Audition Reminder ! Macbeth Co-directed by Michael McClellan and CJ Nolan. Something wicked this way comes. Stock manipulation, corporate takeovers, money laundering, fraud – what better place to set a story of greed and the lust for power than on Wall Street? Where ethics and morality give way to profits and capital. Where “human costs” never outweigh financial gain. Where cell phones and iPads are the weapons of choice – this is where the world of MACBETH thrives. No longer content to wait for his rise through the ranks, Macbeth and his ambitious wife seize his moment to claim new properties, new titles and – ultimately – full control of the financial kingdom. His actions will leave the ruined lives of many in his wake. But will the fight to stay on top be his undoing? Goaded by the mysterious witches found in nearby Zuccotti Park, Shakespeare’s tragic character will see his future rise and fall on the fatal flaw lodged in everyone Audition Dates: All Roles Are Available Saturday, May 17th ...

An Occupy Wall Street activist has been found guilty of assaulting a New York City police officer in a trial that critics say should have been about the police assaulting her.

Occupy Wall Street: A Frenzy That Fizzled By Andrew Ross Sorkin* Occupy Wall Street protesters gathered on Monday, August 2011, near Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan. It will be an asterisk in the history books, if it gets a mention at all. A year ago this week, the Occupy Wall Street movement got under way in Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan. The loose group of protesters, frustrated by the economic downturn, sought to blame Wall Street and Corporate America for many of the nation’s ills. While the movement’s first days did not receive much news coverage, it soon turned into a media frenzy, with some columnists comparing its importance to that of the Arab Spring, which led to the overthrow of leaders in several Middle Eastern and African countries, spurred by social media. Images of the Wall Street protesters getting arrested were looped on news channels and featured on the covers of newspapers. Big banks — and the famous Charging Bull statue that is an icon of Wall Street — were fortified with b ...

Confusion is what we see in the whole world today. Ask the question: why did the people in Egypt want to get rid of their king in 2011? Were they even Egyptians uprising? Who were the organizers and who is leading them today? What started the big rage in Libya? The answer, they say, is that they wanted democracy. Did the Libyans say that or did it come from other sources? Did all Libyans want to kill their king or just a few of them? Why did they hate their king? Why did they brutalize his body, even after his death, if democracy is all they were seeking? If democracy was all they were seeking, what then are they seeking in New York, California, Texas, Illinois, and other states throughout the United States, that already have democracy; as well as other countries.

"There was the beautiful solidarity and unity I felt in Zuccotti Park, but also the righteous anger and intensity fueled by police violence that was evident in Tahrir Square," said Justin Wedes, who attended the Istanbul protests.
Birkbeck Institute for the Moving Image presents Zoe Beloff’s The Days of the Commune A street production of the play by Bertolt Brecht In the spring of 2012, Zoe Beloff brought together a group of actors, activists and enthusiasts to perform The Days of the Commune (1949) in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street. The group performed the work, scene by scene, in public spaces around New York City, starting in Zuccotti Park. Bringing the Paris Com-mune movement into dialogue with Brecht’s radical restaging, Beloff asks us to imagine new possibilities for changing the world in the face of seemingly impos-sible odds. There will be a panel discussion with Zoe Beloff after the screening.

Activists stand in solidarity -- from NYC to Istanbul -- to defend our right to our cities. Indyreader contributor, Joshua Stephens, reports on this past weekend's "Occupy Gezi" action in NYC. "If Saturday was any indication, New Yorkers got it. They took to Zuccotti Park, the legendary staging ground of the Occupy movement, in numbers that swelled to four or five thousand at points; numbers unseen since perhaps the days just after the NYPD’s violent early morning eviction of the square’s encampment in November of 2011. “Without public space, you can’t have democracy,” said Ben Shepard when I spoke with him at Saturday’s demonstration, a veteran of Occupy Wall Street and Time’s Up. “When I talk to people in this crowd, they say ‘we want our own space to determine what our city can look like’. It’s about self-determination, from Istanbul to New York.”"

Le Monde Diplo Occupy Wall Street and its evil twin, the Tea Party. Yes, but what are you for? by Thomas Frank Reading all the accounts of Occupy Wall Street's theorising in Zuccotti Park can send you to sleep: all academic prose and no real world action or demands. They also make explicit Occupy's resemblance to its enemy, the Tea Party. There is a scene I always recall when I try to remember the exhilarating effect that Occupy Wall Street (OWS) had on me when it was first getting going. I was on a subway train in Washington, DC, reading an article about the protests in Zuccotti Park in Manhattan. It was three years after the Wall Street bailouts. It was two years after everyone I knew had given up hope in the creativity of Barack Obama. It was two months after the bankers' friends in the Republican Party had pushed the country right to the brink of default in order to underscore their hallucinatory economic theories. Like everyone else, I had had enough. Anyhow, the subway car was boarded by some perfec ...
December 22, 2012 "The PCJF has obtained heavily redacted documents showing that FBI offices and agents around the country were in high gear conducting surveillance against the movement even as early as August 2011, a month prior to the establishment of the OWS encampment in Zuccotti Park and other Occupy actions around the country. “This production, which we believe is just the tip of the iceberg, is a window into the nationwide scope of the FBI’s surveillance, monitoring, and reporting on peaceful protestors organizing with the Occupy movement,” stated Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, Executive Director of the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF). “These documents show that the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are treating protests against the corporate and banking structure of America as potential criminal and terrorist activity. These documents also show these federal agencies functioning as a de facto intelligence arm of Wall Street and Corporate America.”"
New York (AP) — You might be surprised at what has become a lauded and effective relief organization for victims of Superstorm Sandy: Occupy Wall Street. The social media savvy that helped Occupy protesters create a grass-roots global movement last year — one that ultimately collapsed under its leaderless format — is proving a strength as members fan out across New York to deliver aid including hot meals, medicine and blankets. They're the ones who took food and water to Glenn Nisall, a 53-year-old resident of Queens' hard-hit and isolated Rockaway section who lost power and lives alone, with no family nearby. "I said: 'Occupy? You mean Occupy Wall Street?'" he said. "I said: 'Awesome, man. I'm one of the 99 percent, you know?'" Occupy Wall Street was born in late 2011 in a Lower Manhattan plaza called Zuccotti Park, with a handful of protesters pitching tents and vowing to stay put until world leaders offered a fair share to the "99 percent" who don't control the globe's wealth. The world heard the ...
I was able to make it in to work tonight, no problem. The bus driver tore through Upper Manhattan like a bat out of *** getting me to an emptied out downtown lickety split. Zuccotti Park, home of Occupy Wall Street, has been decked out with Christmas lights overnight and was deserted, all dressed up with no place to go. The winds began howling as I got off the bus. Sandy is making her presence known. Thinking I might be at work for the duration, I stopped off at the excellent Duane Reade at Wall Street to get a few food staples in case I am stranded at work for the duration. The store was in pandemonium as folks stocked up. Only Halloween candy remained on the shelves. It really feels strange when New York City Transit shuts down, like the aftermath of World War III. When that old reliable work horse the subway stops running you can't help but to have a bit of a panic attack. My company, thankfully, is housed in Chase Manhattan Plaza, a city unto itself with its own security, generators, cafeteria and - ...

Happy Anniversary Occupy Wall Street! It was one year ago today that Occupy Wall Street occupied Zuccotti Park! It's also Constitution Day and Citizenship Day!
September 15th - BREAKING NEWS - Police have already started making random arrests of peaceful protesters in New York today, with no reason yet being given for their actions. "On the first of three days planned to mark the one-year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street about 250 people marched down Broadway from Washington Square toward Zuccotti Park. The crowd was accompanied by a large number of police officers on foot in marked and unmarked cars and riding scooters. At two different points along the way, police officers plunged into the crowd and made arrests. The circumstances surrounding the arrests were not immediately clear but by 7:30 p.m. it appeared that at least eight people had been taken into custody. The first incident took place around 6:30 p.m. on Broadway near West 4th Street. Witnesses said that marchers were on the sidewalk on the west side of Broadway when officers grabbed one young man who may have been wearing a bandanna mask and pushed him against the wall. A video of the event showed m ...
On September 17, 2011, a small group of activists rolled out their sleeping bags in Zuccotti Park, a small patch of concrete in the middle of Manhattan's Financial District. Monday marks the first anniversary of Occupy Wall Street's beginning; since that day one year ago, ot …

"Americans grasped that the Occupy Wall Street protesters were speaking to their values, which was why, while the numbers protesting may have been relatively small, two-thirds of Americans said that they supported the protesters. If there was any doubt of this support, the ability of the protesters to gather 300,000 signatures to keep their protests alive, almost overnight, when Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York first suggested that he would shut down the camp at Zuccotti Park, near Wall Street, showed otherwise. And support came not just among the poor and the disaffected. While the police may have been excessively rough with protesters in Oakland - and the thirty thousand who joined the protests the day after the downtown encampment was violently disbanded seemed to think so - it was noteworthy that some of the police themselves expressed support for the protesters." Joseph Stiglitz

and her sister, Linda, met up with two of their friends (Iris and Sharon) at the South Street Seaport for an early Memorial Day Celebration. It was a really great day, and we ended it with a visit to my old Occupy Wall Street buddy (see photo). He is holding down the fort at Zuccotti Park (and still sticking it to the Wall Street fat cats), while the rest of his group has moved uptown to Union Square and Bryant Park.

Tomgram: Noam Chomsky, A Rebellious World or a New Dark Age? Posted by Noam Chomsky at 7:39am, May 8, 2012. If you had followed May Day protests in New York City in the mainstream media, you might hardly have noticed that they happened at all. The stories were generally tucked away, minimalist, focused on a few arrests, and spoke of “hundreds” of protesters in the streets, or maybe, if a reporter was feeling especially generous, a vague “thousands.” I did my own rough count on the largest of the Occupy protests that day. It left Union Square in the evening heading for the Wall Street area. I walked through the march front to back, figuring a couple of thousand loosely packed protesters to a block, and came up with a conservative estimate of 15,000 people. Maybe it wasn’t the biggest protest of all time, but sizeable enough given that Occupy, an organization without strong structures but once strongly located, had been (quite literally) pushed or even beaten out of its camps in Zuccotti Park and ...

As an ex-New Yorker, I'm very familiar with the beehive of activity that is, or I should way, was Wall Street. I'm staying on Wall Street now for the next few days, and got a look at the 'crowd' at Zuccotti Park. You'll be happy to know that your tax dollars are being spent keeping a few dozen unkempt, lazy and unwashed misanthropes from being pummeled by the working stiffs that walk by them every day. They hurl insults. Tell us our lives are meaningless, which is hilarious seeing how they're living in tents and stealing food from the local merchants, and generally add nothing to the debate. However, they have police protection 24/7. And if they're goal was to ruin the Financial District, they've done a good job. It's a ghost town down there. Wall Street, upon which New York City is completely dependent for tax revenue, is now just another place to work. It is no longer able to support a vital workforce, or economic engine. In the end, all the OWS crowd has done is cripple the revenue base for s ...
