|People's Park, Berkeley|
This is an emergency meeting for people who love the Park. Please leave personal grievances behind. We need the numbers.
This is a meeting about maintaining the future of the Park in the aftermath of recent events. People who identify as drug dealers have increased tensions and open hostilities towards those who identify as activists.
The police have chosen the side of those who identify as drug dealers, and are using wedge issues to push out the activists from the Park.
Because of the recent actions of a group of street youth who admit they were working with the UC Berkeley Police, the Tree Sit was shut down. Two street kids entered the tree in an attempt to extract the tree sitter by force. They later recanted their story, claiming they wanted to have a talk with the tree sitter - a talk strangely enough at 9PM in the pitch dark, not during the day with witnesses.
People's Park now has an attempted murder rap tainting it due to the actions of a group of street youth. The UC will use this fake attempted murder charge to make a case that the Park needs to be permanently shut down. This fake attempted murder story that haunts the Park will be used to further the destruction of the Park.
