As in New York, it's getting ugly in Boston and, apparently, Des Moines, with reports of mass arrests and allegations of police brutality at Occupy protests.

But not so for Occupy New Orleans, which has been camped out at Duncan Plaza for more than five days now without (serious) incident. (But with a warm greeting from Mayor Mitch Landrieu.)

The protesters are still there, still holding their nightly general assemblies and, today, still reaching out to local media with statements of future planned actions. The group announced today that it will participate in the Global Day of Action with a demonstration at 2 p.m. on October 15.
