Courthouse Steps Now Free Speech-Free at Night; SCPD Threats Downtown; Offices Close
by Robert Norse
I interviewed Abbi and Camille after my radio show earlier tonight in front of the County Building where they walked back and forth shivering in the cold, but determined to assert their right to assemble in public with grievances in front of a public building. Half a dozen Occupy Santa Cruz activists stood nearby (but on the narrow sidewalk generally, in fear of citation or arrest if they joined Abbi and Camille for any length of time on the concrete area in front of the courthouse). No news media, no liberal protest. Just deepening surrender of basic civil rights. Abbi posted an audio (actually a video, but one that can't really be seen--though it can be heard) on Occupy Santa Cruz (facebook). I reprint it here with my comments.
