Quick update

"The troublemaker is precisely the one who tries to force sovereign power to translate itself into actuality." Giorgio Agamben, Homo Sacer

Today marked the second week of the occupation of Wall Street. Mass arrests, pepper spray, and gruesome photos finally forced mainstream media to cover this unprecedented protest.

Friday night, the Chaplains met to discuss our next steps. We're making plans to return to our friends and allies in New York, and are planning meetings with other locals for Occupy Boston.

Despite efforts by Yahoo, Twitter, YouTube and Facebook to hinder social media efforts, the movement is growing.

Protesting is not a crime. It's more necessary now than ever.

Stay tuned, rest well, and peace be with you!
