I believe our movement has to be exceptionally careful about violence. Having followed the livestream since day 1, I assume we are a nonviolent movement. Can we endorse and support such violence as the 'black blok' in Oakland? They are running a video of the smashing of a bank window on their site. Are they really a part of Occupy? I want to hold a Restorative Justice trial with them next week - due to a sense of personal injury. I went to Oakland earlier in the day and was shocked that they instigated a police response at the Traveler's Building later that night. I am thinking of calling a Restorative Justice session in Oakland next week http://www.nycga.net/groups/restorative-justice/.
