<nettime-ann> First the Arab Spring, then an American Fall


.
Nearly 20 "occupy" protests across the US were planned today through
various online social networks.
A good accounting of them is here: http://occupytogether.org/

"Welcome to OCCUPY TOGETHER, a hub for all of the events springing up
across the country in solidarity with Occupy Wall St. As we have
followed the news on facebook, twitter, and the various live feeds
across the internet, we felt compelled to build a site that would help
spread the word as more protests organize across the country. We hope
to provide people with information about events that are organizing,
ongoing, and building across the U.S. as we, the 99%, take action
against the greed and corruption of the 1%."  September 23rd, 2011

Seems like NYTimes wont be able to bury their condescending
OccupyWallStreet "coverage" in the NY Regional section any more.

Especially when stock traders declare on BBC news (as one did today)
that Goldman Sacks runs the world and everyone in the financial
industry knows that the markets are going to crash in less than a
year:
