What is left of the 5000+ volumn People's Library -- (dial-up warning)
Edited on Wed Nov-16-11 03:40 PM by Hell Hath No Fury
From the library site:

One of our librarians Zach came up with a partial list of what was taken (see below) and its looking like only a few boxes of books and our (destroyed) laptops and one chair were at Sanitation. Our people on the ground report that A lot is destroyed . . . more may (or may not) be coming out of their giant trashpile at back of building.But its obvious to me that by recklessly throwing the contents of the park into dumpsters, the NYPD and DSNY working under Bloombergs orders destroyed what we built. And that their claim that the library was safely stored was a lie.

2. Once upon a time, there was this quaint old document
It said, among other things, that no person should be deprived of property without due process of law or have his property taken for public use without just compensation.

It was a rather nice old document, and I kind of liked it. Spelled out a lot of things about what it meant to live in the United States of America. I think public officials even swore an oath about protecting, preserving and defending it upon taking office, so it was kind of a big fucking deal back in the day. I wonder what ever happened to it?

10. The pic is from the OWS site ---
so I have no control over it. I seriously doubt OWS would have a problem with your use of the pic -- it is an incredible shot.

They're being screwed over by the 1% as well but in perhaps in even a more nefarious manner.

14. Books represent knowledge, the enemy of authoritarians everywhere.
Of course the palace guard went for the books first.

15. When you live like a homeless person, your stuff gets trashed just like that of the homeless
OWS needs a home. It has money and the ability to raise more.

OWS should lease some office space.
