The Federal Reserve Bank o

,hundreds o protesters areoccupying Dewey Square,in plain sight o the FederalReserve Bank o Boston anda towering Bank o Americaheadquarters. Their GeneralAssembly — in the besttradition o thinking globally,acting locally — has orgedrelationships with youthorganizations working toreduce violence, developjobs, and promote environ-mental justice in the city.In the birthplace an earlier revolution, a newone has sprung. On Thursday in
,thousands assembled at Dilworth Plaza acrossrom City Hall. The city oered a permit or theoccupation “in perpetuity”; their General Assemblywas split on the decision.For one week in

This is just a small slice of the occupations sweeping across the country. Hundreds of planning meetings have been scheduled — from Birmingham to Kalamazoo to Frankfurt to Cape Town toSão Paulo, on every continent except Antarctica.From New York to everywhere: we’re with you,you’re with us.
—reports from intrepid, heartfelt, truly patriotic occupiers everywhere
get ready.
No list o demands
We are speaking to each other, and listening.
This occupation is frst about participation.
Tens o thousands o New Yorkers streamed into Foley Square on Wednesday—laborunions rolled out, students walked out. The occupation o Wall Street grew to resemblethe city we live in. What race, age, religion, occupation did we represent? None o them. All o them.Barricaded in by steel pens, surrounded by a thousand cops and NYPD helicoptersabove, we saw our power refected in their need to control us. But just as this is ourmovement, it is our narrative too.The exhausted political machines and their PR slicks are already seeking leadersto elevate, messages to claim, talking points to move on. They, more than anyone, willattempt to seize and shape this moment. They are racing to reach the ront o the line.But how can they run out in ront o something that is in ront o them? They cannot.For Wall Street and Washington, the demand is not on them to give us something thatisn’t theirs to give. It’s ours. It’s on us. We aren’t going anywhere. We just got here.
