Talk about this Meetup

    what does everybody think about this attempt to ban us from the steps at the arches, despite a legal opinion saying we're within our rights? Never when I've been there has anybody ever blocked the gates. And I've never seen even 2 dozen people there at any time. this is bull. The chief of campus police and the univ. president say they are going to mess with us anyway.

    They banned me from the Athens grp when it looked like some were interested in occupying. They have complete control in this town. However...

    I'm proud that since Saturday 190 people have seen the truth on Vimeo:

    Peaceful resistance without resistance? Business as usual. An information booth manned by two is not an occupation, it is not resistance. Its a manageable and easily dismissed, easily controlled, example of a minor annoyance.

    Yesterday was a wonderful day of joining together. It's refreshing to see all the active young people joining in and carrying this movement. I'll be back Saturday to help.
    Peace, Love and Tree Hugs

      This event begins Thursday morning at 8:00 it ends when people feel like going home, and then it starts back up the next day. The point is to be a continuous presence.
