«o» There are continuing coordinated attacks on #Occupy camps across the U.S. as the Wall Street protesters in Zuccotti Park spent a cold night obeying a court order that they have no blankets, no tents, and they stay awake all night sitting up straight. More.
Also note mayors from across the country have been strategizing together (still more @ Salon) to "deal" with the Occupy movement. That coordination includes assistance from the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI, which IS strange, considering there have been no federal offenses, and the people involved in the protests are, without a doubt, not 'criminals' or 'terrorists' in any sense of the word.
Meanwhile in Razer's neck of the #Occupation, Good News!
#OccupySantaCruz wins a federal court stay on an injunction against their encampment in a city park. The emergency injunction was cobbled together in a secret city council session and the evidence regarding alleged health and safety issues presented in a closed door court session. That "evidence" is now due to meet the harsh spotlight of a federal court.
However the Santa Cruz #Occupation's Information center on the court house steps nearby is still under threat with sheriffs coming by all night to deliver notices of violation of the state's Penal Code 647(e) which seems to make it illegal to sleep or rest ANYWHERE in the state if one is not 'lodged' ie. welcome. Much of the wording of that law seems to have been 'cribbed' from an 1800s Indiana freed slave travel control law.
So... #OccupySantaCruz Responds with a "Notice" of their own:
For the last week or two, Santa Cruz county sheriffs have arrived nightly at around midnight, with bright lights and video cameras, to hand out these notices on the courthouse steps. The flyers threaten us with arrest and criminal prosecution under questionable 647(e) lodging statute that ostensibly abridges our right to continue political protest after dark. They then typically return in the wee hours of the morning to issue citations and make arrests, and take our tents, sleeping bags, backpacks, protest signs, and other belongings.Personally, I'm still waiting for a response from the city of Santa Cruz that looks like this:
Last night, Santa Cruz occupiers repelled these interlopers by issuing their own notice of “Request of Cease Activity” to the bewildered troop of sheriff’s deputies. While the spoof notices were of equally dubious legal merit as the sheriffs’ own, the occupiers did find the role reversal to be quite empowering. Instead of passively receiving the threats of a body seeking to see us disappear, it restored much cheer to the sleep-robbed protesters to assert that our moral right to peaceful and justice-seeking political protest easily trumps an obscure lodging statute.
As none of the sheriffs would willingly take a flyer from us, we recited the notice to them using the human microphone call-and-response as they retreated to the county building. In our notice, we invited the sheriffs to join the side of the 99% in our attempt to create a better world for all.OCCUPY OF SANTA CRUZ
THIS LAND IS OWNED BY NOBODY. YOU DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION FROM THE CREATOR TO DESTROY A PEACEABLE AND CREATIVE COMMUNITY OF PEOPLE WHO GATHER TO IMPROVE SOCIETY FOR ALL. WE HAVE ERECTED THESE TENTS, POP-UPS, EASY-UPS, AND THIS FINE OCCUDOME (COVERED OR UNCOVERED) TO FACILITATE THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A SANTA CRUZ IMPROVED. ALL OF THESE STRCTURES MUST REMAIN INTACT OR YOU ARE IN DANGER OF BEING FOREVER ENSLAVED BY THE ONE PERCENT.
YOU ARE BEING REQUESTED TO CEASE ACTIVITY CONSTITUTING THE VIOLATION OF OUR INHERENT RIGHTS TO FREE SPEECH AND FREE ASSEMBLY. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL SUBJECT YOU TO A CONSCIENCE FOREVER PLAGUED BY IMMORAL ACTS, AND A WILL SMOTHERED BY BLIND SUBSERVIENCE.
THIS IS IN NO WAY MEANT TO INHIBIT YOUR RIGHT TO DISCARD YOUR BADGE AND GUN, COME BE WITH THE 99%, AND HAVE FUN IMPROVING THE WORLD. [More]
«o» President Obama is in Australia and Global Hegemony IS on his mind. While no one was looking the Chinese not only dramatically modernized their navy, they've increased the size of their fleets five times as well. So the US is planning on basing it's resupply at already existing Australian bases along the North Shore of Australia and we're also intending to move 150 Marines onto those Australian bases for training. In four or five years the Pentagon intends to garrison 2500 - 3000 troops there, as well as run fleet deployment operations for the Pacific.
«o» In Washington, the Secret Service has found a bullet and a mark on the bulletproof glass at the White House. They have also found an abandoned AK47 in the area. There are no suspects yet.
«o» They DO know where the money went (War...) - While the US has been in the process trying to reduce it's national debt by $1.2 trillion dollars, the soon-to-be $15 trillion dollar national debt has increased by $400 billion dollars since the creation of the all-but-useless "CatFood Commission".
