Occupy Monday 6/16/14 Arrests

Hey Hey! Ho Ho! Arrested at Moral Monday yo!

Before we get into the list of the arrests, catch up on what went on by reading yesterday’s article: Occupy Monday 6/16/14 Edition: Workers ‘Rights’.

The Moral Monday Union Pals

Yesterday’s Moral Occupy Monday was packed with unions. Of note in attendance was The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE). The attendance of AFGE likely sent chills up the legs of the NC Association of Educators and their protest arm, Organize2020, who desperately want to become a full-fledged union and ultimately kill NC public schools in the process. Take a gander at the “About” page at AFGE to see why; BFF’s with the AFL-CIO etc. Related read: Occupy Monday Agenda Would Cost $7 almost $10 Billion To Fund

Even with the influx of out-of-state union organizers there, attendance was sparse again.

Even Trumka got in on the Occupy act yesterday by tweeting the AFL-CIO’s video promoting civil disobedience:

Not to be left out, the SEIU stood in solidarity with their Occupy Monday brothers and sisters.

The Arrestees & What The Local Media Won’t Tell You About Them

Here are the local Raleigh stories (below) which don’t really name any of the arrestees. ABC11 puts the number at ‘nearly 20’. In fact, it was 20. Nineteen arrested for 2nd degree trespass and one arrested for possession of pot. Continue reading

#MeltdownMonday – June 3rd Edition Arrests

Yesterday was the 4th installment of “Moral Mondays” organized by the NAACP in front of the NC General Assembly. I’ve retitled them Meltdown Mondays, which is exactly what they are. No costumes this time, but I have high hopes for the next one. Highlights included Melissa Harris Perry showing up in order to apply her own brand of creepy shame, a couple of social justice speeches, chanting, singing and of course, more arrests. Without arrests and a big hoopla surrounding it, the media and people get bored and tune out. This is how Occupy did it, but they eventually wore out their welcome and people’s patience. ABC11 hits the nail on the head in the middle of their report:

Protesters have been seeking to call attention to the rightward shift of the state legislature, which was dominated for decades by moderate Democrats.

Yep. Elections have consequences.
“Mega Moral Monday”

The turnout was larger than last time, even with a week off, police said 1,000 and protesters said 1,600. Usually a break like that kills momentum and crowds are smaller, so what gives? What gives is the various Lefty organizations coordinating behind the scenes to pump up the numbers. Via watching the streaming online video, watching Twitter and noting the signage, the following groups were there:

Occupy Raleigh
NC Student Power Union
Occupy NCSU
Planned Parenthood
NC Justice Center

That probably isn’t all of them either. I added SEIU to the list since they clearly where there (ABC11), emphasis added: Continue reading

What #MayDay2013 Protests Looked Like In Raleigh, NC

Looks like more proof I was right about NC Student Power Union being one of many offshoots of Occupy Raleigh, or at bare minimum comrades in arms. They all celebrated May Day together in downtown Raleigh. It wasn’t as dramatic as Seattle, but it wasn’t totally boring either.

Thank you to those with the NCSPU (Student Power Union) who engaged in civil disobedience yesterday as the fight… fb.me/2Vts2XVfV
