Less than one week after their generators were confiscated, Occupy Wall Street protesters are using bicycles to generate power for their encampment in Lower Manhattan's Zuccotti Park.

Occupy Wall Street: Take the Bull by the Horns your social media marketing partner


A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Ironic that a protest camp like this works better and more collectively than our established cities. Should be a model for how to address urban homelessness, if our political leaders gave a crap about the homeless...

This is so coo. and s hows how easy it is to be green. If people with little resources in a temporary residential situation can do this, what is the problem with town, cities big and small. I know that many are making headway - but for example, the new housing that is going up in SF in the old Mission Bay area are just these high rises, no doubt high tech, but not green, friendly, community making housing that green architects know how to make. A shame. All that investment... and a missed opportunity for the residents, for the City, for the climate.

I just love this movement! Everyday its another cool, inclusive idea. Loved the street vendor idea and being able to donate to them as well to provide different types of food to our front lines! Keep up the great work OWS!

This is great stuff. Needs to be kept going right through the cold months. OWS is leading the way to end corporate greed and political corruption and being green in the process.
