A report on the blockade of the ICE field office in Centennial, CO.
"Occupy Oakland began as a protest encampment at Frank H. Ogawa Plaza on October 10, 2011. Protestors renamed it Oscar Grant Plaza after a young man who was fatally shot by Bay Area Rapid Transit Police in 2009. The encampment was cleared out by multiple law enforcement agencies on October 25, 2011. The movement also helped spur the November 2, 2011 Oakland General Strike that shut down the Port of Oakland. Police again cleared the protest encampment at Frank Ogawa Plaza on November 14, 2011. Other protest encampments were created and subsequently dismantled by law enforcement. The last encampment at Snow Park was cleared on November 21, 2011."
Sizeable protests have been taking place in St. Louis almost every day since Officer Jason Stockley was acquitted in the shooting of Lamar Smith. Rebelutionary Z has been streaming most actions live on his stream: http://rebz.tv/

"[Drew Burbridge] was separated from his wife, Jennifer, who alleged that she was taunted by officers who asked her if she 'liked' watching her husband being beaten and told her 'Come back tomorrow and we can do this again.'"

Redneck Revolt got some coverage in the Guardian:
"Redneck Revolt is a nationwide organization of armed political activists from rural, working-class backgrounds who strive to reclaim the term “redneck” and promote active anti-racism. It is not an exclusively white group, though it does take a special interest in the particular travails of the white poor. The organization’s principles are distinctly left-wing: against white supremacy, against capitalism and the nation-state, in support of the marginalized."
A long Austin Chronicle article on the Red Guards Austin. My favorite part is when the assistant chief of police calls them "anarchists". Marxist-Leninists love that.
It's almost unbelievable to me how much effort law enforcement put into identifying someone accused of throwing an unlit molotov at a protest.
According to various sources, more than 2,000 people were at the protest at John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens, New York City with other protests appearing at significant international airports around the U.S.
This is by far the best defense of looting I have read today.

"The trial revealed that CPD infiltrators Mehmet Uygun and Nadia Chikko, known to the activists as 'Mo' and 'Gloves,' helped plan and instigate the crimes. They plied the defendants with alcohol, getting them drunk on multiple occasions, helped purchase gasoline for the Molotov cocktails, and even cut up a bandanna to use as a wick."
The Denver Post also reports "Six arrested in downtown Denver Protest": http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_25505064/six-arrested-downtown-denver-protest
There was also a "not one more deportation" pro-immigration march scheduled earlier in the afternoon on Saturday, but I haven't seen any reporting on it. I guess no one got arrested.
As someone only peripherally involved but who followed along with the news, I thought Kelsey Whipple did a great job reporting on Occupy Denver.
I'm number 4!
This was a day after I was arrested. There was a big demonstration in Denver with DPD shooting kids out of trees with pepper balls and everything.

I think Wikipedia editors have done a fine job of summarizing these movements. There's also a separate "Timeline of the Arab Spring" article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_the_Arab_Spring
