Occupy Philly evicted last night

It’s really overkill that they used mounted police to push people out. Those horses are pretty intimidating, and bystanders are frequently hurt. I don’t really know what’s happening to the encampment, whether they’re relocating. I know I saw some of the homeless people displaced earlier this week camping under the I-95 overpass in Port Richmond.

And isn’t it interested that it happened at the exact same time Occupy L.A. was evicted? “I like to think they were following our lead,” Police Commissioner Ramsey said.

  1. There’s an old saying that goes something like this, ” Once we start living inside your head, you’ve lost.” The OWS movement has gotten inside the heads of the 1% and its political functionaries. The 1% is feverishly trying to figure out how to destroy an amorphous and leaderless movement that is slowly and effectively shredding its legitimacy by remaining Peaceful. Guess who wins this war?

  2. I hope you’re right, Im.
    Meanwhile, the powers-that-be are steadily cracking down by clearing out multiple encampments in a coordinated way, and the weather is getting steadily more severe.
    I hope these kids can hold out.
