This Is What Democrazy Looks Like
Occupy held a “National Gathering” (called NatGat or #NatGat on Twitter) over the 4th of July in Philadelphia. Arrests, mess and various acts of hilarity ensued. No tally yet on the cost to deal with this mess or the official number of arrests – although one source says a total of 26. As of July 21, there were 7,379 arrests listed. Some photos are here.
