      I'd like to note that I received my Tshirt from The Yes Men, http://tmwrk.com/edit-profile , who appear to have taken over the project from the original people who seem to have dropped the ball. Thanks for picking up where the other guys left off, and thanks for the Tshirt!

      Just wanted to lend my voice to those who feel disappointed and disillusioned. When I donated $125, I did so thinking that - since I couldn't be there to support OWS in person - I was supporting a movement I believed in in the best way I could. It's not because I'm superficial that I am disappointed - it's not that I really need the various materials in order to experience my support. It's the thought that I sent money to a group of people who I believed were working to shed light on corporate irresponsibility only to find that those corporations would be more likely to provide their promised services for the stated fees than this branch of the OWS movement. Stuff like this unfortunately kills the credibility of the message.

      See that comment over to the right, "You're a backer"...it should read, "You're a sucker"...sent money, was lied to...and the comments from the sponsors about not fulfilling the promised rewards miss the point...you've lost all integrity...isn't this a key principle against which the group was protesting?

      They're a bunch of con artists. Here's one that calls herself "Grim Womyn" https://www.facebook.com/grimwomyn/info
      She is also soliciting funds for the project through paypal.

      On another page they claim to have only collected 20,000 or so where here it is obviously over 70. An investigation into these crooks is needed.

      I sent them all of the info they've requested and so far haven't received anything. Is this project even affiliated with OWS? Seems like it might just be a take-the-money-and-run.

      It's great to send money to New York and all that, but in the future I'm keeping it close to home. Looking back on it, I think the money I spent on Kickstarter would have been better spent here, so that's what I'll do. So far, I've gotten, out of t-shirt, newspapers, and a thank you, pretty much everything except the t-shirt, and the second issue of the paper. Not sure abot the thank you, but I really don't care. OK, two out of three ain't bad.

      Oh my god I just got my copy of the newspaper. At first I wasn't even going to send my address because I really didn't want anything, like I could just read it online or whatever. But I'm so glad I did. I don't know what I was expecting, some kind of 'zine or something. But it's a true work of art. Bravo. I am going to show it to all my friends. And keep it!

      Creator CLAUDIA NELSON on December 2, 2011

      I appreciate all - or most all - comments here. I too wondered if the effort promise had frayed into nondelivery of promises. Even if that had remained so- which IT HAS NOT- I am so very pleased at how the occupied media individuals as well as the whole OWS movement have conducted themselves as well as their innovative enterprises of expression, steadfastly keeping clear of the pitfalls of co-optation and giving in, let alone, selling out! I salute you! Keep on keeping on! You are the best latest thing in America today! Having said all this , I'm excited to be getting a hard copy of yout GREAT newspaper!
      From what I've seen of it - and read online, it truly is exemplary! Excellent standards!

      Creator Robin Farley on December 2, 2011

      I am a little worried that some folks had something else in mind when they kicked in some cash for this worthy effort. I would like to state for the record that I didn't support this kickstarter so that I could have a momento of the event suitable for framing or flipping on eBay. For that reason I wasn't overly concerned when November came and went and there was nothing in my mailbox. The fact that this KickStarter has enabled the publication of five (seven) issues as well as a well executed web site is sufficient performance for me. I am looking forward to my backer gift whenever it arrives and want to thank you all for giving voice to the 99%.

      OK, this is the last Kickstarter project I'm funding. It's just another take the money and run thing, make big promises and do nothing. It's the same corporate wall of non-communication that you get from the major corporations. See ya.

      Creator John Petros on November 26, 2011

      Thank you for the response - Its all I needed. These people are doing their best and its for a cause I agree with. Long Live OWS ! Smiles.

      Creator Jennifer on November 23, 2011

      I am surprised by the responses in this feed. I have backed many projects and in many cases have had to wait patiently for my reward. My patience is from knowing that no matter what, I backed a project because I saw it align with my values. Whether or not I receive the reward, I'll be happy to know I contributed to something I can put my consumer dollar towards. The fact that 1696 people were willing to back such a movement fills me with excitement and opportunity.

      However, I am slightly disheartened by the few that are willing to cancel your support, yet, are still yearning for information and communication. With all that the Occupy Wall Street movement has to deal with in the trenches,I am happy to see they are still maintaining the newspaper online. http://www.breakingcopy.com/occupied-wall-street-journal-issue-3-pdf

      People. Everything is exactly as to be expected.
      You need to read your documentation and watch the news.

      1. Estimated Delivery: Nov 2011
      2. Since that estimate, they've been attacked, raided, smashed, bloodied, assaulted, dispersed, defiantly reunited, etc etc. Are YOU so short-sighted and inhumane as to expect them to have time to give you your little commercial rewards right on schedule?

      Did you back this project on principle or on greed?
      Those who backed on principle are probably going to gratefully refuse the rewards, since the giving, sharing, and sense of justice is its own reward.

      Get over your own privilege and greed and you'll have some idea how to deal with the bankers' privilege and greed. And you'll be able to HELP this movement instead of just crying for your cookies.

      I finally got a response on facebook much like the one Toni got. If it was possible to delete comments on here I would. But I am still concerned that they haven't bothered to log onto kickstarter and update their contributors.

      Creator Toni Good on November 21, 2011

      I actually received a response after sending a message to occupymedia@gmail.com
      Here it is:

      ".. mailings to supporters are getting into gear this week. The pace of events has been intense, and lacking a support staff a lot of work is piled up on very few people. We've got some friends at the Indypendent who are going to help get the rewards flowing this week."

      So . . . we'll see what happens.

      Please note that there is now another Kickstarter Project to publish the Occupy Wall Street Declaration of Independence. I sent an email to this other project, saying that I am leery of donating because of the poor communication on the Occupy Wall Street Media project.

      Creator Arman Rousta on November 19, 2011

      All,
      Yes, let's be patient...but OWS Media, you HAVE to communicate better - you're Media after all, and communication should be your forte.

      I am fine with not getting the papers for a bit, as long as we have some information. As a big supporter - and participant - in OWS, I do want to say that this kind of situation of possible theft, lack of authority, etc. is part of the negative and unproductive aspects of the whole 'leaderless' philosophy. There needs to be someone accountable, that has something on the line when it comes to being answerable to supporters, contributors and constituents.

      Let's just communicate better, and let us know who (individual) or what group of people are in charge, so we have someone to depend on for information here. OWS Media is an important venture and part of the movement - but it has to be well-run and organized, which requires some level of hierarchy and order.

      Creator R.C. on November 19, 2011

      If you are not going to publish the paper, you need to give the money raised to the Occupy Wall Street movement. They have an actual bank account and could use the money for other demonstrations etc. DO THE RIGHT THING!!!

      What's up Occupy Wall Street Media? I am very much aware that the movement is on no kind of schedule per say, and thus I have been very patient,... (yes, I'm referring to the lack of a publications mailed per my donation) BUT an update, AT LEAST, would help ease some minds. Please act responsibly. I don't want to be left with nothing but a bad taste in my mouth. I am a student from CA (another state wide tuition cost hike was just approved today) who cut $60 from my grocery budget so as to give it to you all instead. NOT COOL!

      Creator R.C. on November 14, 2011

      The successes of the Occupy movement have nothing to do with the success of this project's Kickstarter funding. There have been no updates since October and nothing published. This money was supposed to go to help the movement and instead it appears it went into a few people's pockets - which is EXACTLY what the Occupy movement is protesting against!!!

      I am amazed at the successes that have taken place since I backed this. Way to go everybody! Power to the people!! The review on the KXL, BofA backing down on their $5 fee's, 650,000 people closing their accounts on Bank Transfer Day, The October 15th Global Day of Action, The 100,000+ Oakland Strike, The seachange in public discourse!? I love you guys.

      I too am wondering why I did not receive a query about how you are going to send the newspaper, even though I asked, is it through the mail, the web you know what I mean. The folks that have posted about being upset are another reason for concern. November 2011 is here. when in 2011? My God you received over 6 times what you asked for and I could have published a lot of books and cartoons with that money, plus buy blankets for the kids here in Syracuse that are freezing in the movement.

      For some reason, I get the feeling my money went to the people who did the Kickstarter project and not to any newspaper publication effort. . . I feel badly because I really wanted to support the Occupy Wall Street movement and now I think the $125 I donated actually went to some very enterprising capitalists!

    49. Missing_small

      Creator Toni Good on November 5, 2011

      I'm beginning to wonder if this project is a scam. The last update on the Kickstarter site was October 7. The last email I received was October 9. It isn't nice to take people's money and then disappear. I would at last like to see an update on this site, to let us know what is going on.
