O Grande Irmão do Norte, aquele que tem pronto um modelo de democracia a ser exportado, prova mais uma vez quanto vale a sua própria liberdade [de expressão].

O site The AWL divulgou a lista de 26 repórteres presos ao cobrirem as manifestações do #OccupyWallStreet (deixei a lista em inglês):

• Natasha Lennard: Non-contract freelancer, now not covering politics for the Times.
• Kristen Gwynne: freelance writer and editorial assistant, Alternet.
• Marisa Holmes: Documentary filmmaker and activist, OWS organizer.

Keith Gessen, editor, n+1. (Along with “kathleen ross, and sarah leonard of n+1, dissent, and the #ows gazette” as per Charles Petersen. They were not engaged in reporting per se, but in demonstrating. But where do reporting and demonstrating diverge? There will be an essay to tell us about that later, I suspect.)
