Thanks for making these, Top Criminal Justice Degrees…
On June 24th, 2012 David Tat Chow and those of us renting rooms on Full Circle Farm attempted to collect the property we still had on the farm during the time schedule with Anthony Vasquez, but cancelled at the last minute. This was after 12 days without being able to arrange an appointment, and only three days left to legally collect our property without consequences. Police arrived, informed us we were trespassing, but then allowed us to collect our property for ten more minutes. Given that participants of Occupy Sacramento (and me, creator of Wiki World Order) have been helping occupy this farm and were involved with this incident, we documented it far better than the police.

David’s bruise from punch:
That night, the beautiful main house of the farm, which Tat grew up in for almost 40 years, burnt to the ground…

I truly cherished my months living and participating on Full Circle Farm, and I can’t wait to be back on a farm in a similar situation, growing organic, hopefully non-GMO fruits, veggies, and medicines. I did lose roughly two thirds of my material possessions in the fire, but it was all still worth it. I recommend everyone try living on a farm for some amount of time, as we must become far closer to the food we eat. It’s also much less risky when not trying to Occupy land being taken by US Bank and friends. Thank you so much for these experiences, Tat, and I’m so sorry for your losses. Much Love!

NO ONE should be punished for what they put into their own bodies, absent harm to others.
In 2009, over 2 MILLION Americans were incarcerated, with a total of over 7 MILLION under control of the U.S. ‘corrections’ system. (this and next 3 stats are not just from marijuana)
THIS IS ALL UNACCEPTABLE.
“Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man.” -Francis L. Young, DEA Chief Administrative Law Judge
Our bodies have specific cannabinoid receptors to receive active chemicals like those in marijuana.
No need for a couch or TV. We can also FOCUS on novel solutions to practical problems, and other times inspire to CREATE fun things like music and fractals.
“Our” drug laws do FAR more harm than drugs or drug users.

Philadelphia, July 1, 2012, Day 2. The Gathering’s first major march, focused on the looming student debt bubble. While the police largely allowed us to temporarily take over various streets, they block us at the end of a bridge we attempted to cross. We eventually decide to turn around to avoid risking arrest, but hopefully educated the police a bit.

A few thoughts for my brothers and sisters from Wiki World Order…
I know it’s tough to march pass the Federal Reserve without protesting it. It and the New World Order ARE tied in with almost every issue, but the public cannot easily connect those dots, and our messaging is already difficult enough. Please get more clever if you want to bring these layers to a single-issue march.
Our system IS one of indentured servitude. Education IS a right, BUT we do not need indoctrination programs to get it. We should not need expensive certificates of completion to find ways to contribute to our world. We do not need money to educate ourselves. Autodidacticism and critical thinking is all we need.

Philadelphia, June 30, 2012, Day 1. We have unexpected police interaction, forcing us to make a group decision on tactics to be used the first night. It was a bit of a bumpy start to the week, but we eventually decide we did not intend to have a major police confrontation yet.

ADVENTURE CAT: What’re you guys doin’ this weekend?
SIBLING CATS: Sleeping, DUH!
ADVENTURE CAT: Well did you hear what’s happening? May 31st through June 3rd?
SIBLING CATS: Meh, we are impressively comfortable.
ADVENTURE CAT: It’s Bilderberg 2012!
SIBLING CATS: Build-A-Bear?
ADVENTURE CAT: No
SIBLING CATS: Bild-err-What?
ADVENTURE CAT: The Bilderberg Group is an annual, unofficial, invitation-only conference of approximately 150 guests from North America and Western Europe, most of whom are people of influence. About one-third are from government and politics, and two-thirds from finance, industry, labour, education and communications. Meetings are closed to the public. (source: Wikipedia)
SIBLING CATS: Where’s the conference this year?
ADVENTURE CAT: It’s at the Westfields Marriot by Dulles Airport in Chantilly, Virginia. If my friend Morgan still lived in Washington DC, he would be there in half a heartbeat — half an hour actually — and beg everyone he knows in the area to PLEASE check it out.
SIBLING CATS: Sooo, why does this matter?..powerful people meet all the time.
ADVENTURE CAT: They sure do, but usually meetings this big are much more public and universally covered for at least a few news cycles. Think about how much media attention NATO summits get…or the Oscars, or NFL Drafts.
SIBLING CATS: OH yea! Who won the Oscars?
ADVENTURE CAT: WHO CARES?! But guess who attended the Bilderberg Conference last year?… (show list of attendees)
SIBLING CATS: WOW! What a collection of some of the biggest public players in the world.
ADVENTURE CAT: No joke! Talk about the 1%…Bilderberg is the 0.00000002%.
SIBLING CATS: Why haven’t we heard of this before?!
ADVENTURE CAT: Participants agree to keep details spoken at the meetings from the public, so these world leaders can speak more frankly. So the mainstream media has hardly ever mentioned it until the past few years with knowledge spreading across the internet.
SIBLING CATS: So if these meetings are behind closed doors, and invite-only, why are you going?
ADVENTURE CAT: TO PROTEST!
SIBLING CATS: Huh?
ADVENTURE CAT: Top politicians and businessmen are discussing plans for our world without transparency and therefore accountability. If they have our collective best interest in mind, what do they have to hide?…or why can’t they speak honestly to us like adults?
SIBLING CATS: Good points.
MOMMA CAT: That’s just a silly conspiracy theory.
ADVENTURE CAT: You’re a conspiracy theory.
Actually, the phrase “conspiracy theory” is mostly just used to get most people to disregard the alternative narrative being discussed. Where conspire is defined as ‘to act in harmony toward a common end,’ this is more conspiracy fact.
SIBLING CATS: Yea! And the Bilderberg Group seems to be the world’s most public steering committee. The attendees can both help manifest the plans toward their common ends, as well as take advantage of knowing what this powerful crowd hopes will happen in the next year.
ADVENTURE CAT: That sure does seems to be the case, and other organizations like the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission spend more of the year hashing out more concrete policy details, plans, and drafting legislation.
MOMMA CAT: What if you’re put on some terrorist watch list or NDAA-ed out of your relative freedom.
ADVENTURE CAT: This is no time to let such fears beat us, mom. If we don’t have at least a voice, we don’t have anything. And there is WAY too much going on ‘in our name’ to be passive. Anyone with half a whisker of my curiousity should seriously check it out.
SIBLING CATS: Occupy Bilderberg!
ADVENTURE CAT: Occupy Bilderberg!
SIBLING CATS: Occupy Bilderberg!
ADVENTURE CAT: Occupy Bilderberg!
SIBLING CATS: Occupy Bilderberg!
OK, LET’S GO!..

MORE DETAILS on our PERFORMERS:
FREEDOM MOVEMENT featuring KNEEL and the STRAWMEN is a local Sacramento post hip hop group dedicated to personal freedom and financial liberation of the economically oppressed. They have performed for many community events in Sacramento focused on social justice. Influences include T-Reazy, DUC, Benner, and William Hung. Although several members are dedicated Occupy Sacramento organizers this will be their first performance at an Occupy Event. Much credit goes to Kim Sloan, Co-Producer and one of two lead organizers on the April 22nd Project for recommending and obtaining their participation. Like all our guest performers they prove that showcasing talent and an entertaining program are best achieved through a truly diverse offering of music styles. Our youngest performers on stage also invite you to check out their music tracks on FB:
JOE STEVENS, SPECIAL GUEST OF THE OCCUPY
Joe Stevens, performing solo on April 22nd, is a Sacramento local now taking a break from his band of many years, Coyote Grace. He has toured from coast to coast and recorded an impressive number of CDs, mixing bluegrass, blues, soul, and southern twang into a unique sound that hovers just beyond the edge of familiar. His touring schedule is very generous to small audiences in small towns. Whether solo for Occupy Sac or with his band on tour, he combines virtuoso craft as a musician, inspirational and introspective song writing, with a humble, warm, charming and humorous stage presence. Mr. Stevens is also seriously funny on stage in between songs and knows how to break the ice with some gentle, humble humor.
Website for Coyote Grace, featuring Joe Stevens and Ingrid Elizabeth
Joe w/Coyote Grace performs DaughterSon at Marilyn’s on K, January 2011.
Joe performs Ghost Boy solo:
“Talented and devoted musicians, Joe and Ingrid move forward into the mainstream public eye with personal integrity and a musical sound all their own. In honoring who they are, they refuse to be told who or what they should be as people. It is that candor, combined with impressive musical craftsmanship, that transcends boundaries and speaks to a wide audience.”
“There’s a yearning, freight-train-hopping, propulsive energy to many of (Coyote Grace)’s songs that suggests not only an indie-band road tour, but the road to one’s true identity, a destination on a map still being written. These youthful travelers depend on the kindness of strangers and of lovers, and on their journey they’ve experienced enough joy and heartbreak to last a lifetime (…) If wholeness and grace are forms of political power, Stevens and Elizabeth are wielding it with quiet intensity, in a growing community of kindred spirits. An army of lovers cannot fail.”

Reviews: Evan Greer
“Evan Greer is an eloquent and energetic writer. (S)he reminds me of Phil Ochs.” –Howard Zinn, historian and author of A People’s History of the United States
“Evan Greer continues to write inspiring folk music in the tradition of the great protest singers. ‘Never Surrender’ contains an urgency and earnestness that is uniquely her’s…and (s)he’s a heck of a guitar player. I suspect that songs like ‘Ya Basta!’ and ‘Picketline Song’ will be heard at the barricades for years to come.”–Tom Morello, guitarist of Rage Against the Machine
“Evan feeds off the energy of the crowd, putting some of the punk back into the sound with a raw and passionate performance. Being in the crowd at an acoustic show where the kids genuinely care about the message and dance and sing along with fists in the air in a crowded basement or open performance space, is a whole different type of folk show from the typical coffee house style. It’s refreshingly alive and a striking contrast to sitting down and listening to someone singing about their feelings.”–Urban Folk, NYC
“Current folk is sometimes stereotyped as sappy, weak, and boring. Despite this contemporary betrayal, the Riot Folk collective champions the genre’s radical roots … Behind all the exclamation points and proclamations of anarchy, lies a genuine sense of revolution. The Riot Folk Collective may just re-establish folk music as a revolutionary staple.” –VenusZine
“Phenomenal activist folk!” –Pacifica Radio KPFA-FM
“Examples of modern day singers who use their music to make political points.” –MSNBC, Today.com
On the morning of March 21, a few members of Occupy Sacramento setup the information table along with two tents. After about two hours, a friendly neighborhood police officer asked us to take down the tents even though they were just props (and propping up signs).
Even though Occupy Sacramento had at least several tents setup throughout the day for the first couple of months, we did not push it much and did not think the citation and court date(s) were worth it this time.
