The city of Boston has decided to shut down Occupy Boston’s second camp as of tonight. Dewey Square, the original site, may also be shut down. PLEASE call Mayor Tom Menino at (617) 635-6500 and tell him to reconsider moving this peaceful occupation.
Spread the word, whether you’re in Boston or not.
My name is Kelly Schomburg, I’m the girl with the red hair in these pictures. I was protesting at the Occupy Wall Street march yesterday when I and several other women were sprayed with mace and subsequently arrested. Many have already seen the video, which has been spreading like wildfire over twitter, Facebook, tumblr, and other video feeds, along with hundreds of other photos and videos. This is my recount of what happened.
This is important. Read this and realize that the police too often aren’t on your side.
Kelly Schomburg: hero.
