OWS interview day 12

I don't remember doing this interview and had no idea it existed online.  I found it while hunting links to recreate my In The Press page after the destruction of the previous version of this site. 

Thank You PFail Blog.  I would have thanked you earlier, but I just watched it a minute ago.  ;~)

Keith McHenry on Feeding People in Disaster Situations

Keith McHenry on Feeding People in Disaster SituationsPanel Presentation from the
North American Anarchist Studies Network Conference

In 1980, Keith and seven friends started the first Food Not Bombs chapter in Cambridge, Massachusets. At first more of a street performance than a protest, the group provided entertainment and vegetarian meals in Harvard Square and the Boston Commons after making deliveries of uncooked food to most of the housing projects and shelters in the area. After eight years of serving free food in New England, Keith moved to San Francisco where he started a second Food Not Bombs group. He was one of nine volunteers arrested for sharing food and literature at Golden Gate Park on August 15, 1988. In the following years, Keith was arrested over 100 times for serving free food in city parks and spent over 500 nights in jail. He faced 25 years to life in prison under the California Three Strikes Law but in 1995, Amnesty International and the United Nations Human Rights Commission brought about his release.

#S17 #OWS Birthday Party

One year ago a small group of predominantly Anarchists sparked a horizontally organized movement to level the playing field in the game of Corporations -vs- The People of the United States.  Today we celebrated our success and contemplated our future.  We licked old wounds and created new ones.  We turned a critical eye to the process that has guided us and acknowledged it's short comings so that our second year of existence will be one of effectiveness even if it means dropping the verb.  To Occupy.

#OWS S15 Pedestrian Bloc

500 or more Occupy revelers march from Washington Square Park to their former home in Zucotti to kick off the Occupied Anniversary Party. 26 were arrested mostly through snatch and grab terrorist tactics.  Those arrested had done nothing wrong, were walking peacefully on the sidewalk with their friends. Squads of terrorists pushed through the peaceful crowd to man handle and steal people.
