Keeping up with the Occupy Wall Street 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: Anja Niedringhaus, AP)

Day 131

  • Demonstrators flew 99% luftballons over Davos, Switzerland to protest the world domination planning that’s currently going on there.
  • Here is Occupy DC’s response to the president’s State of the Union address, that definitely contained some OWS rhetoric.
  • Occupiers had good reasons for taking over a vacant hotel, none of which the San Francisco Chronicle reported on.
  • Occupy Wall Street’s favorite ex-cop, Captain Ray Lewis, copped a plea and if he doesn’t get arrested for anything protest-y in the next six months, disorderly conduct charges will be dropped.
  • The NYPD has once again removed some of the barricades surrounding the Wall Street Bull, an illegal piece of street art that has been fully accepted as legit, and which they argue needs to be protected from protesters indefinitely. Unlike last time, it’s doesn’t appear to be for just a one hour photo-op either.
  • Now that the OWS bus has left New York City for a nationwide tour and is tweeting.
