protest movement is a daunting task for news outlets big and small, so from here on in, we’ll be doing a daily roundup of the latest goings-on. (Photo: ANIMALNewYork)
- The General Assembly agreed on and published a “Statement of Autonomy.” Just in case it wasn’t clear, they want everyone to know that OWS “is not and never has been affiliated with any established political party, candidate or organization. Their “only affiliation is with the people.”
- Read Andrew Katz’s fascinating piece on Occupy Wall Street’s “super-secret lair.” It’s where their media team operates out of and “when journalists are granted access, they are blindfolded with a maroon scarf and told the precise location is off the record.”
- For those still unclear about how bad of a problem income equality is in this country, here’s a visual that may help drive the point home a little further (via @OccupyMyCat).
- It sucks that the New York Post always has to package their stories in such a cunty fashion, but here’s one way stragglers in Zuccotti Park are raising money.
- Lots of people are unhappy about Jay-Z’s “Occupy All Streets” t-shirt (now on sale for $22) and the fact that Rocawear hasn’t even reached out to OWS about sharing profits.
- According to Brokelyn, Sixpoint Brewing Company is re-releasing its “Hop Obama” beer as “Occupation Ale.” But the brewer fired back via Twitter and said there “are some factual errors” in the piece. Brokelyn responded via Twitter and said they will be updating shortly. Beer drama!
