A number of groups marked the first anniversary of Occupy Wall Street on Sept. 17, 2012 in San Francisco. Hundreds came out for a rally, march, symbolic debt burning and dinner. Here’s a video I made of the event.

Additionally, here are a number of events I covered over the past year. The day after I was laid off was the Nov. 2 Port of Oakland shutdown organized by the emerging Occupy Oakland, and instead of sitting around bummed I went out to be a reporter no matter who paid me. Later I got hired for awhile by the Communication Workers of America-The Newspaper Guild on a special assignment around the movement where I mostly wrote and took photos. So in the spirit of 1980s sitcom flashback episodes, and an excuse to compile these since I didn’t have a blog back then, enjoy these recycled stories. We can say it’s sustainable or something. Additionally, you can click on the photos on this blog and see more photos through my flickr account.

UPDATE-Some of these links no longer work. I left the headlines up so I could remember being there. If the original copy comes up I’ll find a way to post it.
