Inauguration Day Protest Blocks Streets in Santa Cruz

For several hours, community members blocked the intersection of Pacific Avenue and Water Street at the Town Clock in downtown Santa Cruz as part of a series of interrelated Inauguration Day events to protest the presidency of Donald Trump on January 20.

Organized as a general strike, students from multiple Santa Cruz area schools staged walk outs to join the demonstration. Students and faculty members at the University of California Santa Cruz participated in a UC system-wide walkout, marching from campus to the downtown. Additionally, a march was held on Pacific Avenue, and later in the day activists constructed a large wall out of cardboard boxes that blocked Cooper Street.

When you '#protest' and the media reports how smooth it went, the police comment on how 'well-organized'/peaceful it was, you weren't protesting.

As the Wall Street Journal pointed out a few years ago in a series of articles...

What the rich fear the most is violence in the streets directed at them. Terrorize the rich.
http://auntieimperial.blogspot.com/2011/07/for-damn-good-reason-too-why-rich-fear.html

Start with your Senator. All of them are wealthy... Even Burn-E. The average net worth for the American White middle class is just a touch over $100k. Compare to your own Senator, then terrorize them. It gets the lactic acid flowing and tenderizes them so they're oh so tender when bar-b-cued.

Mmmm Mmmm good!
