I fell asleep at home for a bunch of hours after I showered and I woke up with a sinus infection and the little lady is starting with a wicked cough from her viral-induced athsma. Hitting the doctor today I think. :(

Students of recent history know that the social movements that resulted in women’s suffrage, civil rights, and labor laws were not championed by the majority of Americans. Instead, we have often seen that through the action of a small portion, gathered together, dedicated in the representation of the legitimate needs of the many, the course of abuse and denial of justice is changed.

New Haven is evicting the camp tomorrow at noon, an emergency court injuction is filed and being heard tomorrow at 10AM... NH will probably wait until the judge rules after both sides present their arguments. Hope there is no violence :plain:

Hopefully cooler heads will prevail and keep those ready "for battle" in check and things don't turn ugly if/when the evictions start :heart:

"The fundamental difference between this and squatters is that a squat is basically just a roof over your head. The encampment on the green is a form of Free Speech. Each of the tents are covered in messages from the occupants, the camp is surrounded in signs. The whole thing is a symbolic metaphor, a reference to the hooverville shanty towns of america's past as well. Granted some homeless folks from the area saw an opportunity to get fed and clothed for no return and latched on to the movement but largely this is a group of activists taking up a symbolic occupation in a public space as a reminder that these problems do not fade unless they are fixed.

The problems still exist so the occupants feel their job is not finished and are committed to staying until it is done.

Public perception of the occupants is so fucked thanks in large part to big media's spin. I can personally speak from experience when I say 80% of Occupy New Haven are gainfully employed, taxpaying, non-homeless citizens."

the last group standing .. important to keep the message out there. We really need to project a better front than just a homeless camp, it's great that so many people showed up.

What the hell is going on down there? :( :heart:



Occupy New Haven protest on Green coming apart at the seams

NEW HAVEN — While several attorneys are fighting to keep the Occupy New Haven encampment on the Green, several members of the group said the Occupy movement has started to collapse.

Dozens of people make up Occupy New Haven — some who pitched a tent on the upper Green on Oct. 15, 2011, the day the movement started. But names and faces have changed since the movement began, so much so that a handful of the protesters said the cluster of tents on the Green is basically a homeless encampment now.

Occupier Matt Osborne said that, at this point, the local movement consists of “20 percent infiltrators, 20 percent tourists, 20 percent aberrant people, 20 percent unemployed people working for change and 20 percent semi-professional, professional organizers.”

“There is always tension in a community and this is a new community,” he said. “We know we are making mistakes, but we’re learning.”


Jimmy Ferrara, another protester, said it’s not just about tension within the group, the real issue is that the people in the group have changed.

“The Occupy movement is basically gone,” he said. “People are drinking and starting problems. There is a lot of drug abuse and a lot of the big bosses left.”

They interviewed two people that are not involved, Jen was getting piss ass drunk (pissing herself) and causing fights back in November and she was asked to leave which she did.. The paper got its sound bites from 2 people not invovled and they ran with it.

Thanks, I figured there was more to it.

Hope all the "good" folk aren't being forced out by the riff raff.

Stay strong
