How to run afoul of Occupy San Antonio, just ask too many questions 

After Adbusters' 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, anarchists, socialists, libertarians, conservatives, 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. UPDATED/EDIT: 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.
