6. Yes, Occupy Fresno came over to protest and witness
the progressive community is small but they put all they have into combating injustice but it hard when it is against a raging river of neo-con controlled radio, and newspapers, and local TV. The neo-con con radio has even silenced the churches that in other areas would fight.

the Catholic Diosese does have a group trying to stop the city attackign the homeless but it is strong enough egainst the fundamentalist neo-cons and their supporters.

They need help from outside groups to give them support.

So now these people will be kicked to curb, no shelter, no community. I bet within one week they will have women who are found raped, dead, or missing. Fresno has gangs that are horrific and at least in the encampments there was some protection. Now they are out their on their own.
