City of Cleveland passes emergency vote to support OWS
“Recognizing and supporting the principles of the Occupy Movement and the peaceful and lawful exercise of the First Amendment as a cherished and fundamental right in the effort to seek solutions for economically distressed Americans at the federal,state and local levels; committing to work with the Jackson administration to take steps to minimize economic insecurity and destructive disparities in the City of Cleveland; and requesting our County, State and U.S. elected leaders generate solutions for economically distressed Americans.”
This is the exact productive direction in which the movement is heading, working a local level to create massive national and international change. We need the support of cities and city councils, especially to make statements like this that protect the movement’s right to protest peacefully without being brutalized. Great job, Cleveland!
