Greetings fellow Anon’s and Occupier’s, and all those in between…
While this has come to no surprise, the NATO protests are already reaching a boiling point. As tonight we have already witnessed the Chicago Police Dept sending out a request for two water cannons deployed on Michigan Avenue, which the protesters briefly were able to close of the street completely. Just a few moments ago I witnessed cops on horses seemingly all too content with the destiny that has turned their hearts cold, trampling over protesters trying to intimidate. And you know what I saw during this? Protesters locking arms and holding their ground. A few even had Anonymous masks’ on, a few were girls who looked like they belonged safely off on the sidelines bravely charging cops with shields and on horse. All the while the protesters are chanting “Take those animals off those horses”, drowning out any attempts by the Chicago police to get a word in.
What I saw tonight watching a bit of the protest on UStream was everyday, average people fighting back and finally refusing to stand down. The NATO Summit is being utilized in such a way, and I couldn’t have predicted it more accurately. On the video I saw Mother’s, teenagers, elderly, the anarchists, every sort of person I feel is symbolically represented.
This is not a time to have our differences divide us, this is a time we all need to come together and rally around our brother’s and sister’s bravely in the street’s of Chicago risking their lives to make the one voice they have heard. Imagine, if every single one of us has a voice, let us unite and show the violent Chicago police, and the government big brother tactic’s that we are not gonna take this.
We are hoping to be able to extend a helping hand in any operation brought forth by the violent police tactic’s being deployed on peaceful protesters. We are also considering leading the charge on a campaign but we have to weigh the pro’s and con’s at the moment.
So what your one voice can do is, share with everyone you know what’s presently going on in Chicago, Tweet celebrities on twitter with the #SolidarityWithChicago #FuckNATO #FTP hashtags and get it trending. Also keep watching the live feed’s, and spreading the live feed links all relevant places. Together, we the people, are gonna take the power back.
Changing <3’s and mind’s,
