    Well, did they occupy Wall Street on September 17th? I don't remember hearing about a revolution in America on that day. It must have been while I was listening to Pick of the Pops.

    doesnt look like it - slow burn at best to hope for - not a critical mass yet, but theyre still out there it seems

    Slow burn is good, accretion of varied and disparate elements, building towards something massive.

    I'll be donating my copy of Laclau's 'On Populist Reason'!

    Is anyone else getting an annoying blocking Security Warning on the main Occupy Wall St page? https://occupywallst.org/ or is it just me?

    Just got an email from a friend visiting NY for the first time who is going through culture shock at the wealth disparity there, saying it feels like a caste system. I was surprised to read the other day that the bronx is the poorest urban area in the States - thats up against some tough competition

    Shall I change the title of this thread, seeing as how (a) "anonymous" has little or nothing to do with it (b) it might confuse people looking for Occupy Wall Street threads by making them think this is about some connection with anonymous and (c) it makes my teeth grind every time I see it and so probably does for others as well?
