  • Blowing in the wind  Lyrics:
    How many roads must a man walk down
    Before you call him a man
    How many seas must a white dove sail
    Before she sleeps in the sand
    How many times must the cannonballs fly
    Before they are forever banned
    The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
    The answer is blowing in the windHow many years can a mountain exist
    Before it is washed to the sea
    How many years can some people exist
    Before they’re allowed to be free
    How many times can a man turn his head
    And pretend that he just doesn’t see
    The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
    The answer is blowing in the windHow many times can a man look up
    Before he sees the skyHow many ears must one woman have
    Before she can hear people cry
    How many deaths will it take till he knows
    That too many people have died
    The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
    The answer is blowing in the wind 

OWS Journal


A volunteer group runs the paper at a secret location. Among them, Levitin, a former freelance reporter for Newsweek, the LA Times and the Associated Press

“It was essential to get something into people’s hands that they could pass, share, distribute. It was a tactile visual not embodiment, but representation of what’s happening in the square, that isn’t being told by the mainstream media,” he said.

The newspaper, as well as the revolution, were inspired by the Arab Spring.

“This is fundamentally an outgrowth of events that happened in North Africa in the Arab-speaking world this year. 2011 has been an incredible year,” said Michael Levitin.

Protest On Wall Street


A group in America recently constructed a custom wooden lectern with a megaphone holster and an attached sign that read, ‘Say Something Nice’.

They placed the lectern in a public space in New York and then left alone. It was a mission to see the New Yorkers would do if given the opportunity to amplify their voices to ‘say something nice’.

I love it. You kids had your future stolen by Wall Street. Let ‘em know what rats they are.
