A note to the “occupiers” at my school:
You don’t occupy anything. You have no permanent presence at the school, despite my pleas that you do so and my eagerness to help.
You have a table set up once a week. Other than that, you have a general assembly once a week. That’s good. However:
I’m at that school for over 12 hours a day for two out of the four major school days. The only time I’ve seen your presence is when a bunch of goons walked by me screaming and tackling each other while wearing Guy Fawkes masks.
And now you, who are supposed to be protesting budget hikes, are hosting an art show tomorrow on campus.
Where food will be served, music will be playing to enhance conversation, and the person with the best 99% art gets $500. Is it just me or does this make absolutely no sense?
If this sounds like a good time to you, or if you are one of the people organizing this: stop, change your methods, or take off your “Occupy” name tag. You are embarrassing everyone who is actually out there for a reason.
