Occupy Wall Street will give "State of the 99%" after the SOTU

http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2012/01/ows-to-obama-the-state-of-the-99.html

This 2012 “State of the 99%” response to the State of the Union will be delivered by a group of Occupiers assembled outside in a well-lit spot at McPherson Square following the conclusion of the President’s State of the Union address and/or the Tea Party response.

The presentation will unfold this way: one participant will begin in the center/front of the group, in the middle of the camera frame, surrounded by the others. That person will deliver the first line of the speech, and will then be echoed by the People’s Mic. That person will then read their second line, and as the People’s Mic echoes the second line, that person will move off to the side and rejoin the group, while another person will step into the center spot to read the next two lines, with each line again echoed by the People’s Mic.

his will continue, cycling through the crowd, with each person reading two lines and being echoed by the People’s Mic.

Mic check! Mic check! Fellow Americans, good evening!
We are men and women of the 99 percent

Many of us have spent many months at Occupy Wall Street
and at other Occupations across the country and around the world

4. What a smart move. At least it will spread via YouTube, etc. while networks ignore it.

I'm hoping to find real-time video via Occupy site or somewhere.

Anyone know where?

7. K&R

And since the media is supposedly showing the teabaggers, they should be showing this as well. But we know what Raygun did to the fairness doctrine.

11. That will be fantastic

 

It'll tell the truth instead of reciting cooked-up govt numbers and insisting that we have to work with repukes.
