Yesterday, 01 Oct. 2011, over 700 of the adamantly non-violent 99%ers occupying Liberty Plaza on Wall Street were led onto New York's Brooklyn Bridge by the police, trapped in a pincer maneuver, arrested and hauled to jail.

Thousands crossing above on the overloaded pedestrian board plank walkway, with many concerned for their own safety, witnessed and documented the outrageous tactic of the New York police.

"Kettled" a word used recently by participants, many students, in England to describe this dirty tactic by the police is now part of the American language.

Indeed from an economic perspective many tens of millions are being "kettled" by stingy bankers sitting on over $2 trillion, refusing to "stimulate" the U. S. economy while reaping record salaries.

Listen to Charles M. Young, a veteran journalist who witnessed yesterday's police outrage from the walkway above the mass arrests on the Brooklyn Bridge and has in the last 15 days attended many of the daily "General Assembly" meetings there.

He describes some of the new social revolutionary new ways the 99%ers are organizing.

Those across the country starting their own "occupations" may find this important.
Charles M. Young is a former "Random Notes" Editor at Rolling Stone (writing the Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn and Ralph Nader interviews for the magazine), a music reviewer for Musician, Playboy and Atlantic Monthly and Men's Journal. He is part of the on-line news collective of reporters at This Can't Be Happening.net
