For those of you who haven’t been following the #TakeBackWallStreet or #OccupyWallStreet action, today was the first day of Occupy Wall Street. Background on the inspiration for the action can be found here.

A live blog has been running on FDL’s The Dissenter since the action began around noon today. It is night time. A general assembly has apparently voted to try and occupy some public sidewalk legally on Wall Street. That is after the owner of the property they were on reportedly said the protesters might be able to stay and camp. Riot police and police on horseback have had the protest surrounded. It is said that 10 pm ET was the curfew police were imposing and they would all be dispersed from the park area then.

Now, the live blog resumes here.
