First person perpsective in this outside blog was recommended to us by Stolen Water. This is a very important addition as it is written by a woman of color. Most first person accounts I have read so far have been by white men.

Blog by RiaD includes Unions/Organizations/Individuals standing in Solidarity plus other OWS tidbits.

Coup Media Group has a conversation going about demands. They are also taking votes - pro and con- on several demand issues. Their deadline for voting is Oct 20.

Monday, October 3, 2011
Saturday and Sunday, October 1-2

1:04 PM PT: Headed out to the gym. Will be gone for a few hours because they have turned off the water in my apartment... makes it hard to cook dinner for hungry boys.

As usual, if any OWS Blogeditors are around, please feel free to make any appropriate updates. Just leave a comment for me so I know what was done. thanks!

6:03 PM PT: The evening escaped me. Just got back and it is bed time so I will be updating this diary tomorrow early morning. To those who popped in late, I hope what is here is what you were looking for :) If not, leave me a note so that we can try and correct that in the next version.

Fri Oct 07, 2011 at 5:15 AM PT: Finally, all of yesterday's diaries are here and accounted for. Hope this helps in the future! I really do think we are making history here and it is important to document everything.

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
