The @OccupyArrests Project seeks to document and publish an ongoing online record of those arrested in the Occupy Movement around the globe. The numbers of people arrested so far are astounding, as of 11/25, after two months of protests, over 4,500 arrests had been made, but these are only numbers. This project would involve the creation of a online portal for those active in the movement and those that want to learn more in a understandable and useful way. Elements of the portal would include searchable totals categorized by different factors, on the spot updates, legal resources, and profiles of protestors actually arrested.
There is a big need for making sense of these numbers, and this is an opportunity to do that. Funding from this campaign will go to the maintenance and development of a website providing these resources and its operational costs.
