Howard Zinn said that the problem in this country is not civil disobedience, it’s civil obedience. Since the Occupy movement emerged in New York City in September 2011, thousand of people have been arrested exercising their freedom of speech and assembly while participating in Occupy actions.
The number continues to grow. This well organized site documents the arrests, where and when they happened, and links to published articles documenting them.

If you or someone you know needs legal assistance or has been the victim of excessive police force or brutality at a protest or gathering, contact the National Lawyers Guild, a non-profit federation of lawyers, legal workers and law students who join in at Occupy protests, monitor police activity on the street and in jail, and are dedicated to the need for basic change in the structure of our political and economic system. NLG has been providing invaluable legal advice to movement folks who get inadvertently arrested at protests, as well as those who consciously commit civil disobedience.

InterOccupy | http://www.interoccupy.org
We at InterOccupy seek to foster communication between individuals, Working Groups and local General Assemblies, across the movement. We do this in the spirit of the Occupy Movement and general assemblies which use direct democratic and horizontal decision-making processes in service to the interests of the 99%.
We are currently hosting weekly conference calls using the Maestro conference call technology that allows up to 500 people to interact productively on phones. Maestro allows for smaller group breakout sessions so people with shared interests can connect in the middle of a large call.
