Updates-- 11/1/2011

Hi guys. I'm definitely not feeling well today, but I'm finding what I can. Here we go:

-- Occupy Boston organized a walkout and march for students. Dressed as zombies, they met up at 1pm in the Boston Commons and marched to the Occupy site together.

-- Occupy Nashville was granted a temporary restraining order against the unjust legislation passed by Governor Haslam. The judge has already decided to grant it by the time they got there, regardless of what the defense said.

-- Occupy Oakland has released video that is pretty irrefutable. Look here to see that police really are infiltrating OWS camps. http://markcrispinmiller.com/2011/10/proof-that-oakland-pd-infiltrated-ows/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+NewsFromUnderground+(News+From+Underground) We need to be careful of this, because while some may genuinely want to work with us, others are likely Agent Provocateurs.

-- Over 300,000 people signed the petition about Bank of America's new debit card fee, causing the giant to reconsider its method. Other banks have announced they will be removing the fee immediately.

-- Many London Occupiers were arrested for demonstrating outside Parliament yesterday. Their continuing protests outside of St. Paul's cathedral has led to the resignation of 3 officials.

-- Occupy Richmond will be meeting today to decide what to do next, since police literally bulldozed their camps this past weekend.

-- Occupy Portland was raided last night at 4am. News articles on the story are talking about protesters "antagonizing" police, by yelling and screaming at them. Around ten people were arrested.

-- An Occupy Oklahoma City protester was found dead in his tent yesterday. Police say it appears he passed away from natural causes. My heart goes out to him and his family.

-- Two Occupiers have been ticketed in Rochester for violating city ordinances , three days after a major raid arrested 32 for staying in a park after closing time.

-- Occupy Africa, which began in South Africa, is now spreading throughout the continent.

That's all for right now, everyone.
