I live near Toronto, and if I did not have commitments preventing me, I'd be happy to be taking part. Altho the protest here is small, I'm impressed by the form and -- surprisingly, since T.O. is a conservative place with a (recent) history of animosity and violence toward leftist protest -- the media coverage of the event.
By "impressed by the form", I mean that the purpose is ambiguous (beyond a general concern about current global economics) and it has been left up to the actual participants to decide what it is they want to say and how they will say it.
By "impressed by the media coverage", I mean that for the most part, they have not towed the simple (right wing reactionary) line and said, "This is too ambiguous, these people don't have their tish together and do not deserve an audience." Instead (for the most part), they seem to be intrigued by the ambiguity and giving some credulence to the form. Now that is evolutionary social progress!
So I thot I'd start this thread looking for comments by people in other "occupied" cities. A few of them (sadly, IMO) have clearly become oppositional, but my feeling is that the peaceful, small scale, diffuse and heterogeneous T.O. protest is typical.
Tangential observation: I notice a lot of the masks worn by Anonymous (the h/cracker collective) supporters here and internationally. Personally, I think that is a negative thing, as however noble the goals of Anonymous are, their tactics IMO are terrorist tactics. However, I do recognize that Anonymous can be a clever bunch with (presumably) a serious, significant global presence whose interests are not necessarily cyber-terrorism, but cyber-savvy, and wonder what role they have played in the "Occupy" movement.
