Two Protests at City Hall Monday and Tuesday

by Robert Norse
The Occupy Santa Cruz General Assembly consensed today to gather at 2:30 PM at the Water St. side of the courthouse to march to City Hall to confront City Council and City Manager Martin Bernal at 3 PM. The group will deliver the General Assembly's response to the City's recent harassment action against OSC and those camping there. And presumably offer an opportunity for the hostile bureaucrats there to air their concerns. A second speak-out is slated for 5 PM Tuesday at the Coonerty Council's mini-Oral Communications period at City Hall.

The General Assembly's response today is at .

Felix Krull remains in jail on $500 bail for the crime of falling asleep at a protest in the wee hours of the morning over the weekend and presenting "inadequate ID". He will be arraigned either tomorrow (Monday) or Tuesday at 8:!5 AM, according to attorney Ed Frey.

The half dozen 647e misdemeanor harassment "lodging" citations issued against peaceful demonstrators over the weekend are likely to cost the County $50,000-$100,000 in jury trials. And an undisclosed amount of a successful civil lawsuits follow.

With 50-100 tents in the camp, and at least an equal number of supporters in the community, the costs of phony prosecutions is likely to escalate exponentially.

On the upside, tablers reported no new examples of "deputocracy" arrests or tickets last night. The skeleton of geodesic dome was rising at mid-afternoon in front of the county building. And the campground, with the exception of a few strident outbursts was reportedly quiet for the last few days.

Hopefully photojournalists Bradley and Alex will add their vision and commentary in the days ahead.
