Cops Clubbed & Sprayed OWS Protesters 10/5/2011

I had the live feed open in one of my windows, but I wasn't really paying attention to it.  All of a sudden, I noticed police clubbing protesters and spraying them with pepper spray.  Then the live feed died.


Sorry, I thought I was witnessing a LIVE event, but it happened two nights ago. Gotta love the protesters for singing softly while their friends are getting beaten.  Why isn't anyone talking about this?

Occupy Wall Street March Gets Massive Turnout; 28 Arrested in Police Crackdown

Cop_ows_web Labor unions and students joined the growing Occupy Wall Street movement in New York City on Wednesday in the largest march since the protest began 20 days ago. Tens of thousands marched from Foley Square to Zuccotti Park, renamed “Liberty Plaza,” the site of the protest encampment where hundreds have been sleeping since Sept. 17. The march was peaceful ,but police later beat a handful of protesters with batons after they toppled a police barricade in an attempt to march down Wall Street. Police say a total of 28 people were arrested. We hear from eyewitnesses to an altercation between police and protesters at Wall Street.

This was uploaded to Youtube on Sept. 24th, so it's a description of a different day.  I'm posting this because I have such admiration for the OWS folks like her who are able to maintain their peace when chaos ensues all around them. 

We really are evolving, transcending, and ascending as a people!
