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:

Similar to the school bells that most of us heard during our school days, the New York Stock Exchange's (NYSE) opening and closing bells mark the beginning and the end of each trading day. More specifically, the opening bell is rung at 9:30am EST to mark the start of the day's trading session. At 4pm the closing bell is rung and trading for the day stops. There are bells located in each of the four main sections of the NYSE that all ring at the same time once a button is pressed.

Crowd’s pretty shrimpy. Note to lefties: You wanted sheeple, you got sheeple. You’ll have to keep paying them to protest.

The people at your live link are funny. Just screaming at the cops and the cops just stand there and nod and stand, look at each other, nod and stand.

Yes, but but.. if we make them wait a whole year, that would hurt their “self esteem” and that’s not nice. /s

Guy on ustream says that crowd was bigger an hour ago with more push back. Not so much right now.

Business guy said, “You guys are just here to be here.” Funny. “What are you guys fighting. Others fought for women’s rights or blacks rights, what are you fighting for?”

9:30am no delay in opening bell.

So now what? of course Wall Street is business as usual and this "movement" has accomplished nothing.

I am predicting this thing is going to devolve in to chaos and violence in about an hour.

global rev was interviewing a ‘family’ - parents and two little kids. Asked what the sign said. One side says, “Please don’t mace our kids”, when asked what other side says the father didn’t want to show it but quickly flipped it over, all I could read was “Wall St. sh*ts”.... they did not want to show the dirty side to the camera. Such upstanding parental roll models.

That’s what drove the Manson ‘Family’ as well. There is a lot of rhetoric coming from the OWS-ers that are eerily familiar. Especially the use of the word ‘pigs’.

so what did the banking industry do that was illegal, newbie? and why wasn’t anyone prosecuted?

Well, I am not a newbie and I will agree that the mutual corruption among some businesses, some politicians and some banks has got to end. For the record, we are not living in a capitalistic society. Things right now are much closer to a fascistic society with all of the government regulation that currently exists.

For the question of why wasn't anyone prosecuted? Look who is in charge of the Federal Justice Dept.

“Remove the sign you just put up or we will remove it.”

Not sure what this means, but chanting “Bloomberg’s offense”

Estimating 250-350 here.

"So now what?"

If their stated goal was to prevent the NYSE from opening, it doesn't look like they were awfully successful.

It also looks like it's going to be raining in another hour in NYC. Let's see how cold and wet they're willing to be for "The Revolution".

True. I had no idea it rang on time/as scheduled.

In your opinion, what would the gov’t and banking industry do to “straighten up”??? Everyone recognizes there are HUGE problems, BUT the major difference is that there are two world-views when it comes to what needs to be done to “fix” it...
The folks at Wall St. today (OWS’ers) believe in a socialist/communistic approach to the problems - FORCING the government to re-distribute wealth to the “less fortunate”, and to nationalize all markets and commerce to be controlled by the Federal Government as a central authority.
