(Take that, democracy! – OPD)
At five o’clock this morning, Occupy Oakland met up with some heavy-handed security tactics. Arrests, beatings, tear gas, smoke bombs, flash grenades and rubber bullets were used by police to disperse peaceful protesters trying to engage in free speech.
Once again, the world’s emerging police state reveals its ugly face. The people have legitimate reasons to be unhappy, but if they try to say anything about it, they will be bitch-slapped by the establishment.
All the more reason to take to the streets right now. Why wait until the act of protesting can get you shot?
