The action we organized on the 12th was pretty successful,
but more importantly I wanted to point out the fact that we didn't resort to selling out and paying for our first ammendment right. Some have told me that having an 'unpermitted' action is dangerous, and is an open invitation
for police harassment. Yet we gathered, had speakers, and marched around with hardly any police mobilization (only 1 arrest). The action itself did lack enormous numbers of people, but the energy level was high, and I think its damn
time that people see how ridiculous purchasing permits is. It is a waste of time, money, energy, and is about the most
counter-revolutionary thing I can think of. Although it seems kind of sappy, I'll quote craig's view on the whole permit process, "why would you pay the scum of the earth for your 1st ammendment rights?", pretty strait forward.
