Did anyone setup some webcam streams from the front lines. OWS has $500,000 in cash I heard. I would invest in many cameras to get all angles of the park and put them on a live feed. I would also save as much as possible on backups. This will permit the world to see exactly what is going on, and if you have a clash with the police, you will have it on video to show the world exactly what happened.

They have to pay taxes on that $500,000 first.......Since the OWS is considered RICH by the OWS standards............heh heh.......

As you may already know, as it has been widely reported, the Alliance for Global Justice is the fiscal sponsor for Occupy Wall Street.


"So what does the Alliance for Global Justice do for Occupy Wall Street (OWS)? Essentially we collect and process their donations and pass the money on to them as a project of the AfGJ. In IRS parlance we take “responsibility for all financial and programmatic matters” of OWS. We are responsible to include their financial reporting as part of our own when we file our annual tax return, which for non-profits is called a form 990. We are accountable legally and financially to prove that all expenditures by OWS are within the IRS’s tax-exempt rules. If the IRS audits us, we will have to show supporting evidence of the numbers we report. Occupy Wall Street’s obligation to us is to provide the accounting and receipts we’ll need for the IRS and to not jeopardize our tax-exempt status through any actions of theirs."

I don't care WHO they are...........I would never trust some other organization that is concerned about "jeopardizing our tax-exempt status".

IMHO this movement was not well planned. All of this should have been in place before it began.
