In recent days, protesters at the Occupy Wall Street demonstration in lower Manhattan have begun distributing the first issue of The Occupied Wall Street Journal, a four page broadsheet with articles on the development and character of the protest since it began three weeks ago, and its implicit relation to similar movements around the world. It also contains calls to action, information about upcoming marches, the first declaration of the general assembly, and how supporters can help. Published by a group of activsts at Liberty Plaza, where protesters have been camped out for over two weeks, tens of thousands of copies are currently being handed out in New York City.
The paper is not yet circulating widely online and does not appear to
have a website as of this writing. Mainstream media outlets such as the Wall Street Journal and Business Insider have published photographs of the paper, and some blogs are
circulating pdf files.
However, you can read a copy of The Occupied Wallstreet Journal online in its entirety at Third Party Independent. Be sure to check out the second print issue of Third Party Independent, published in late August, while you're there as well.
Since the Occupy Wall Street demonstration began on September 17th, protesters have consistently criticized the mainstream media for their coverage of the event or their lack thereof. The publication of The Occupied Wall Street Journal would seem to represent an attempt to counter the narratives about the movement that have been, and are in the process of being constructed in the corporate press. The Wall Street Journal provides details and background on its counterpart's origins.
