Mayor Bloomberg’s office is ordering this action. Do you guys believe the “they’ll be able to return” bit? Seems like it’s awful abrupt for it to be that.

Occupy Oakland will be forced to close after shooting: According to a press release released by the City of Oakland, above, the Occupy encampment will soon close, and those who do not follow the order will be arrested. “Last night’s tragic incident on the Plaza has elevated concerns about the safety of the encampment and people who also use the space,” the press release says. The risks are too great and it is time for the encampment to end.” The shooting did not involve a member of the encampment, but happened nearby. This week has been tough for the movement — there have been many deaths related to the Occupy movements, and many encampments, including the one in Portland, are being forced the close.

'Occupy All Streets' is our way of reminding people that there is change to be made everywhere, not just on Wall Street. At this time we have not made an official commitment to monetarily support the movement.
A spokesperson for Rocawear • Discussing the Jay-Z-backed company’s plan to sell the “Occupy Wall Street”-aping shirts the rapper has recently started wearing … without a plan plan to offer any sort of monetary support to the movement for riffing on their slogan. The irony is painful.

Occupy Salt Lake City occupant found dead in tent: A day after a particularly violent turn of events in two separate Occupy cities (Oakland and Burlington, Vt.), the Occupy movement suffered another setback after the death of an Occupant in Salt Lake City led to authorities shutting down the camp entirely. The occupant reportedly died from a combination of a drug overdose and carbon monoxide poisoning caused by a portable heater. City officials say they can no longer allow for the camp to continue due to safety reasons. (Photo by KSL reporter Shara Park)

OWS members start trek to Washington DC

  • 240 mile march by Occupy Wall Street, from NYC to DC source

» Hitting the road: A group of OWS protesters have embarked on this lengthy walk, expecting to arrive in Washington DC on November 23rd, the congressional committee deadline on whether to keep the Bush-era tax cuts extensions President Obama agreed to last year. The Occupy movement, obviously, would like to see these cuts expire; while this would raise the tax burden of middle-income Americans to a remote extent, it would also cause a very large influx of revenue from the class most buoyed by the Bush tax policy — that vaunted 1%. The march consists of a mere dozen or so protesters right now, but they expect (we suspect rightly) to gain large numbers as they work their way towards the capitol.

Annie Leonard Takes On The Occupy Movement With “Story Of Broke”

This doesn’t really take on the Occupy Movement like Fast Company says, but it certainly does a great job of of explaining tax issues in a way that’s easy to understand.
