INSIDE THE WALL STREET PROTEST
In the upcoming weeks or months, as the protests expand nationally, we will be reporting information which contradicts that which mass media are reporting.
Although we generally oppose lawbreaking, corporate media assume protesters must ask for a permit before they can protest, and that the approval must often be given by those against whom the protest takes place.
At LUV News we read the First amendment differently than do corporate media or our corrupt courts. We believe it means the people have the right to peaceably assemble and do not have to ask for permission from those against whom they are protesting.
If the person against whom the protest is directed may deny a permit, then there is no possibility of a peaceful protest, and we don’t think the Founders intended only meaningless words.
We will not support violence or property damage, but when it happens will not assume this is being done by protesters, since there is a long history of government planting people in protests to commit acts of lawbreaking in order to “justify” ensuing police brutality.
We would encourage police to take the side of the protesters, who are on the same side. The ruling Forces of Greed will take police pensions, medical care, and cut their pay if they get half a chance to transfer that money to transnational investors and transnational corporations that don’t give a damn about this country or its people. We would remind police of the sigh of relief among democracy lovers all over the world when Mubarak’s police refused to bust heads in Egypt, and we invite American police to join the revolution, supporting peaceful protest, as did most of Mubarak’s police and military.
As protests break out around the nation, we think this could be America’s last chance to move toward social justice, peace, a clean environment and the other things polling clearly shows the public embrace, without violence, and we are clearly opposed to violence.
But at LUV News we are with Mark Twain, who said “I am always on the side of the revolutionists, because there never was a revolution unless there were some oppressive and intolerable conditions against which to revolute.”
