' Occupy Wall Street campaign went national, a San Antonio based contingent manifested. Social Justice leaders within the Bexar County are were skeptical of the 'leaderless' crowds. For years Social Justice scholars have studied historical protests
. A leaderless movement? Could a fledgling group of dissenters in SA survive without infrastructure? And why hasn't the park dwelling political independents
, and environmentalists
reached out to local movement builders working on immigration, human rights, economic justice, women's rights, and prison justice?
A good friend of mine donates her time and money all year long to help local community groups. As an award winning graphic designer she really doesn't have a ton of time to give these days. The Occupy Wall Street message really resonates with her as a business owner. She gives a shit. Like so many, she joined one of the Occupy San Antonio Facebook groups to ask a simple question. Why did the Occupy San Antonio General Assembly apply for a DBA (doing-business-as) trade name?
The question she posed, and the discussion that followed, was not welcomed.
Here are some screen shots of the discussion.
In the end, the thread was deleted [censored] around 3AM.
while it appeared the thread had been deleted at 3 am, it is in fact still on the OccupySa wall, and growing. I attribute this to Facebook being wonky...the entire thread that could be captured is posted below.
