Let's take the statement regarding the National Defense Authorization Act passed by the GA out on the street to the People.
We'll make some flyers using the statement as text and we'll make up another big mounted blown up version for the public to sign. We'll probably have people lined up to sign it! We should also have a bullhorn or PA to read the statement out loud to the public (or we could People's Mic it). We should also make ups some signs ("STOP INDEFINITE DETENTION" ect...)
We'll also live stream and video the action for posting on YouTube and try to spread this virally all over the country.
NEEDED FOR THIS ACTION:
--Teams of 4 people
--2 flyer distributors/bullhorn
--1 person managing the blow up for public to sign
--1 person on video camera
WE NEED A BARE MINIMUM OF 4 PEOPLE TO PULL THIS OFF. PLEASE RSVP AND LET US KNOW WHAT YOU CAN DO.
If we have enough people we can make multiple teams and deploy to other locations.
Come on, let's saddle up and take it to the streets! Are you down?
Note: Parking at the Hollywood and Vine structure is very cheap with validation. Just buy a cup of coffee and get your ticket validated.
Occupy Los Angeles Rejects the National Defense Authorization Act
Occupy Los Angeles demands that President Obama veto the National Defense Authorization Act. The legislation includes provisions which destroy the Constitutional rights of Habeas Corpus and Due Process. American citizens and all people everywhere have the inalienable right to contest their imprisonment and to a civilian trial by jury. We reject this and all legislation which abridges these rights as well as the false belief that doing so will make the nation more secure. The bill also contains sanctions against the oil industry and monetary systems of Iran which are clear precursors to a military attack. Additionally, the bill funds wars that the majority of Americans oppose. These endless, senseless wars only serve the Corporatist interests of the 1% and we oppose this and all legislation which enables and perpetuates them.
