Mayor Jean Quan wants OWS to disown Occupy Oakland

Published: 31 January, 2012, 05:13

Occupy Oakland demonstrators shield themselves during a confrontation with the police in Oakland (Reuters / Stephen Lam)


“…In the early days of Occupy Oakland, an Iraq War veteran was critically injured after being hit in the skull by a police-fired projectile. On Saturday’s march, law enforcement once again fired ammo into crowds of protesters and were videotaped swinging batons at protesters and journalists alike. As demonstrators declare their intentions with chants of “this is a peaceful protest,” Mayor Quan sees it from another side…”

“…Now the city leader is appealing to other Occupy movements across the country to disown Occupy Oakland in hopes of finally extinguishing the demonstrations that have scarred her administration due to overzealous arrests and the repeated firing of projectiles at peaceful protesters…”

“…Unfortunately for Mayor Quan, the national Occupy movement has by-and-large agreed (and insisted) several times that they are leaderless, so she might have a hard time trying to track them down…”



2) Here’s an early draft of a statement in response to Mayor Jean Quan.  [This is being created online as I’m writing this, collaboratively & in real-time, by the 99% nationwide]:


Dear Mayor Quan,

Your request for Occupy Wall Street and the other occupations to “disown” Occupy Oakland shows a failure to understand the nature of this movement and does a disservice to those you were elected to represent.

Among other things, occupying is about self-reliance, dialogue, skill sharing, and directly democratic decision-making. We organize within our communities to address the issues that affect them. The issues affecting the City of Oakland are not all unique, but, as in each of our cities, core problems of neglect, poverty, inequity, and voicelessness rob families of their wealth, individuals of their dignity, and communities of their togetherness. The unique circumstances of Oakland require customized solutions that your and other administrations have failed to provide. Your city’s people have risen up to take responsibility for their struggle, and it’s you who must answer to them, not the other way around.

Oakland wants change, and so do we.  The use of physical violence, rubber bullets, bean bags and chemical weapons against occupiers, including children, is a disgrace.

Your dispute is between your city and yourself, Mayor Quan. If you’d like our help in addressing some of the causes of Oakland’s burdens, we are here in solidarity. But until you join the struggle for justice, we recommend you do not expect our compliance.

Expect us,

1) We (my buddy DJPF and I) go to a great DIY record show.

2) We buy records.

3) We immediately go to my place to listen to them.

4) We talk about them.

Alice Cooper’s sad member:  Why do ya think that guy in red is so sad…I think he wanted to be topless, too.  “No dice”, says Mr Cooper…hence the Michael Cera face.  I think the guy in back agrees with me…Also, the short guy wants to tell us something.               


'Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind' (the home game)


"I chase fish with a Jeep." --C.W. McCall--


"I'm infested with ticks...and I want you." --C.W. McCall--


P.S.–All the music on this show is mine (besides the obvious stuff that we’re saying is other people & one 4-second thing somewhere in an old episode). The song that opens the show is on my record–Check it out and/or buy this aforementioned record/song at:




"You want a sandwich?...or like, some Saltines or something?"





The words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (01.15.1929)…

…with music by: dirtbike. (featuring sax by: Nate Lumbard)

I listened to ~400 hours of Dr King’s words. Whenever he was talking about Vietnam, it sounded like he was talking about Iraq/Afghanistan…I put it to some of my music…THE END.



Wrath (Latin, ira), also known as anger or “rage”, may be described as inordinate and uncontrolled feelings of hatred and anger. Anger, in its purest form, presents with self-destructiveness, violence, and hate that may provoke feuds that can go on for centuries. Anger may persist long after the person who did another a grievous wrong is dead. Feelings of anger can manifest in different ways, including impatiencerevenge, and vigilantism.


Here’s the last installment of the original night of recording back in March ’11.  Get ready for a silly one…
