It has been a long couple of weeks.. I have been camping with Occupy Philly since October 20th, and have felt like nothing was getting accomplished. Every single General Assembly meeting i have attended up to now has centered around the question of whether we stay at Dilworth Plaza, or move, or expand into two locations. I understand that this is an important question, but i felt that the message we came here to spread to the world has been diluted by this internal issue. I became a part of Occupy Philly to stand in solidarity with the worldwide Occupy movement. to change the big picture.
Apparently, according to some Occupy Philly folks, our Occupy is not confrontating our repression from the Mayor and Philly police well enough. No doubt many Philadelphians and people around the globe are repressed. But, Occupy Philly? It is not repressed, it is peaceful. Our City of Brotherly Love, enjoys a national spotlight, for a change. This is not at all cool, but dorky, even worthy of scorn, according to some here. Some want to lose this Ghandi vibe. What the hell did Ghandi ever do anyway?
A recent post here has implied that Occupy Philly is not quite up to snuff. Apparently we could be doing a lot better with our confrontation skills. Hmm. However, I am wondering, how is accepting a permit, then accepting another permit, with peaceful arrests indicative of repression here in Occupy Philadelphia? I do not doubt people are repressed, generally. But, with regard to OP, we are not repressed, we are peaceful. Apparently, this is not at all cool. Some say we need to toughen it up and emulate Oaklnad or NYC.
