A topless model the Tea Party should see, grandmas who dig rap music, and Ron Paul supporters everywhere: As of Saturday, MoJo’s Josh Harkinson is camping out in Zuccotti Park, and we’re collecting his dispatches and other #OWS must reads below, using Storify. Read on for much more.

Also, don’t miss the rest of MoJo’s coverage: Meet the activists who created “We Are the 99 Percent”; check out the former Obama blogger who scorned the protesters until he joined them; explore our interactive map of protest hot spots nationwide; and more.


FOLLOW THE MONEY

Corporations and billionaires don’t fund journalism like ours that exists to shake things up. Instead, support from readers allows Mother Jones to call it like it is without fear, favor, or false equivalence.

And right now, a longtime friend of Mother Jones has pledged an incredibly generous gift to inspire—and double—giving from online readers. That's huge! Because you can see that our fall fundraising drive is well behind the $325,000 we need to raise. So if you agree that in-depth, fiercely independent journalism matters right now, please support our work and help us raise the money it takes to keep Mother Jones charging hard. Your gift, and all online donations up to $94,000 total, will be matched and go twice as far—but only until the November 9 deadline.

$400,000 to go: Please help us pick up the pace!
