"There are no leaders in Liberty Plaza Park. Or, put another way, there are only leaders in Liberty Plaza Park. This makes certain things very difficult -- 'Whom do I talk to about performing after the GA tomorrow?' 'No one. Just announce you’re going to do it.' 'How do I make an announcement?' 'By talking out loud.' 'Where is there to have the performance?' 'Wherever you announce you’re going to have it.' -– but in more ways, it’s a thrill. ... There is a natural tension, therefore, when labor unions take public stands in support of the Wall Street occupation and arrange to join it for mass rallies like Wednesday’s." (10/06/11)
