Chalk Walk Organizers Call for a Day of Action for Rights and Against State Violence
LOS ANGELES – Wednesday night, at Occupy Los Angeles’ General Assembly, participants came to consensus to call a global day of action and solidarity, on August 9, 2012, to assert Freedom of Speech, Assembly, and Association and to celebrate the Human Spirit with Chalk.
Occupy LA released a solidarity call for protesters and communities that experience state violence, censorship, and repression throughout the World.
Right now we are in the midst of an information war. Mass media ignores us, and only covers what they are told to. Instead of seeing the truth behind the stories, you only see their twisted, PC, version of some kind of alternate reality. During protests the media has always skewed the perspective of the piece based on who is writing it, who is paying for it, and who the target audience is. Journalism is dead, as its all being turned into a production rather than just straight facts.
