On September 17, an impassioned group of students, activists and veterans descended on Wall Street to set up a peaceful encampment and hold a people’s assembly in nonviolent civil disobedience to the commodification of contemporary society and the bank bailouts.

On September 30th rumor spread over twitter that an impromptu concert by the band Radiohead was going to take place at approximately 4pm in Zuccotti Park. Thousands showed up to see the concert, and although the rumor turned out to be false, hundreds of spectators joined the preexisting occupation and marched to occupy 1 Police Plaza in protest of the brutal arrest of some 80 protestors the day before.
