The problrms facing the U.S. today stem from two primary sources that have formed a relationship of convenience. Both GOVERNMENT and CORPORATE AMERICA working in conjunction with one another are responsible for the dire state of the U.S. and in many instances, world economies, and neither is doing anything to fix it.
City Hall and the surrounding Civic Center are strategic locations for many reasons, we are on the front doorstep of government, albeit city government, it is located in the heart of the city and it is within a few short blocks of an area downtown know as Banker's Hill where several large banks have either corporate headquarters of regional branches.
The issue was discussed at numerous meetings and voted on two meetings ago. It is a done deal and we are moving ahead according to plan. I would encourage anyone that is not happy with the decision to find alternative sights to stage a similar protest.
As to the location being right across the street from downtown police headquarters, this is a PEACEFUL demonstration and nobody involved as any intention of breaking any laws. We are a wide cross section of Americans of all ethnicities, ages, and diverse political leanings that have come together to demonstrate their abject displeasure with the way both Government and corporqte America have formed an aliance that is destroying this country and thie futures of it's citizens and the futures of their children. We are excersizing our rights to stage peaceful protest and we are adamant in our attempt to find REAL solutions.
