Don’t believe that the Occupy Wall Street movement is a wrap just because the NYPD raided Zuccotti Park earlier this week, OWS has a backup plan.
In a secret room located at the A.J. Muste Memorial Institute on Lafayette Street in Lower Manhattan, three men have been keeping the Occupy pulse live and kicking with live streaming video featured on their site globalrevolution.tv.
Spike, 26, FluxRostrum, 48 and Lorenzo Serna, 31 sat down with Wired.com and discussed the daily struggles of reporting a worldwide movement.
When NYPD raided Zuccotti Park in the dark of night, the trio of demonstrators felt that it was time to find a more secure area, due to increasing police involvement and other factors.
As Flux says:
“It was practically impossible to get anything done…and we don’t need right-wing wingnuts firebombing us.”
Flux, the unofficial leader of the group, has been a traveling video activist for 11 years, so raids are nothing new to the 48-year-old protester.
The trio who runs Global Revolution doesn’t want too much press about what they are doing or to reveal too much about their hideout, they just continue to work and spread the Occupy message.
