Add comment on:Jailed for Marching in Oakland: What it means for you and your children.
Beth Seligman, J.D.
We were jailed for marching. Some were jailed for walking home from the grocery store. We were denied medication, sleep, blankets, time, sanitation, and given bologne sandwiches for breakfast lunch and dinner even though many are vegetarians or could not eat that meat for religious reasons. Some were not booked for 40 hours, meaning we did not exist and some are still in jail and need bail money. We were put in overcrowded concrete rooms with bright flourescent light and no place to lay down and left there for days. We could have been at Guantanamo, and this could have been you, your child, your sister or your brother. The 1% is consolidating its power against the dissent because their power and wealth is unsustainable. They would rather jail you then make any change. This is what the NDAA is about and we need everyone to stand up now.
