"Occupy Riverside stands in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street as part of the leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions." ~ Occupy Riverside's Main Website
I am pissed!
Why are all the apparent white heterosexual men conducting most of the meetings?
If Occupy Riverside was first put together by womyn why aren't womyn visibly in the forefront?
If Occupy Riverside claims to be all inclusive, why when womyn speak are they most likely
to be interrupted in general assemblies?
Why is the historic and violent relationship of police against womyn/trans/queer of color dismissed when men say we must act civilly if arrested?
By the way are you informed of the well know reputation Riverside Police have of killing womyn of color?
Why was our proposition of including a Womyn of Color for Decolonizing Committee dismissed when it does not inquire much from other committees? Oh i am sorry, but is your ego threaten when a brown woman and a queer womin of color correct your politically insensitive rhetoric?
