Inspired by new Yorkers' occupation of Wall Street area to protest
against the looters who on call themselves bankers, we Londoners
could repeat the exercise here and occupy a selected City street.

You're naive. The real problem is government debt. Try comparing the size of the two problems. Bank bailout versus all the government liabilities.

I suggest making regular late night drinking expeditions to the City,
followed by brief stops at the revolving doors of the financial
institutions. It's only what they're doing to the rest of us.

We try and keep the Hackspace and this list apolitical, so this
discussion does not belong here.

Please keep your politics off the mailing list. We are an incredibly
diverse group and attempt to be politically neutral in order to be
welcoming to everyone.

While we allow people to quietly work on varied political projects in
the space, we do not allow them to bother other members with their
opinions unless invited.

Leonard Cohen references, on the other hand, I can get behind.

I think she used to host "Bad Influence" in the early 90s.

Yeah,

I saw them outside Wall St about 5 hours ago - seemed like quite a crowd.

Got a couple of photos of them from the open top tour bus.

United Nations and Obama are in town tonight - massive traffic chaos
as the cops close half of Manhattan for security reasons.

I'm homeward bound tonight - might even make the 'space tomorrow night


Ken in New York.
