IPR’s Ross Levin arrested at Occupy Wall Street protest

Comments from Ross Levin, a writer for IPR, on a previous post:

“I was there wearing a Green Party shirt, as well! You can see some photos of me online if you look around…”

“I’ve got some nice big brown curly hair. It’s a Green Party of Philadelphia shirt. I got arrested Saturday, so you might see some photos of that. It’s the only green shirt that says “Green” in the Green Party font that I saw.”

UPDATE: From the comments on this post:

Here’s a bit more info about it, and there’s an article coming out in my school paper about it. For now, I’ve told the story too many times in two days:

  1. what they view as excessive force and unfair treatment of minorities, including Muslims, the movement is also protesting against home foreclosures, high unemployment and the 2008 bailouts.

    Filmmaker Michael Moore and actress Susan Sarandon have stopped by the protesters’ camp, which is plastered with posters with anti-Wall Street slogans and has a kitchen and library, to offer their support.

    On Friday evening, more than 1,000 demonstrators, including representatives of labor organizations, held a peaceful march to police headquarters a few blocks north of City Hall to protest what they said was a heavy-handed police response the previous week.

    A week ago, police arrested about 80 members of Occupy Wall Street near the Union Square shopping district as the marchers swarmed onto oncoming traffic.

    Congratulations, if that’s what the occasion call for, and be careful in future about these “arrest” things. Always bring a condom, or two, and be discrete about who you do it with and how you go about it. The consequences will be less painful if you do.

    truer than most would like to admit ……

    courage is harder to come by when there seems to be options ………

    Better to get arrested now, when the consequences are still relatively minor, than to wait until the consequences are an automatic trip to the gulag, concentration camp, or firing squad.
