3 arrested at #OccupyAtlanta, cops everywhere right now
Edited on Sat Nov-05-11 11:49 PM by Fire Walk With Me
as protesters engage in an unpermitted "march".

One cop drove (a motorbike?) into the crowd (they did this in Denver), "ran someone over", then arrested the victim. Detail to follow.

Edit: That's an awful lot of cops lined up...

1. Oinkers....
they don't want Northerners coming there for the winter. Guess I'll hit Austin, TX.

We don't forgive. We don't forget. We are here to stay.

5. You got the watch?
Good I am falling asleep.

Not surprised though. I expect more of this crap.

6. I can stay up at least a half-hour. The other night really took it out of me.
We need to focus very clearly upon the good things #Occupy is doing, what it's like in a camp, etc., because the constant police attacks are moving the focus away from the good things.

7. I think I got my limit tonight
I know next week I need to do my weekly. With of course report from front lines.

Cheap notebook and pencils today. Should get some for them. I got some used books I might take down there.

10. Get your rest, plenty to do tomorrow! I'd like to see more positive threads
to offset the strain of all of this ugliness.

Peace!

8. The park/camp has been cleared, people are being made to stick to the sidewalks
and seemingly cannot be in the street. One passing van honked in solidarity.

Commentator says 6-8 arrests, 3 from within the park.

11. "This is still our park, these are still our streets, this is still our city!"
"Ain't no party like an #Occupy party..."

12. Livestream is off, protesters appear to be going to Denny's or something.

(Edit: pardon my flippancy, they have more guts than I do!)

They sounded determined to return tomorrow!
