I’d been meaning to write a post on this myself, but I couldn’t figure out the words. Fortunately a friend has figured out those words already, so all I have to do is link to her post. She also gives some ideas for people who can’t go to these things. (Like me. If I can barely get out of bed, I can’t exactly go to a protest — which is pretty infuriating right now. But I can send these links about it so other people hear.)
Here’s her post:
Some other links on this issue that people have sent me:

I’ve seen other videos but I can’t find them anymore.
Apparently the best places to follow all this are on Twitter (#occupywallst, #occupytogether, #globalrevolution, and others) and on that Livestream video. One video I saw (can’t find it now) said that — at the time the video was made — CNN was covering a small Tea Party meeting in a Denny’s but wasn’t covering any of this at all. And many media reports that do exist have false or misleading information.
