Waging Nonviolence editor Nathan Schneider was on Democracy Now! this morning to report on the ongoing Wall Street protests, which drew significant police repression over the weekend. As the only journalist spending day and night at the protest, Nathan has become a go-to source of information for media seeking to understand #OccupyWallStreet. He has been interviewed by several Pacifica Radio stations, New York’s WBAI and a few international news stations. The New York Observer also interviewed Nathan for its coverage of Saturday’s police violence. As he told me just moments ago on the phone, “It’s bewildering how many interviews I’ve given in the last week and half.”
Nathan has also been mingling with the mainstream media that occasionally stop by, giving them the kind of background information they lack as a result of only showing up after something big has happened. This gap in their coverage and general lack of foresight is clearly problematic (e.g. Sunday’s New York Daily News). Clearly, Nathan’s efforts are showing why diligent reporting on activism is not only needed, but warranted.

Waging Nonviolence is hiring a writer to interview leading movement figures and analysts and produce one Q&A-style article per week. The writer will work with our small editorial team to identify the interview subject each week.

Thank you for your hard work. Saw you on Link TV.
I want a symbolic action in support of you.
Use cash in support of ‘Occupy Wall Street’
Every time you pay $10 with a debit card the bank gets 35 cents (3.5% commission)
If 3,000 people spent $10 in cash instead of debit the banks would loose $1,005.00.
Put a website up for ‘All cash for Occupy Wall Street’
Let us put first name and zip code once for each $10.00
Total it and you could say 1,500 marchers and $1,005.00 in bank fees taken away today.
We used to use disposable water bottles, now we only use them in emergencies. We wash ours.
We used to use debit cards, now we use cash. We keep our money away from the banks and support our local business by letting them keep the 35 cents.
I know everyone is really busy, but see if somebody could help with this. Everyone I have asked has said yes to me, but it won’t help if it isn’t tracked.
Thank you for all your hard work.
Keep on fighting. I’m in Michigan and can’t be there, but I support you all the way! You’re inspiring and I’m with you in spirit <3
