Put in other terms, no exploiting class has ever left the stage of history without being pushed.

Charges were dropped against all but two of the 45 arrested. Just another classic example of the cops fabricating felony charges against non-violent protesters, thus trampling their rights of free speech and assembly. Contact me for more details. Peace. MF.
