Latron Price, 37, an organizer of Occupy Atlanta, said Tuesday he believed the raid on Occupy Wall Street was a sign that the protests had struck a nerve.
“To see that happen in New York shows we’re on the right track,” he said. “These arrests will only strengthen the protests elsewhere.”
And of course, OWS #N17: follow The Other 99%’s awesome livestream — citizen journalists’ coverage of the movement in general (from NY to Oakland) marks a turning point in public access to the media and the truth, truly deserving of a Pulitzer.
While the national wave of evictions and police repression, and associated corporate media spin, may seem depressing, it is evidence that the power of the movement has become a force to be reckoned with, in accord with the widely tweeted quote attributed to Gandhi:
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
