I’ve been thinking about the movement lately because protesters will probably be kicked out of the Frank Ogawa Plaza in Oakland. There are sanitation issues and rat problems. Also, violence and grafitti. This is what the notice said:
“We believe that after 10 days, the City can no longer uphold public health and safety,” the notice said. “In recent days, camp conditions and occupants’ behavior have significantly deteriorated, and it is no longer manageable to maintain a public health and safety plan.”
This is what pisses me off. People can protest without being gross. Clean up after yourselves. Don’t tag the walls. Kick out the troublemakers. When I read about Occupy sites being trashed, I think, “It’s not doing anything for the “dirty hippie” stereotype.”
That’s the thing. There are so many people from all different backgrounds. If the occupiers would keep the places clean and police themselves, there wouldn’t be many negative incidents that the media can exploit.
Check out the different faces of the 99% in this advertisement for Occupy Wall Street. I found this at Dusty’s site, Leftwing Nutjob. I hope this gets shown on TV.
I support this movement and love that we “little people” are finally speaking out.
