Fritz Tucker, a Brooklyn blogger and activist, recounts his experiences with the OWS NYC-GA and the new “Spokes Council” formed relatively recently. Take his first-person account for what it’s worth; it seems at least plausible. If you had hopes that OWS would be truly leaderless and run by direct democracy and consensus, you may be dismayed by what appears effectively to be a coup in pursuit of access to the money that has been donated to Friends of Liberty Park (about $0.5 million).
Some things change everything. And some things never change…
