Occupy Takes Aim at ALEC Today in 70 US Cities

Yana Kunichoff, Truthout: ''Today, legislators and companies including Pfizer, Bank of America and Walmart, that benefit from the American Legislative Exchange Council s (ALEC) power in the legislative system will be the target of demonstrations, direct actions and various public shows of anger across the country under the banner of Shut Down the Corporations. 'The public is never informed that a group representing the most privileged people in America are drafting the legislation that disempowers the most vulnerable,' said David Osborn with Occupy Portland.''

C. Wright Mills Would Have Loved Occupy Wall Street

Peter Dreier, Truthout: ''C. Wright Mills, the radical Columbia University sociologist who died 50 years ... would have loved Occupy Wall Street. Mills challenged the widely held belief that American society, having triumphed over the fundamental problems of the 20th century (depression, war and fascism) had become a model of economic success, political democracy and social well-being. At a time when social scientists and journalists were extolling America s post-World War II prosperity, Mills warned about the dangers of the growing concentration of wealth and power.''

WikiLeaks Exposes Department of Homeland Security Spying on Occupy Movement

Allison Kilkenny, In These Times: ''[Department of Homeland Security] document appears to be more concerned with protecting the mechanisms of the financial sector than in ensuring the safety of citizens who are exercising their First Amendment rights. They talk about threats to 'critical infrastructure' and this fear that these protests are going to ... make commerce difficult and people are going to start losing money. There is a kind of bottom line in analysis to what they are talking about.''

Occupy Wall Street Rallies Monitored by Dow Chemical

Lee Fang, Republic Report: ''Wikileaks revealed a massive trove of e-mails from the firm Stratfor. The e-mails show that the company, working on behalf of chemical giant Dow Chemical, closely monitored news coverage of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Stratfor relayed the activities of people seeking redress for the 1984 Dow Chemical/Union Carbide gas disaster in Bhopal, India, which resulted in the death of thousands and lasting environmental damage.''

A Tale of Two Protests: Shut Down the Corporations in Portland and Tucson

Alissa Bohling and Mike Ludwig, Truthout: ''Protesters in Portland, Oregon, and Tucson, Arizona, faced very different weather when they hit the streets yesterday, but they had one thing in common: they were among 70 cities nationwide where Occupy activists and others spoke out against members of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), whose decades-long history of authoring and pushing pro-corporate legislation through the nation s statehouses has been criticized for strangling political and economic participation across the country.''
