I am saddened and angered at the situation in Zuccotti Park. Saddened and angered at Bloomberg, the bully, who sent NYPD thugs to sneak into the tent villages under cover of darkness like raccoons raiding a trash can. Saddened and angered about the fact that peaceful protestors were beaten, gassed, cuffed. Saddened and angered about the fact that the 5,000-volume donation-based library, so lovingly managed by a team of volunteer librarians, was thrown into a dumpster. Saddened and angered that we are living in a police state.
Jarrod Shanahan read this piece last week at the Death Panel Press OWS reading. He added a comment on this morning's events. Read the excellent text here. And most importantly, continue to think of ways to (re)occupy your life.
