Occupy Wall Street National Day of Action: Live Updates From Downtown Manhattan
Village Voice ^ | 11/17/11 | Steven Thrasher

Posted on 11/17/2011 3:07:10 AM PST by M. Thatcher

Today is November 17, the two month anniversary since Occupy Wall Street began. Protestors have declared today to be an International Day of Action, calling for people to "occupy their block," to "shut down Wall Street" starting at 7:00 AM, and to "occupy the subway" starting at 3:00 PM. We have been hearing that protestors, and the NYPD, will be amassing all over the city today, and will be live blogging dispatches from our own Village Voice staff writers Rosie Gray (@_rosiegray) and Nick Pinto (@macfathom), as well as photographer C.S. Muncy (@CSMuncyPhoto), who are on the scene through out lower Manhattan.

5:15 AM: From the anchor desk here in downtown Brooklyn, we hear a helicopter that sounds like it is heading towards Manhattan. Nick sends two pictures: this one appears to be on an NYPD roll call, just north of the Wall Street bull:

I'm waiting to see if they disrupt the Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Wouldn't that be great for their cause.

If these troublemakers dirsupt the “Thanksgiving Day Macy’s Parade” the angry backlash from Americans will be BIG.

Thanks for the Twitter feed.

Also got to remember that the Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC is on tv that day. Plus security WILL BE HIGH, so this nonsense will not be tolerated by the OWS protesters.

BWAHAHAHA

Mostly media, police right now in Zuccotti Park. We need more numbers. Get down here. #OWS #N17

Cedar Street at Zuccotti is nothing but TV trucks. #OWS #N17

No, this “big” protest is today. So far, it’s underwhelming, but this bunch doesn’t adhere to the early-to-rise philosophy.

Hopefully this will end the protests once and for all today, sending the protesters HOME.

NYPD could have just paid the cab drivers to take the po'testors to Jersey instead. And how is it these fools can afford a cab? On your nickel, no doubt...

It's a quiet cab as we near #Zuccotti.

This is the results of letting this BS do on so long and letting the criminals think they can get away with anything they want. The dimwits had better wake up soon and get this sh** under control or they will never win another election for the next 20 years.

But the Thanksgiving Day Parade is on NBC, so they’ll only cover the fleabaggers in a good light. Must be tolerant and open-minded, you know.

I couldn’t get past the beginning. An anniversary occurs once a year.

Saw a number of “occupier” types, a few with signs and banners, on the subway downtown this morning.

These last few months of seeing these protests brought memories of my childhood to mine and another time of protests. Plus also a time for a new silent majority come next November.

I have heard OWS idiots saying they wanted to “relive the 60s;” in the 1960s, I used to hear the other kids (many of whom were red diaper babies, since I grew up on the Upper West Side) saying they wanted to “relive the 30s.” The left regarded those periods as their glory days.

How could they resist it. Imperialist occupier white Christians have a big meal with some indigenous non-white Native Americans, and then rob them blind. If they won’t protest this, they’ve like, sold out, man. Pass the reefer to my five-year-old, man.

Look for the NYPD to bring in the much tougher SWAT teams. Remember SWAT teams are police who are trained in the military-style police response.

No, it won't. If Americans haven't backlashed by now over the utterly satanic behavior of these nihilistic animals, they never will.

I'm continuously stunned by what my country has become.

Occupy Wall Street Plans to Retake NY

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/149853#.TsT97j24pdQ

If they actually try to do what the guy with the sign says, they’re going to be spread a bit thin. But let ‘em try. They think the whole world is with them. Occupy everything, guys.

The mayor of New York is a metrosexual pansy. He’ll roll over for the protesters and jail the police if he has to to appease the animals.

Don’t think that’ll be necessary. They’re occupying everything, so that means from Bronx to Coney Island there’ll be lone nuts to get cuffed and brought down to One Police Plaza. Ought to be a zoo over there, though.

You know, it used to be a serious crime to incite mob violence like this, in anyone's reasoning.

Now it's "free speech."

Have you ever heard of the new silent majority? They are biding their time. I see USA history repeating itself, for that I am confident.

It won't take but a few of the most radical to do something crazy enough to paralyze the city.

Heard on the Rush Limbaugh Show yesterday that the Dem mayors, and frankly Mayor Bloomberg is a Dem Mayor have been told by higher ups that the American people have simply have gotten FED-UP and said these OWS protests ARE TO END.

from live stream: police blocking march path, tells them they do not have a permit for parade.

They have pushed the police back...they are breaking through. This is not good.
