Occupy Wall Street -- The news network



The Epicenter of the Occupy movement, Zuccotti Park, continues to grow even a month after its birth. Occupy Wall Street has been broadcasted via the internet on GlobalRevolution.TV. This is in reaction to the lack of news coverage on TV. Many other demonstrations are joining in on the online broadcast. Could this replace the mainstream media?

Author and activist Naomi Wolf has been added to the list now hundreds of names long of protesters arrested during the ongoing Occupy Wall Street demonstrations. A group of around 50 participants in the movement, including Wolf, had been in attendance outside of a gala that was honoring New York Governor Andrew Cuomo at New York's Skylight Studios. While Gov. Cuomo was being lauded as "Game Changer of the Year" at the awards ceremony, Occupy Wall Street protesters were expressing their detest over the politician's opposition to extending a tax on millionaires and his support of hydraulic fracking.

Cenk Uygur at OWS: 'Obama is the establishment'


The Young Turks' Cenk Uygur stopped in Lower Manhattan on Monday to report from the ongoing Occupy Wall Street protests on what was officially it's one-month anniversary. Uygur tells RT that even though the mainstream media and most of America have acknowledged the demonstrations, President Barack Obama has yet to. With protesters angry at how the establishment is treating 99 percent of America, Uygur says it is no surprise that Obama isn't representing the bulk of the country. After all, he says, Obama is the establishment.

NYPD probed over assault on OWS protesters

NYPD probed over assault on OWS protesters


New York police officers may be given a sharp rap over the knuckles for allegedly heavy-handed tactics against 'Occupy Wall Street' protesters. And it's this video, taped last Friday, that gave ground for one of the inquiries. The officer, thought to be a deputy inspector, was filmed grabbing an activist from behind, punching him in the face, and knocking him to the ground. An independent agency that deals with complaints against New York's police says it's also looking into an officer using pepper spray on peaceful female protesters. The campaign against big business and banking in the U.S. has entered its fifth week. And as RT's Lucy Kafanov reports, the movement is becoming more and more popular.
