October 22, 2011 -- Occupy Wall Street Media -- Occupy Wall Street (#OccupyWallStreet) is the beginning of a whole new kind of democracy: a bottom-up people's democracy led by the 99%. It is a bold vision for the future that is beginning to inspire the nation. However, to pull it off, we're going to need a robust people's media unbeholden to corporate money. If we want people's democracy then we've got to build a people's media -- the two are inseparable.

We want to be the people's media. The Occupied Wall Street Journal, a four-page broadsheet newspaper with an ambitious print run of 50,000. It's aimed at the general public. The idea is to explain what the protest is about and profile different people who have joined and why they joined. We will explain the issues involved and how the general assembly process operates at Liberty Plaza. It will also offer resources and ways to join. The emphasis will be on quality content, design, photography and artwork that uses incisive humour to make it a lively read.

The slogan on page 3 is a great one -- "the whole world ISN'T just watching". That is an essential part of this movement, the sense the whole world is *taking part*. (Of course, the whole world *isn't* taking part, but large numbers in a very large amount places are doing so, often with strong public sympathy.)


Have we a means to make submission to the Occupied Wall Street Journal?

In this case we have a political cartoon (Chess Match) which seems relevant to the Occupy Wall Street Movement.
