On that above link, it just stated that 70 were arrested at the Occupy Bank of America location, but I don't know if they meant NYC or Charlotte . . . ???? And it was just a scroll at the bottom of the feed, so I don't know if it is accurate . . . can anyone confirm if anything is going on here in CLT right now???

Okay. Appears those arrests were in SF.

Yes, good idea. I will check.

I love a parade, too, lol - especially the cow bells and drums.

The livestreams just look like folks milling around . . . no real message other than "we have the streets" and "we've got the power."

I can't figure out what it is they are trying to accomplish. Looks more like Mardi Gras than rioting in the streets. I guess that is a good thing . . .

Wait'll five pm when they attempt to occupy the Brooklyn Bridge. If they use the walkways it'll be cool. If they attempt to shut it down the way they're talking, and they walk the actual roadways...

These folks are just whooping it up (in NYC). They don't seem very serious about anything at all. I can't imagine they would really want a confrontation. Maybe 10% are hard-core, but most of these people seem to be students or just folks w/ nothing to do who are tagging along. I am listening to a livestream and reading the chat . . . and it is more or less people kidding around and yucking it up - at this point, anyway. IMHO.

Not seeing any coverage about occupy in CLT so guess nothing is happening.
