Occupy the Gulf, Monday Dec. 12


In solidarity with Occupy Oakland, Occupy San Diego, Occupy LA, Occupy Portland, Occupy Tacoma, Occupy Seattle and other movements along the west coast of the United States that will shut down ports in their cities on December 12, the General Assembly of Dallas hereby declares:

On December 12, 2011, Occupy Dallas will assemble in Houston, TX.

The following message is from Occupy Oakland:

On December 12, the occupy movements in different cities will stage mass mobilizations to march on the ports, create community pickets, and effectively shutdown the hubs of commerce, in the same fashion that Occupy Oakland shut down the Port of Oakland on November 2nd, the day of our general strike. The Oakland Port Shutdown was a historic and effective action, and the memory of that night on the port lives in the hearts of people across Oakland and around the country.


In Houston, we will mobilize and stage a mass march by integrating Occupy Houston, Occupy Austin, Occupy San Marco, Occupy San Antonio, Occupy Now and Occupy Texas.

We have made attempts at local demonstrations in an effort to spread awareness of the economic injustices affecting the 99%. These peaceful assemblies have been organized with the aim of petitioning our government for a redress of our grievances. On a national level, the response to our protest has often included excessive force and unnecessary violence perpetrated by police departments, with thousands of citizens unlawfully arrested.

Occupy Dallas would like to urge other movements in Texas and the surrounding states that wish to participate in the Occupy the Gulf Coast action to join with Occupy Houston before December 12.

2. Meh.
Just a freeper troll, more than likely. Their time spent here doing stuff like that tells you all you need to know about the quality of their lives. A gnat briefly around my face made more impact. The lint pills I picked off my sweater this morning were more profound.

Gnats and lint have a slight bit of purpose and meaning, however insignificant and momentarily bothersome they may be. Internet trolls mean considerably less than that. In fact they only have any meaning whatsoever to the degree which you assign. If mathematicians hadn't invented negative integers, the rest of the world would have been compelled to do in order to assign a value of less than zero to Internet trolls.

Anyway, this action next Monday is going to be HUGE. If anybody reading this is coming to Houston for it, say so.

3. I would if I could.
Lately my back has been acting up again and any prolonged standing or walking is an exercise in pain.

Just before Turkey Day it took my 15 minutes just to stand up and get to my bed. I was shaking and sweating by the time I got there. As much as I hate to take any kind of pain relievers, I was real glad that I still had a couple of heavy duty opiates stashed.
