    there is something "being planned" for tonight.  

    i can't believe the livestream crew is just listening to whomever about something like this

    there is some conversation that the arrests earlier were facilitated by the "someone" who proposed they march to the UN

      They should of all headed back to the Liberty Plaza to hold it. There was unfortunately some conflict among the group in making that decision showing some fray in the cohesion of the effort.

      It could be the only purpose of your life is to serve as a warning to others.

        whether the march was a good idea or not. Probably a good idea if it got real media attention and started to get other people to take notice of it. But in that it demoralized a lot of people and got a lot of people arrested (which may or may not help the momentum) makes it seem somewhat problematic because it seems like the main idea is to occupy Wall St., which means at least holding Zuccotti Park/Liberty Park and then really getting enough people down there to stop business as usual. You get 10,000 people down there and the powers that be will have to sit up and take notice because it will take a serious effort and lots of bad feeling to move those people out of the way so the limousines can drive through.

        The march today was a big gamble. I hope it pays off.
