issues that will become ingrained in the movement as it evolves, and that potential protesters and their employers will need to face as Occupy becomes "mainstreamed," as Katha Pollitt called it in the Nation last week. Pollitt pointed out that, just a few weeks ago the few media outlets acknowledging Occupy mostly saw it as a rag-tag collection of hippies. Now, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke is saying he "can't blame" protesters for being angry, and Suze Orman is challenging its detractors, saying "to deride the movement because it has yet to formulate a well-delineated platform says plenty more about the critics than the protestors."
How Occupy Wall Street Cost Me My JobMy thinking ran along the same lines as Simeone's. It's unclear to me how our participation, on our personal time, in a non-partisan movement warrants termination from our jobs. If the protest is so lacking, in terms of message and focus, then how can my involvement with it go against The Takeaway's ethical policies? In other words, if I'm associated with a party-less movement (and barely associated, since that was only the second time I've attended an Occupy Wall Street event), and have never exercised bias in editing The Takeaway's website, what's the harm?
On one hand, isn't it great that, as Friedersdorf wrote, our "decentralized networked-era culture" makes a movement like this possible, and as Salmon wrote, "the sentiment behind Occupy Wall Street has resonated worldwide," as a result. But on the other hand, we live in an age where I can carry a sign expressing a non-partisan, seemingly inarguable message at a peaceful protest, unknowingly have my photo taken and disseminated around the world, and subsequently be fired as a result, all within a matter of days. What are the implications of this for a democracy founded on free speech ideals? Are these "teaching moments" like mine going to dissuade people who have jobs they want to keep from expressing their opinions, however benign?

Occupy Wall Street Is Without Power

The no-fun brigade at the FDNY took all of Occupy Wall Street's gas generators this morning, leaving them without power or heat as an especially chilly weekend approaches.
According to Mayor Bloomberg, about 30 firefighters swept the park and confiscated six generators and 13 fuel containers because they are fire hazards. They were on the lookout for open fires and stoves, which must sound pretty tempting to protesters camped out in what may be a snowy weekend. The Observer paints a bleak picture of protesters' winter-preparedness. But one protester told the New York Post: "I lived in Alaska and worked on a fishing boat—this is nothing."
We're beginning to feel like our December 10th prediction of the end of the occupation at Zuccotti Park might be a little generous. Maybe fishing dude will prove us wrong and last the winter wrapped up in a dozen sleeping bags.

Obama Losing OccupyWallStreet Support

Obama Has Even Lost The 'Occupy Wall Street' Crowd
Glynnis MacNicol
Oct. 28, 2011

If President Obama is hoping that his support of the Occupy Wall Street movement will help his reelection chances he may want to take a look at this poll.

The New York Times reports on a poll done by a Fordham University political science professor that reveals what some have long suspected: Occupy Wall St. is mainly made up of (very) disgruntled Obama supporters.

Check out these numbers.

Sixty percent of those surveyed said they voted for Barack Obama in 2008, and about three-quarters now disapprove of Mr. Obama’s performance as president. A quarter said they were Democrats, but 39 percent said they did not identify with any political party. Eleven percent identified as Socialists, another 11 percent said they were members of the Green Party, 2 percent were Republicans and 12 percent say they identified as something else.

Emphasis mine.

Those are brutal numbers. And suggest that essentially what we are seeing with the Occupy Wall St. movement is 2008's unprecedented youth support for Obama grown bitterly cynical.

That Obama can win back that support with any gesture seems unlikely, but he's certainly going to have to do a great deal more than throw obscure 99% references into phone calls by his advisers.

OccupyWall Street Protests Feeding Homeless

Occupy Wall Street kitchen staff protesting fixing food for freeloaders


October 27, 2011

The Occupy Wall Street volunteer kitchen staff launched a “counter” revolution yesterday -- because they’re angry about working 18-hour days to provide food for “professional homeless” people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters.

For three days beginning tomorrow, the cooks will serve only brown rice and other spartan grub instead of the usual menu of organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, and roasted beet and sheep’s-milk-cheese salad.

They will also provide directions to local soup kitchens for the vagrants, criminals and other freeloaders who have been descending on Zuccotti Park in increasing numbers every day.

To show they mean business, the kitchen staff refused to serve any food for two hours yesterday in order to meet with organizers to air their grievances, sources said.

As the kitchen workers met with the “General Assembly’’ last night, about 300 demonstrators stormed from the park to Reade Street and Broadway, where they violently clashed with cops.

Officers made at least 10 arrests when rowdy demonstrators refused to get out of the street and stop blocking traffic. A dozen cops on scooters tried to force them back to the sidewalk.

There were no reported injuries.

The demonstrators said they were angry over the violence in Oakland.

After making their way to Union Square, many of the protesters returned to Zuccotti.

The Assembly announced the three-day menu crackdown announced earlier in the day -- insisting everybody would be fed something during that period.

Some protesters threatened that the high-end meals could be cut off completely if the vagrants and criminals don’t disperse.

Unhappiness with their unwelcome guests was apparent throughout the day.

“We need to limit the amount of food we’re putting out” to curb the influx of derelicts, said Rafael Moreno, a kitchen volunteer.

A security volunteer added that the cooks felt “overworked and underappreciated.”

Many of those being fed “are professional homeless people. They know what they’re doing,” said the guard at the food-storage area.

Today, a limited menu of sandwiches, chips and some hot food will be doled out -- so legitimate protesters will have a day to make arrangements for more upscale weekend meals.

Protesters got their first taste of the revolt within the revolt yesterday when the kitchen staff served only peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and chips after their staff meeting.

Organizers took other steps to police the squatters, who they said were lured in from other parks with the promise of free meals.

A team of 10 security volunteers moved in to the trouble-prone southwest section of Zuccotti Park in a show of force to confront them.

“We’re not going to let some members of this community destroy the whole movement,” a volunteer said.

Some arguments broke out as the security team searched tents -- but no violence erupted.

Overall security at the park had deteriorated to the point where many frightened female protesters had abandoned the increasingly out-of-control occupation, security- team members said.

Rumors swirled that one homeless man had pulled a knife in a dispute the night before -- and that there had been yet another case of groping.

But protesters and a cop on duty told The Post that most of the crime goes unreported, because of a bizarre “stop snitching” rule.

“What’s happening in there is staying in there,” said the cop.

Loving Mother Leaves Family for OWS Protest

NY Post

A married mother of four from Florida ditched her family to become part of the raggedy mob in Zuccotti Park -- keeping the park clean by day and keeping herself warm at night with the help of a young waiter from Brooklyn.

“I’m not planning on going home,” an unapologetic Stacey Hessler, 38, told The Post yesterday.

“I have no idea what the future holds, but I’m here indefinitely. Forever,” said Hessler, whose home in DeLand sits 911 miles from the tarp she’s been sleeping under.

Hessler -- who ironically is married to a banker -- arrived 12 days ago and planned to stay for a week, but changed her plans after cozying up to some like-minded radicals, including Rami Shamir, 30, a waiter at a French bistro in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.

She swears she’s not romantically involved with her new friend.

Yesterday was a typical day for the pair, who woke up at 8 a.m. on their little patch of paving stone near the communal kitchen and dashed off to Trinity Church to wash up.

Hessler emerged an hour later, her brown hair in dreadlocks, wearing a T-shirt depicting Han Solo and Princess Leia kissing, and bearing the slogan “Make Love Not War.”

She got coffee and a granola bar from the protest kitchen before sorting laundry for two hours.

The unemployed Long Island native compared her decision to abandon her family to Americans serving in the armed forces.

“Military people leave their families all the time, so why should I feel bad?” a defiant Hessler said. “I’m fighting for a better world.”

She said she had been following the movement on Facebook, and the more she learned, the more obsessed she became with joining the demonstrators.

At around 11 a.m. yesterday, Hessler moved from laundry duty to park cleanup -- a four-hour detail from which she broke just once to give a troubled protester a hug at the “empathy table.” She also found time for a meditation session later in the day.

Hessler has spoken with her family -- husband Curtiss, 42; son Peyton, 17; and daughters Kennedy 15, Sullivan, 13, and Veda, 7 -- just three times since leaving them. “Friends are taking care of them,” she said.

Not everyone has supported her decision. “My mother told me I was being very selfish,” she admitted.

And her husband, a former Bank of America financial adviser who now works at a local Florida bank, is perplexed. “He says he’s working for ‘the Man,’ and I’m fighting against him,” she said.

After finishing her morning routine and afternoon chores yesterday, Hessler spent the evening attending organizer meetings and helping fellow protesters find sleeping spots.

Hessler herself bedded down on an air mattress at 12:28 a.m., ready to do it all over again today.

911 Truther On CNBC Speaker's Corner AT #OWS

Michael Moore Donates $2.5 Million Dollars To #OccupyWallStreet
Oct. 27, 2011

Filmmaker Michael Moore to donate 2.5 million dollars to Occupy Wall Street protesters Thursday at noon

New York City, NY - The most visible supporter of the Occupy Wall Street protesters, filmmaker Michael Moore, has vowed to donate one thousand dollars cash to 2500 different people who are occupying Zuccotti Park at noon on Thursday October 29th 2011.

“These people need this money more than I do. I have plenty and have benefited tremendously from the capitalist system in this country and I am so touched by this movement that I want to do something to help it,” insists Moore.

“I’ve been very fortunate financially because of my films, and instead of waiting for the government to redistribute my wealth, I have decided I would take that into my own hands since I can do a better job,” explains Moore, adding, “It’s my money, and I can do whatever I want with it.”

Of course, as news spreads of this giveaway, many people will flock to the Occupy Wall Street location Thursday looking for their money, and to ensure that the diehard protesters and actual occupiers will be sure to receive it, Moore insists that the first people to get their envelope will be the ones who have claimed a residence in Zuccotti park.

The cash giveaway will be highly organized by a joint effort between Michael Moore’s security team and the NYPD to ensure that the crowd does not get out of hand during the event. Once someone has received their gift, they will be marked with a semi-permanent marker on their right hand in order to prevent people from getting multiple gifts. The money will arrive in a Brinks Security truck just outside Zuccotti Park where it will be met by the NYPD, Michael Moore, and his security team.

Michael Moore is one of the most successful documentary film makers in history, whose films include Roger and Me, Sicko, and Fahrenheit 9/11. He was one of the first celebrities to voice support for the Occupy Movement, and has become an unofficial spokesperson of the protesters.

Thomas C. Shope leader of Occupy Charlotte is a theif


We the people of Occupy Charlotte and the General Assembly thereof, wish it to be hereby known that Thomas C. Shope has been exiled from the Occupy Charlotte movement and is to no longer be used as a source for communication and/or donations. He has been separated from this organization due to his consistent and willful actions against the will of the people and the decisions of the General Assembly. Any and all communications to the media and any donations from the people that support us, are to be made and accepted by and from the members of the occupation at 600 E. Trade Street in Charlotte, NC.

This was a long meeting, and this issue was talked about until consensus was reached. There are many more statements to come on this issue and many others. On this one alone there are too many concerns to not try to get them to the public as soon as possible. This is merely one of many videos to come.We invite everyone to come be part of our ongoing conversation, the process, a true forum of the people, just one of many across the world. We will not be meek, we will not be silent. Our true voices will be heard and we will fight against any distortions that are created to manipulate public opinion against us. We are the 99%...and so are you.

Occupy Charlotte: Where do the donations go?

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Occupy Charlotte protestors seem to be settling into their community outside the old city hall. Supporters are even sending them mail to Trade Street.
There's also a donation booth on the grounds, a few steps away from police headquarters.
"This is a book we started several days ago," said Don Faix, one of the occupiers. He's a retiree who believes in the movement, and he says, financial disclosure.
He showed WBTV how each donation is logged, with the initials of two protestors to account for it. The day of their most recent march, more than $200 dollars came in to support the cause.
"The public will know everything about our finances. That's one of our goals," he said.
Just not right away. Another voice of the movement, Luis Rodriguez, did not want to discuss total donations amounts.
"I'm afraid I can't really say. That number is being tallied by fundraising," said Rodriguez.
He said the fundraising committee is also working on project to allow people to make online donations. It's a signal the movement wants to grow.
But there's a problem. Occupy Charlotte doesn't have a bank account. Protestors say they are in the process of starting one.
There's also conflict over the name. Occupy Charlotte is registered with the city as a sole proprietorship under their former spokesperson, Thomas Shope. The group ousted him last week amid accusations coming from both parties.
While the group works to sort out legal obligations, the donations are building.
"When we have money come in, right now it's going into a general coffer," said Rodriguez. He said the donations pay for things like megaphones and fliers. He also said they hope to buy winter clothing and winterize their tents.
It sounds like a group not going anywhere soon.
Much like the business culture they rail against, as Occupy Charlotte grows, so will its financial accountability. 
The group says it will register as a non-profit, which means those dollars must be reported. The donors would get a tax write off.
