|Subject:||SPAM-MED: [september17discuss] urgent update from your brothers and sisters in Freedom Plaza|
Brothers, sisters, comrades,
Freedom Plaza, DC. Wed. Oct. 19. The Park Service came by again
today. They are having lots of talks about what to do with us.
Getting pressure from above to close us down. They are being told by
the administration that there are laws that need to be enforced. When
we pushed on a timeline he said his guess was one to two weeks. No
decision has been made but his comments had an air of inevitability
about them. He said he would give us warning, hand out notices etc.
before acting. The Park Service has been straight with us all along.
So we have a situation so far of mutual respect. We told them from the
beginning our intention was to stay, permit or not. We intend also to
be straight with the Park Service as we have from the start - let them
know we intend to try and stay as that has always been our intention,
that we understand their position and respect it as we expect them to
respect ours. And that whatever happens, we will do our utmost to
insure that our side will abide by the principles of nonviolent
resistance. They are in a tough spot as are we. No hard feelings and
no animosity towards the Park Service. Respect. But we need to defend
our turf. We have some time to alert people so we can get the numbers
up on the day they come to evict. We need to try and recreate in DC
the solidarity and resistance that happened in NYC (myself and a
number of us from Freedom Plaza were there) on the day the police had
been instructed to move the people out for cleaning (sic). We will
keep you all posted as to developments.
