Solidarity Sunday–Occupy across the country

by Larry Geller

The picture on this web page (and on others Google can find) looks like a war zone.

Yesterday, Occupy Oakland moved to convert a vacant building into a community center to provide education, medical, and housing services for the 99%.  Police responded with tear gas, rubber bullets, beanbag rounds and mass arrests.  The State has compounded its policy of callous indifference with a ruthless display of violent repression.  The Occupy movement will respond, as we have always responded: with an overwhelming show of collective resistance.  Today, we take to the streets.  Across the country, we will demonstrate our resolve to overcome repression, and to continue to build a better world grounded in love and solidarity for one another.

[New York City General Assembly, Solidarity with Oakland, 1/29/2012]

Requiring those Captcha codes at least temporarily, in the hopes that it quells the flood of comment spam I've been receiving.
