Uh, Where was the Civil Disobedience in LA?

by sam Saturday, Aug. 19, 2000 at 12:29 PM

What happened to the CD in LA? There were only a few choreographed sit downs, but no lock downs, no promised barring of corporate fund raisers.. Some of us are wondering why >almost everything was just permitted rallies. Why so congenial? Aren't we mad at the system?

This is not to attack organizers who worked long and hard, but Im just wondering what the goal of S2KLA was. Did we not want to shut them down? Or at least be so disruptive we couldn't be ignored?

If the cops had not over reacted a few times, we would not have even been in the mainstream news at all.

What happened to the methodology of Seattle, DC and Philly? I noticed only 2-3 unpermitted sit-downs and even some of those were done in cooperation with the police.

Given the LAPD's irrational behavior we would have had the media coup we desire with images of peoaceful protesters chanting and locking arms in an intersection being treated poorly by the cops. We would have been putting ourselves on the line for our beliefs, disrupting the cscripted DNC and exposing the true face of the police (without the bottle throwing).

LA is the last major protest event in America for at least a year or two. Why did we let it peter out?

I dont mean to sound so irked, ut I really would like to know what DAN's strategy was in going into this. I heard rumors about blockading corporate offices and Democrat fundraisers but saw none of that.

What happened? Did we win or lose? Was our goal just to have permitted amrches? Why?
