Democratic decision making-the General Assembly

 

The donations-only coffee & tea tent

 

Then the Police & the Department of Homeland Security arrive…

 

Officer (McKinley?) chases a man running away, repeatedly hitting him with a baton on the head and back. #1

After tackling the man into this concrete wall, he cuffs him while his fellow officers push a cyclist over.

 

Once the man is cuffed and laying on the concrete, the officer feels it's necessary to drop a flying knee on him while his fellow officers stand by and let him.

 

How did the People respond?…Let’s see:

 

Decorating City Hall (it was removeable and was removed, don't fret).

 

Setting up the 99% Xmas tree at the front doors of City Hall...

 

At the beginning of the night, there were ~150-200 people.  After the ‘police state expo’ and the march through the streets of downtown…it had grown to ~2000 by the time the park was re-taken.

 

 

 

…an open letter…

Dear Policefolk all over the world,

You can choose to SERVE & PROTECT ‘Banks’ or ‘People’. That’s up to you.
The tricky thing is…

-Only 1 of these has anything at all in common with you.
-Only 1 of these gives a fuck whether you live or die.
-Only 1 of these is human.

I’m not trying to tell you what to do. Only YOU can decide…
(but maybe ask your kids what they would want you to do)

…The ball is in your court now. What’s it gonna be?
We are the 99%, just like you…
…Can we go through this beautiful moment of history together?…Please?
