Although the Occupy the Rose Parade action was not officially endorsed by Occupy Los Angeles or Pasadena General Assemblies, myself and thousands of others were more than happy at the opportunity to spread the message of the movement at the Rose Parade, an event that would be covered by mainstream and independent media alike. More importantly, however, was the fact that many people who have not been exposed to the message of the Occupy Wall Street movement would be in attendance, and would be able to see the unified, non-violent message that the movement stands for.
This is an informal request to anyone who was at art walk last night. As soon as I found out about the arrests of Sergio and Adam I contacted legal and began the quest for information. This is what I personally feel comfortable releasing after discussing it with PR and other members of the media committee, and legal committee.
Adam: Not Updated on charges as time of article.
Sergio: Being charged with Lynching, being held on 50K bond, awating arraignment.
We would like those who witnessed this event to put a written statement down, and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
The legal committee, and the NLG are already looking into the arrests. please pass on this info!
“The European Central Bank said the continent’s banks parked a record $590.72 billion overnight. That means those banks are unwilling take the risk of lending to each other in the short term, opting to earn low interest rates from the ECB instead.”
I have been occupying since October 1st 2011. Today is January 4th, and I sit here today feeling very uneasy. Just yesterday Global Revolution was arrested. They were arrested after being illegally evicted by the NYPD and the NYC housing authority.
“Nobody watching the corporate television coverage in Los Angeles or across the nation would be allowed to see the mock-ups of the U.S. Constitution, or decide for themselves how 'awesome' the Occupy Octopus was.”
Me da la impresión que la participación actual del pueblo latino en las protestas del Movimiento Ocupación en Los Angeles está bastante desproporcionada si se compara con el número tan alto que hay en la población general de hermanas y hermanos latinos en el sur de California.
Quisiera pensar que cuando busco noticias en los canales en español para ver si encuentro algún grupo unido en la protesta, la razón por la que no veo a nadie hablando del tema es porque no tengo la suerte de ver las noticias donde se escucha fuerte la voz de los hispanos.
