For my “Anti-Occupy” friends: What Fox News Isn’t Showing You.
I know you disagree with a lot of what Occupy stands for, and I respect your right to have those ideas. I’m asking you to try to put that pov aside for 10 minutes to watch this raw unedited video you won’t see on MSM.
Please ask yourself what was accomplished? How much taxpayer money was spent to surround a group of protesters who simply wanted to have a protest march through public space.
Also ask yourself if you think it is morally, ethically, or legally right to prevent any exit route for peaceful protesters, declare the entire group under mass arrest, and stick the taxpayers with the bill.
Even if you disagree with why they are assembling, they have a right to assemble without being herded and corralled like cattle, beaten, intimidated, shot at, gassed, etc.
NOT because I agree with what they are protesting about, but because I believe they have a constitutionally guaranteed right to protest and express dissatisfaction with their Govt.
As does the Tea Party, and the NRA, and Westboro Baptist. (JustSayin)

According to the eye-witness who captured this footage, an Occupy march was stopped by Oakland PD at Telegraph Avenue and William Street. There protesters were asked to leave but were surrounded. Cops used flash grenades, pointed guns at protesters and used batons against the unarmed demonstrators. Eventually the protesters find a way out.

It’s currently slated to be 27 degrees the 13th of January. Yet Huntington Bank is throwing a cancer patient into the streets. And it will be below freezing. Is this economic justice?

Occupy Cleveland is brainstorming ideas for television ads. This is the first video I have seen from the group in the “info-based” category.
I think they are looking for volunteers with a background in advertising, web design, tv or radio, video editors etc. who can volunteer their time and skillset moving this project forward.
I’ll stop babbling now, and let the video speak for itself.

I would be LIVID if my judge refused to take calls regarding my case!
Is that Justice? Is that fair?
Is it even Legal? Any Legalista’s out there have the answer?
This came to me from an Occupy Cleveland-er. It breaks my heart.
It’s a real sign of how much our system is broken when a family can be evicted from their family home of 40 years just before Christmas with an appeal still waiting to be heard. One judge is on vacation, one refusing to take calls, and neither willing to let the eviction be part of a moratorium that starts in 2 business days. It almost seems like they’re doing everything they can to take property away from homeowners. The banks got a bailout with our tax dollars, but they systematically refuse to work with us to let us stay in our homes.
What happened here? These are not numbers slipping through the cracks, these are PEOPLE. Living in the home that has been in their family for over 35 years.
All she is asking for is someone in the courts to examine the open appeal. What benefit is there for Orwell, Judge Vettel, Judge Yost, or even Highway Patrol to evict this family 2 days before the moratorium begins.
Do we live in a country which is ok with evicting a family of four from their family home while they still have an open case appeal?
