MLK would have been at Occupy Wall Street
Tonight in DTLA police tried to instigate a riot by attacking and brutally arresting a woman, slamming her face into the concrete for drawing a chalk figure on the ground. The crowd was so affected they amassed into the street, the police began firing dispersal weapons. Corporate media lied about the sequence of events and a CBS reporter who did not know they were still live on mic/broadcast explained that his newsdesk was ‘disappointed’ the crowd dispersed so there wasn’t further altercation with police. STAY TUNED FOR COMMUNIQUE
I marched with tens of thousands of protesters yesterday in Montreal. In the second photo, I’m the one in the wearable tent. The People United, Will Never Be Defeated.
Crystal Sugar is Killing The American Dream
In an extremely under-reported story by the corporate MSM, Crystal Sugar workers have been locked out by the corporate overlords for months to try to bust the union. In the “right to work for less” state of North Dakota, since it’s a “lockout”, the workers aren’t even eligible for unemployment. Fuck everything about this.
While American corporate media has focused on yet another stale election between Wall Street-financed candidates, Occupy has been organizing something extraordinary: the first truly nationwide General Strike in U.S. history.
