99 Percenters Foil Cops With Amazing #OWS Bat Signal

Your Wonkette had a chance to see the #OWS Bat Signal firsthand last night at the Day of Action protests on the Brooklyn Bridge — take a minute to watch the video. But even more awesomer than the Bat Signal is how it got there, thanks to a nice single mom living in the run-down projects located directly in front of the building of the monstrous union-busting Verizon overlords.

NYC Protesters Receive Hobo Bean Care Packages

Hello! Here’s a “lost dispatch” from last night, when your Occupy Wall Street correspondent temporarily fled Zuccotti Park, mostly due to looming thunderstorms/cowardice. (The NYPD has prohibited the use of tents and all tent-like structures, hooray.) Anyway! This collection of noteworthy day-old Occupy Wall Street news will also not be heard on NPR, and not just because they’re currently obsessed with foraging for Thomas Jefferson’s favorite fruit snack.

Occupation Dispatch #5: Radiohead Unplugged & Massive Demonstrations

Greetings from Zuccotti Park, where everything is going apeshit crazy at the moment. We just returned from a march around Wall Street — the largest we’ve witnessed since Sunday. There will be an even larger rally and protest at 5:30 p.m. that will include members of the New York Transit Workers Union, which voted to support the Occupation at a meeting earlier this week. The park dwellers have raised more than $25,000 since September 17, and have received at least 150 packages since Wednesday. We watched some protesters as they gleefully opened their mail this morning — it was like Hanukkah Rosh Hashanah! Video and the latest Radiohead gossip-scoops after the jump!

Wonkette Interviews the Peaceful Park Dweller Hippie Fiends!

The Park Dwellers: In Their Own Words! Watch this brave anonymous high school teacher (“I hope my principal doesn’t see this”) talk about what’s happening in New York that the National Media (all based in New York) refuses to cover because it’s not Teabaggy enough: “A courageous effort … it opens up a dialog that needs to happen.” Too hopeful for TeeVee! We got a lot of other good stuff on the FlipCam, including famous professor Cornel West! — Read more on Wonkette Interviews the Peaceful Park Dweller Hippie Fiends!…

NYC Protesting and Palling Around With Anti-Terror Militarized Police

Good morning! Your dutiful Occupy Wall Street correspondent is still embedded with the Sandinistas of Zuccotti Park, who still want to destroy America with their nonviolent opposition to living in a terrible banana republic. We even accompanied the park dwellers on their daily morning march around Wall Street, which was filmed in its entirety by shadowy NYPD types armed with camcorders, probably so that they can tag us all on Facebook/add our names to the No Fly List/Assassination Queue. Famous non-white scholar Cornel West made a surprise visit, and we also accosted high school teachers and preachers, all of whom admitted on camera that they need to get a job.

Michael Moore and the Granny Peace Squad Occupy Wall Street

Hello friends! Your Occupy Wall Street correspondent spent the day familiarizing himself with the park-dwelling lifestyle (pro tip: poop at McDonald’s, not in your pants) and meeting the treacherous peaceniks that he will be spending an entire week with. Did you know that these “disorganized, godless pixies” are actually extremely intelligent and highly organized, and that they have a kitchen that serves three meals a day and a medical station that offers free medical assistance and a library with free book-learnin’? (A place where you can borrow books for reading, but no Netflix overnight shipping depot? Ha ha, just another example of “pantomime progressivism”!) Anyway, nobody got arrested today (as of 8:30pm), but there were lots of hot celebrities such as Michael Moore. And the Granny Peace Squad came and helped ruin America with us. You probably already know about the Granny Peace Squad, but are you familiar with Michael Moore? He is an old woman who wears a trashbag and talks smack about the 5-0. Videos after the jump!
