The “Occupy” crowd is assembling in Philadelphia through July 4th for a “national gathering” and, despite the usual claims of non-violence and tolerance, a wave of video and social media has revealed quite the opposite.
On the movement’s website, the event is described:
From June 30th to July 4th, the Occupy movement will convene the Occupy National Gathering in the vicinity of Philadelphia’s Independence Mall for a week of direct actions, movement building and the creation of a vision for a democratic future. The National Gathering will kick off with a massive march with Healthcare-Now! in solidarity with their fight for the right to health. On July 5th we will conclude by joining Guitarmy for a 99 mile march from Philadelphia to Wall Street in Lower Manhattan. [Emphasis added]
