Martial Law a buzz in Berkeley
Today two more Apache Military helicopters with a third, flew low over Berkeley.
Around 2pm on February 28th over the Farmers Market in Downtown Berkeley two Apache helicopters flew low over the city. An ominous sign that the powers at be are getting the local population used to seeing the military in the skies of Berkeley. This is the third visit in only 10 days time. Hostile behavior by any standard, and yet few seem willing to talk about it.
It's as if the entire local had already been desensitized to such displays,
as if the move to martial law itself were taken as a "fait accompli".
It's time we realize what's coming down the tubes. The signs on this occasion
may not be "on the wall"; instead they're in the skies, live and in living color.
So why the denial? Best confront the challenge and unite while we can.
