    My clock says it’s 10:39 PM Oct 31. Comments are saying it’s November 1. I guess that’s the thin line of Samhain? Or is there a glitch in your timestamping?

    Anyway, great job and kudos to all of you!!!

    Don’t shoot me I’m just a photographer!

    I have a bunch of “scraps” of vinyl banner material, large enough for many banners of different sizes. How/who is the best way to get this to you?

    • RoadRunneR November 7, 2011 at 2:35 am #

      i spent this week-end past constructing a height-adjustable banner-easel, bought a good 28″ hollow door to pin the banner-material to — in this case, it was “red” (pink) butcher-paper…laid-out a design i did on Word or something, 3 x line banner (consensed-on @ least twice) “Ocupa a Wall Street/Asemblea General de Alburquerque/Somos el 99%”…the kid’s poster/tempera paint i used was crappy; i want to up-grade to ‘1- Shot’ poster paint, it’ll make the lettering MUCH better, i bet…reinforced the paper-banner edge all around w/2″ transparent tape; made a frame of cut & knotted heavy cord, then folded banner-edge over cord & taped THAT down…knotted big loops @ 4 x corners to tie to ‘flag-poles’ (i just got a couple 10′-footer 1″ x 2” for now)…my fantasy is a coupler of colorful, all slogans both in Spanish & English on hand, ready for any 2 or 4 people to hoist up & represent Anytime! Anywhere!…set them up & guy them out, the banners are a dandy backdrop for media oppo’s or just for our identity @ GA’s maybe, or set-up/guyed-out facing the Central traffic, express “we’re still here, and we’re looking BETTER…”

      …ANYWAY…I’d like yer BANNER-MATERIAL VERY MUCH…got 2 x other lengths of 3′ colored butcher-paper, i just know they’re gonna get torn & trashed…How can we make this happen…?

    “A moment or a movement?”
    This was part of a comment from a panelist on the Bill Mauer show. Is it possible that Occupy is a “Moment’? The news from both the national media and our own web sites is increasingly focused on the right to occupy a space and the number of arrests. Occupy created the two largest protest marches over the last month on Central (with the help of MoveOn and unions) that have been held in years. But on Saturday last after advertising on three of the Occupy sites few Occupy participants showed for the demonstration outside Bank of America. Arguments over “who threw the bricks in Oakland” and “Are the police bringing drunks to the park at OWS” and the University’s refusal to cooperate are taking precedence over the issue of how to bring down the corporate power in America. Diffuse small actions are not as effective as focused actions against a tentacle of the corporate giant that has replaced democracy in America. Shouldn’t issues and action take precedence over where a GA meeting is held? Is Occupy getting tired? This is a movement! Let’s not let it wind down to a “moment”
