In the spirit of multilingual direct actions of yesteryear, Translationista has issued a call for translators for the ongoing Wall Street protest in downtown Manhattan. The NYT has relegated coverage -- including coverage of the NYPD using pepper spray at very close quarters on allegedly threatening protesters -- to its City Blog.
