Elizabeth Warren, realkeeper.
Reports out there that police have a LRAD, also known as a Long Range Acoustic Device. From the Wikipedia page: “The Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) is a distance hailing device and non-lethal crowd control weapon developed by LRAD Corporation to send messages, warnings and harmful, pain inducing tones over longer distances than normal loudspeakers.” In other words, sound as a weapon. Whoa. (via @Newyorkist)
Occupy Wall Street becomes a world protest.
Starting from the top: protesters at a rally in Seoul, South Korea; masked protesters in Zurich, Switzerland; Hong Kong’s Exchange Square; the NYSE Euronext stock exchange protest in Amsterdam, where Pinocchio noses and fake euros are among the props; WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange outside the London Stock Exchange; thousands of protesters in Berlin.
Really hope the international flavor of the protests keeps up.
Rock on you guys! Also this weekend begins the “Occupy the Fed” movement where people are protesting directly in front of banks owned by the Fed! Of course, the mainstream media is censoring those protests, even google is censoring them. “We do not forgive. We do not forget. We are legion.”
