New Year’s Eve with OWS: Please watch NYC protesters and/or keep them in your thoughts

Update New Year’s Eve at 11:47pm EST:
If you can get to Zuccotti Park/Liberty Square, please go now!
There are about two thousand protesters. The police are steering them and using barricades. But, the occupiers are getting brave and overturning barricades. They may have a big win. Please support by watching on-line or going in person!

Occupy Wall Street folks have decided to gather in New York City this evening. They have spent some time at Zuccotti Park. Though, they are also wandering around the city doing actions such as yelling support messages to folks in jail (through the People’s Mic — Mic Check!)

One place to keep up with Occupy Wall Street is this website: www.occupywallst.org I found good updates there tonight. Though, a Live Stream they linked to before has since gone off-line.

As of 9:57pm: LIVE NOW from NYC occupiers: here.

As of 9:57pm in and out: Streaming LIVE NOW from NYC is the following Live Stream: OccupyWallStNYC Please watch your fellow 99%ers. The police are following them around, so holding vigil with them on-line would be very helpful.

Chant from this evening: “We are unstoppable: Another world is possible!”

At the readmore are updates from tonight, New Year’s Eve 2011/2012, that I found at occupwallst.org:

Protesters are now marching around Liberty Park and chanting “All Day, All Week, Occupy Wall Street!”
What about Occupy Long Island?

I do not believe that Occupy Long Island, or the local occupies on Long Island, had big plans for New Year’s Eve. Though, I did see someone suggesting going in small groups to NYC Times Square and bringing signs to the New Year’s Eve Ball Drop festivities. So, maybe you will see pockets of occupiers among the revelers at Times Square? Look carefully…is that a 2012 hat? Or, is it a 99% hat? The photo below of 99% hats are from a few weeks ago at Occupy Broadway!


Folks in 99% Hats


Q: Will Occupy Wall Street be at the New Year’s Eve Ball Drop?

A: I have not heard any plans like that. It seems that instead, they will gather at Zuccotti Park/Liberty Square on New Year’s Eve, and wander the nearby streets in jail solidarity actions.

Q: What are Occupy Wall Street folks in NYC doing for New Year’s.

A: See above. Also, check out the following websites for updates and calendars: www.occupywallst.org or www.nycga.net
