New website, new city, new post...

Well, I arrived in New York, where I'm staying for a month, just in time to see the Occupy Wall Street camp torn down by the NYPD. You can read what I wrote about it for the Guardian, here (comment) and for the Independent, here (news report). Both were filed from my phone whilst standing in the sterile zone, watching police tear the occupation apart. There was nothing we could do.


In other news, I have a shiny new professional website. If you want to contact me, all the details are on there. La lutta continua.

  1. This is a bit off topic, but I just saw you on Newsnight debating with a former Goldman Sachs partner. I was very impressed with the way you managed to convey your views against him. Keep up the good work!

  3. Hi Laurie,
    I just watched a video clip of BBC Newsnight where you handed a former Goldman-Sachs partner his ass when he tried to dodge responsibility for banks in regards to the global recession we are facing.

    Thank you for your fearlessness and your continued journalism of this movement.

  4. They should have torn it down the day it was set up. But then, New York is so stinking liberal that I'm surprised they're tearing it down at all. Occupy Wall Street is made up of a bunch of low life troublemakers.

  6. Excellent interview on BBC. Loved your response to the GS mouthpiece who was babbling about structural deficits. To the substance of the issue, he should have been asked by the interviewer, if the structural deficits were also caused by the following: unnecessary and illegal wars, corporate welfare, speculative investing on the part of governments (Iceland, Greece, etc.), zero percent open windows at the central banks.

  8. It's "a luta continua". The struggle in Mozambique, Libya or Egypt is not comparable to those in the West protesting in the USA and the UK amongst others. It was incredibly self-indulgent for Time to use a white Westerner on their cover to represent the protestor, when thousands more Arabs have protested in the Middle East than in the West.

  13. As you can see, I'm still in New York, I have a marvellous new hat, and here is another round-up post. This month I've been writing about, amongst other things, sex, politics, the future, nerd guns, protest policing and the mating rituals of the young and foolish in New York City. nytaxpreparation.net
