For more information, including today's meeting agenda, go to facebook.com/occupynola, occupynola.org or the Google Groups discussion page at groups.google.com/group/occupynola. Follow #OccupyNola at twitter.com/occupynola.

The actual Occupy New Orleans protest will begin on Thursday, Oct. 6 (the national Occupy Together movement's "Day of Solidarity") at noon in front of Orleans Parish Prison at Tulane and Broad.

Note: That location was determined by a series of votes after protracted and sometimes heated discussion. My read on it was that it could very well change, more than once, by Thursday, so check the Web sites listed above. Other, rejected-as-of-now sites included Lafayette Square, Lee Circle and City Hall.

Protesters will march from there to Lafayette Square to protest at the New Orleans branch of the Federal Reserve. They plan to set up a long-term occupation "base camp" in Duncan Plaza at New Orleans City Hall.

More photos after the jump.
