Hey FireDogs. Occupy Tucson is back up again. This is the fourth encampment. Today will mark 2 weeks and two days. Already the tent camp at De Anza Park at Speedway and Stone has grown to 47 in number and perhaps 65 overnighters, we are reconnecting with the community in that way that isn’t possible to do without the community and energy that the tent camp brings to the protest. I will post in detail about all that is attendant to this development in the near future.

I am in Tucson, Arizona for the huge gem, mineral, fossil and precious stones and whatever else expos/shows, and to visit Occupy Tucson which is staging several anti-bank rallies this week. I love gems and minerals, geodes, agates, and fossils, but it kinda bums me out to see so much of Nature’s beauty churned for a buck.

Occupy Tucson during this brief interim has managed to hold two emergency General Assemblies, gather itself, and Occupy yet a third location in which to peaceably assemble and petition their government for the redress of grievances. This new location is also a public park, and this time there is also the added incentive of having been invited by the surrounding Home Owners Associations. This invitation was extended not solely based upon political solidarity, but even more so……..because Occupy Tucson is perceived as a “good neighbor” to have, one that will increase the overall safety of the neighborhood. Makes you proud doesn’t it? This despite constant propaganda from the MSM, and constant persecution by the PTB.

Joan was a little jacked when I caught up with her after her overnight incarceration, a little hyper still. After she had a chance to say hi to some friends and exchange some hugs, we sat underneath a tree in the park and had a quiet conversation. Turns out she had never been read her rights, which fits rather well with all else that is occurring in our nation. Neither had she been allowed a phone call to her attorney. In the morning she was arraigned via video conferencing, albeit the arraignment did not include a mention of what the charges were against her. The judge did manage to tell her when she would be required to appear before the court once again.

Here for you Firedogs is a copy of an email I sent earlier today to my dear friend wendydavis by way of letting you all know how the movement is progressing down in Tucson (I have expanded on the original email by way of utter laziness in place of an actual post). Truth be told……one of the Hispanic women at Occupy Tucson brought me a large bowl of Pozole (a SouthWest delicacy at holiday time, white corn, braised chicken, thin tomato based sauce, HOT, ladled over shredded cabbage spritzed with lime) along with the proper fixings, and I just want to get to that. First things first ya know?
