When the NYPD raided the Occupy Wall Street camp in November, scores of activists and writers lost their personal journals as the police cleared Zuccotti Park.
The OWS librarians have recovered a number of these journals and are hoping to return them to their rightful owners. If you or someone you know lost a diary during the eviction, you can contact the OWS librarians directly. UPDATE: One of the OWS librarians wrote GalleyCat and said they still have lost journals.
Here’s more from the People’s Library: “If anybody lost a journal that is featured in either photo, please get in contact with me, email@example.com or 646-220-5655. It is my personal contact to ensure that it doesn’t get lost in the mass mailing list that we have for the library. To ensure it is yours, I would need some sort of verification, any kind that shows you are the rightful owner of the journal through knowledge of what is inside. Please spread this around to anybody that may have lost a journal on the night of the raid.”
