Occupy Wall Street activists Jen Waller and Tom Hintze talk about their tour and workshops across the country at the various Occupy's in the last few months in a meeting they had at activist attorney Ed Frey's house Friday night.
"With the upsurge in activism in this country we’ve seen an increase in political repression (violent mass arrests, the entrapment of the Cleveland 5 and NATO 5, recent FBI raids on activists’ homes, etc), which has opened many new activists’ eyes to just how brutal the government can be when people call out its hypocrisies and allegiance to the 1%. Meanwhile, the ever-present abuse of poor communities of color by local police and the FBI (most recently in Anaheim) remain largely unchallenged by everyone but those who are affected by it.
"...with all the bad press law enforcement has gotten in the recent months, there is an opportunity now to raise awareness about historical and ongoing political repression and racist policing and to share strategies for fighting them. So are traveling city to city, hosting roundtable discussions, speaking in bookstores and activist spaces, and running legal trainings for activists, all with a focus on anti-oppression and radical care.
Local Occupy activists and SC-11 supporters discuss the local repression of Occupy and ways of resisting.
