38 peaceful protesters arrested last night at Occupy Austin. The city is trying to enforce nightly power-washes of City Hall (which is immaculately clean already, by the by) during one of the worst droughts in Texas’ history. Not only is it unnecessary, but it is shamefully wasteful. This is clearly a tactic and our Constitutional rights are being withheld and/or limited to a gross degree. Occupy Austin’s statement to the police can be read here: http://occupyaustin.org/2011/10/occupy-austin-statement-on-apd-city-hall-%E2%80%9Ccleanup%E2%80%9D/. Help spread the word!
