Due to spotty WiFi coverage at Dewey Sq. I am not able to post as much as I like, but I will try to keep up the information on the protests.
We are currently in day three of the occupy Boston movement and thing have been starting to coalesce into an organized movement. Yesterday we marched along a route from our base to the Prudential Center and back along Newbury St.. We received a lot of support from the people whom we met along the way and there were no issues with the police. Here are several photos from the march:
I was extremely surprised at the sheer level of diversity in the crowd that we have gathered for this protest. There are a large range of views, demands, and represented ideologies that have been shared among the group members in the past two days. We are currently discussing our demands as a group and hopefully we will settle upon a united set of demands that, despite our diversity, we can all agree on.

DISCLAIMER: I do not attempt to be polite or partisan in my articles, merely truthful. If you are a partisan and believe that the letter after the name of a politician is more important then their policies, I suggest that you stop reading and leave this site immediately--there is nothing here for you.
Modern American politics are corrupt, hyper-partisan, and gridlocked, yet the mainstream media has failed to cover this as anything but politics as usual. This blog allows me to post my views, analysis and criticisms which are too confrontational for posting in mainstream outlets.
