Occupy Wall Street

The corporate media are attempting to ignore and belittle the Occupy Wall St. protestors. Join other bloggers to get their messages out.

What started as a small gathering on Wall Street is becoming a nationwide movement.

Unsurprisingly, the corporate media continue to ignore and deride this movement. It will take independent outlets like Firedoglake and citizen journalists like yourself to give these protests the attention they deserve.

FDL has been covering Occupy Wall Street since day one, and the Dissenter’s intrepid Kevin Gosztola has been the premier source of information for those following the protest. He’s in Washington D.C. right now and will be heading to New York to report live from Occupy Wall Street.

But the movement is spreading – across the nation and even the globe. We need more eyes and ears to capture these protests. Signup as a citizen journalist and help FDL broadcast the occupation movement.

The “Occupy” movement is an expression of the outrage and despair millions of Americans have felt towards our corrupt political system. People are gathering from New York to Los Angeles to voice their discontent, and their numbers are growing by the day.

Firedoglake has been one of the few sources of extensive coverage of Occupy Wall Street since the beginning, and Kevin’s work has already been featured on outlets such as Russia Today.1Salon’s Glenn Greenwald even cited Kevin’s “excellent analysis” of the movement.2

Kevin’s coverage has shamed the mainstream media for their smug condescension toward protestors. His work is exemplary of what real reporting should be. Now is your chance to join him: FDL wants to build a corps of citizen journalists to amplify the message of the Occupy movement.

In Washington and New York, Kevin will be there — talking to these activists as they call for an end to the corporate-military machine that dominates U.S. politics. But we need you to report as well and make sure these protests don’t go unnoticed.

Thanks so much. The occupation won’t end until the corporate and political classes are held to account. And with your help, neither will FDL’s coverage.

Deepest thanks,
