Update 9/17 - Here's a Livestream from Timcast for those who want to view today's marches & monitor the anticipated responses from NYPD.


9/16 - Ahead of tomorrow's highly anticipated marches set for the one-year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street, thousands of activists have retaken Zuccotti Park.

                   The scene tonight from Zuccotti, care of katz.

The crowds occupying Zuccotti Park are an eclectic mix. Some of those who have retaken the park streamed in on buses from all across the country.

There is also a large contingency of activist Jews (many of whom have been inspired by Occupy Judaism) who are holding Rosh Hashanah services in Zuccotti to celebrate the Jewish New Year. Here is the sermon that was delivered.

The festivities tonight come on the heels of scores of indiscriminate and brutal arrests by the NYPD last night as hundreds of activists gathered to usher in the one-year anniversary.

As people continue to stream into Zuccotti Park, and as the supplicated Hebrew chants for a year of renewal echo off Zuccotti's concrete, one thing is clear: all eyes should be on New York City tomorrow morning, for Occupy Wall Street will once again lift up its head and roar a mighty roar.

For yes, we are (still) the 99 percent.

Author's Note:

Shana Tova – שנה טובה ומתוקה – Happy New Year, everyone. Since I don't do the Hallmark card thing, here's my version of a new year's greeting:

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.
