Photos: OccupyDC removed from McPherson Square
Went to McPherson Square today. Got a selection of photos from both before and after the OccupyDC group was evicted from the camp. Craziest Occupy-type-thing I’ve ever witnessed in person. Was able to get surprisingly close and got some interesting photos and videos, including a six-minute video from right when the Occupiers were kicked out of the park, which we’ll have up soon. (Side note: To the guy sitting outside of the Cosi around 6 p.m. talking on your phone about how much of a kick you were getting watching the “hippies” get kicked out of the camp: Consider yourself officially called out.) Anyway, enjoy these photos. We’ll have more stuff later.
Tens of thousands take to the streets today in Moscow to protest alleged vote rigging by Vladimir Putin.
People CRAMMED on the UC Davis quad this afternoon and listened to the chancellor apologize for the police crackdown last week:
I am here to apologize. I feel horrible for what happened on Friday. If you think you don’t want to be students in a university like we had on Friday, I am just telling you, I don’t want to be the chancellor of the university we had on Friday. [someone yells, “then resign!”] Our university has to be better than it is. And it needs all of the community to come together to do that. We need to work together. And I know you may not believe anything I am telling you today, and you don’t have to, it is my responsibility to earn your trust.
