From Egypt to London to Wall Street, people everywhere have been banding together and taking to the streets (and the internet) to make their discontentments heard. But as we've seen, protesting can be risky, as peaceful protests can turn violent in an instant. Furthermore, certain behaviors can unexpectedly land even the most benign citizens behind bars. Being informed is key, which is why we've put together this Wired guide to protesting, which includes virtually everything you need to know about exercising your free speech rights.

Yesterday I was given a list of Occupy sites on Daily Kos, about 200 of them. Most were Facebook sites; there were a handful of blogs with feeds.
Of course without feeds they can’t be part of occupyweb.org. But that’s okay, because occupying Facebook is every bit as good as occupying Wall Street. Seriously. And because of what’s happening on Facebook, the show is going to move out to the web.
Read this article about where Facebook thinks they’re heading. And then try to imagine the conversations they’re having with advertisers. How long before there’s an Occupy for individual brands? And do they really want to compete with the occupiers on Facebook?
