4:59 PM: There is currently no stream that I can find. If you are on the ground or know someone who is on the ground, I would really appreciate someone physically walking up to camera people and asking if they are streaming somewhere. If so, where.
4:53 PM: Barricades appear to be down in Liberty Square. Looking for new stream.
4:51 PM: Occupiers sitting down in a circle inside Liberty Square.
4:01 PM: Because the NYPD needed a reminder last night, I will say this upfront this time. We, the people are the source of your power. Just as easily as we grant you authority, we can just the same unilaterally take it away. Attack us, and we will take your authority from you. This is not a difficult concept to grasp. Government exists by the consent of the governed, and attacking people who are already close to refusing to recognize your authority is not the smartest self-preservation idea.
3:48 PM: Updates from overnight: I am told that the Harlem occupation passed a motion to rename itself "Stop Columbia University Displacement." They have been there one night, I am told. Does anyone have more information on this? I would love to hear from people there.
3:44 PM: Today's coverage is starting. Today is a march from Liberty Square, known to those who serve the 1% as "Zucotti", a name imposed on it by the 1%, to honor the 1%. Seriously, look this guy up.
