Occupy Wall Street: Police brutality, media blackout
As Occupy Wall Street demonstrations enter their second week, over 80 people were arrested over the weekend and police brutality surges on the streets. Many protesters say the mainstream media is undergoing a black-out since many corporate networks sleep in the same bed with Wall Street.

Greek Crisis Exacts the Cruelest Toll
Two years into Greece's debt crisis, its citizens are reeling from austerity measures imposed to prevent a government debt default that could cause havoc throughout Europe. The economic pain is the price Greece and Europe are paying to defend the euro, the centerpiece of 60 years of efforts to unite the Continent. But as Greece's economy shrinks, its society is fraying, raising questions about how long Greeks will be able to take the strain.
Gross domestic product in the second quarter was down more than 7% from a year before, amid government spending cuts and tax increases that, combined, will add up to about 20% of GDP. Unemployment is over 16%. Crime, homelessness, emigration and personal bankruptcies are on the rise.
The most dramatic sign of Greece's pain, however, is a surge in suicides.

Athens: Police Fires Tear Gas and Beat “Indignant” Greeks (videos)
Protesters and riot police have been ‘playing’ cat and mouse for several hours at Syntagma Square in downtown Athens. Riot police beats protesters and fires tear gas, while the protesters withdraw and come back. Proto Thema newspaper underlines that the police made ‘extensive use of chemicals’ to prevent the protesters from demonstrating right in front of the Unknown Soldier monument at the feet of Parliament.

“War and Shopping” amidst a World in Crisis: The Extremism that Never Speaks its Name by John Pilger
Looking for a bookshop that was no longer there, I walked instead into a labyrinth designed as a trap. Leaving became an allusion, rather like Alice once she had stepped through the Looking Glass. Walls of glass curved into concentric circles as one “store” merged into another: Armani Exchange with Dinki Di Pies. Exits led to gauntlets of more “offers” and “exciting options”. Seeking a guide, I bought a lousy pair of sunglasses: anything to get out. It was a vision of hell. It was a Westfield mega mall.
This happened in Sydney – where the Westfield empire began – in a “mall” not half as mega as the one that opened in Stratford, east London on 13 September. “Everything” is here, reported the architectural critic Jonathan Glancey: from Apple to Primark, McDonalds’s to KFC and Krispy Kreme. There is a cinema with 17 screens and “luxurious VIP seats”, and a mega “luxury” bowling alley. Tracey Emin and Mary Portas lead the Westfield “cultural team”. The biggest casino in the land will overlook a “24-hour lifestyle street” called The Arcade. This will be the only way into the 2012 Olympic Games for 10m people attending the athletics. The simple, grotesque message of “buy me, buy me” will be London’s welcome to the world.

Activists meet to defend Internet from state control
(Reuters) - Internet activists will this week make an 11th-hour attempt to stop governments seizing more control of the Web that has fueled Arab revolutions, enabled mass leaks of U.S. diplomatic cables and allowed online piracy to thrive.
Tales of a Beginning Teacher
On his first day of teaching, Brendan Clarke entered his southwest Chicago classroom wanting to teach kids to create rather than imitate, to break the line, rather than stand in line. Two years later, Brendan left to study permaculture and regenerative community design. This is Brendan’s story.
Lesson Learned, Now Let’s Move Forward (ESA)
I have written passionately (and frustratingly) about the Constitutional Council and its making of a new constitution for Iceland in this section before.
It is a passion shared by too few of my countrymen; sometimes I think foreigners take a keener interest in it than we do.
Even so, the Constitutional Council reported on its website that the public had been fairly active, posting 3,600 comments and sending 370 suggestions to its members.
9 examples of crowdsourcing, before ‘crowdsourcing’ existed
Crowdsourcing is the new black. Everyone’s doing it. Iceland is crowdsourcing its new constitution. Microsoft is crowdsourcing aspects of Windows 8. All this hype must mean it’s a new thing right? Surely it has to be a product of the web 2.0 or social media era?

The Federal Reserve Plans To Identify “Key Bloggers” And Monitor Billions Of Conversations About The Fed On Facebook, Twitter, Forums And Blogs
This is yet another sign that the alternative media is having a dramatic impact. As first reported on Zero Hedge, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York has issued a "Request for Proposal" to suppliers who may be interested in participating in the development of a "Sentiment Analysis And Social Media Monitoring Solution". In other words, the Federal Reserve wants to develop a highly sophisticated system that will gather everything that you and I say about the Federal Reserve on the Internet and that will analyze what our feelings about the Fed are. Obviously, any "positive" feelings about the Fed would not be a problem. What they really want to do is to gather information on everyone that views the Federal Reserve negatively. It is unclear how they plan to use this information once they have it, but considering how many alternative media sources have been shut down lately, this is obviously a very troubling sign.
Cycling with Contractions to the Hospital
If you live in Denmark it's not unusual to have heard stories of pregnant women riding their bicycle to the hospital with contractions. We've all heard the stories. Today, however, Copenahgenize is thrilled to provide some photographic documentation.
Bolivian protesters use official as shield
Amazonian indigenous groups in Bolivia have staged massive protests for more than a week against a government highway project imposed on their land.
In an unusual tactic recently used to avoid violent police attempts to crush the protests, demonstrators forced David Choquehuanca, the country's foreign minister, to march against the project with them against his own will.
While the government says the road is being built because its needed for development, the natives fear an invasion of settlers and are struggling to maintain their nature preserve.
