#OccupyHarrisonburg and #S17 – a Week-Long Celebration!Posted: September 22, 2012
Wow! What a week! We celebrated, protested, visualized, vocalized, were arrested, accused, empowered and inspired here at OHB for the year celebration of #OWS #S17.
-Dave and Paulette talked with WHSV about where we’ve been and where Occupy Harrisonburg and the greater Occupy is going.
-Paulette spoke with WMRA radio about the issues and Occupy’s role in re-envisioning.
-MEANWHILE our very own James Van Orden joined the OWS crowd in New York for protests and was promptly arrested.
Here are PM’s Facebook and Twitter postings:
#S17 #OccupyHarrisonburg’s JVO arrested approx 5:30PM – released approx 9:30. He’s shaken but fine – going back to Brooklyn right now. He was walking on the sidewalk, a cop told him to stand against the wall. He did. Another cop came along and arrested him for obstructing pedestrian traffic. Hearing in December. I saw this Tweet right around the time he was arrested and wondered if it was him. First arrest. (pm)
Here is the UStream of JVO’s arrest. Go to timecode 4:04.
Thanks all, for a dynamic week. We are the people. We are United. And this Occupation is NOT LEAVING!
