Reclaim the Streets!

Reclaim the Streets Berkeley is going down right now! (8 pm)
Reclaim the Streets Berkeley is going down right now. When I last left them (8pm), two people had just been seized and the rest were headed north on MLK. The groovy group of over a hundred people had music, outfits, chalk, etc. One person even spun fire to drum n' bass during a stationary period; college and ashby never looked better! Everywhere the group went, residents came out and smiled; some cheered. There were kids. The cop presence was intense. Dozens of officers. Foot patrol with riot helmets and batons, bike cops, motocycles, "parking meter" vehicles, patrol cars, and a paddy wagon. A helicopter was around. And then there were these clean, unmarked mini-vans full of cops with riot helmets. They followed to the rear of the protest/mobile party, out of sight from the large group, staying on perpendicular streets during times when the group was stationary.

Auto-dominated streets are space and mind control. The loss of the commons is continuing theft. Dancing and walking are rights.
