Year 2 of Occupy Wall Street is quickly approaching. And to coincide with this first anniversary, we are pleased to announce the imminent release of the third issue of the magazine Tidal: Occupy Theory, Occupy Strategy. In both its intellectual rigor and its large-scale distribution, Tidal has been recognized as a force to be reckoned with not only by allies on the Left, but also by outlets of the powerful Right-Wing media establishment such as Andrew Breitbart’s talk show The Blaze (http://bit.ly/GUlDXv). In order to ensure that Tidal can play this role in pushing the movement forward, we would like to ask for your financial assistance for printing costs. Printing will be done by Tristate, a unionized printer. This link (www.wepay.com/tidal3) has a short letter detailing the state of the movement, it’s future direction, and a very easy way to make a monetary contribution (www.wepay.com/tidal3).

Anonymous Joins #OCCUPYWALLSTREET
Jammers, dreamers, patriots,
Anonymous has just released a video communique endorsing #OCCUPYWALLSTREET. Using language from our first Tactical Briefing, the video calls on protesters to adopt the nonviolent Tahrir-acampadas model. On the 17th of September, it says, “flood into lower Manhattan, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months … Once there, we shall incessantly repeat one simple demand in a plurality of voices.”

If you live in the NYC area, here is a chance to be the change..
Insert Republican for every blank: _______ is a radical, authoritarian nationalist political ideology. ______s advocate the creation of a totalitarian single-party state that seeks the mass mobilization of a nation through indoctrination, physical education, and family policy. _______s seek to purge forces, ideas, and systems deemed to be the cause of decadence and degeneration and produce their nation’s rebirth based on commitment to the national community based on organic unity where individuals are bound together by suprapersonal connections of ancestry, culture, and blood. _______s believe that a nation requires strong leadership, singular collective identity, and the will and ability to commit violence and wage war in order to keep the nation strong. ______ governments forbid and suppress opposition to the state.
South Dakota government, you suck. Hands down. How dare you demean women and treat them like children by requiring a 72 hour wait period before allowing them to have an abortion. Like a woman dealing with an unplanned and unwanted pregnancy needs anymore time to think about her situation.
When my friend had an abortion, she first put off thinking about the pregnancy for a full week until the constant morning sickness kicked in and then EVERY LIVING MOMENT WAS DEDICATED TO THINKING ABOUT THE ALIEN BEING IN HER WOMB.
Do you really want there to be less terminated pregnancies? Invest in childcare. I can tell you from
my my friend’s experience that if she had been able to see anyway to have a newborn on her own and be able to pay rent and continue to go to college, she would have done it. The moment of pregnancy, wanted/unwanted/successful/unsuccessful reaches into the root of being a woman. Regardless the circumstances and the result, women are consumed with pregnancy during every moment that they are, or trying to become, pregnant.
You have never seen someone obsess over something until you have witnessed a pregnant woman, or hormonal woman obsess, I assure you.
The approach of trying to make abortion services illegal or too difficult to obtain is clearly not about the children, if it were about children you would be putting your efforts towards what? Oh yes… CHILDCARE.
