After Ticketing Occupy San Antonio for ‘Camping’, Police Settle Down for an On-Duty Nap

December 21, 2011, San Antonio — As you may know, the occupiers at Hemisfair Park have come under fire for allegedly violating a no camping ordinance. Even though the occupation is a twenty-four hour endeavor, falling asleep will quickly earn us a Park Police officer shining a light in our eyes, ticket book at the ready to deliver a costly citation. However, there seems to be quite a double standard. Last night our occupiers came across a police officer in his car in Hemisfair Park violating the no camping ordinance himself. He was fast asleep—so asleep, in fact, that the flash from our cameras did not wake him up. It took a fellow officer tapping his window with his flashlight to rouse him from his long winter’s nap. Of course, the officer did not recieve a citation for this dereliction of duty.

On the other hand, we do not wish to be overly harsh. The Park Police have long been overworked and underpaid. They are also part of the 99%, and part of the reason we protest. In that regard, we at Occupy San Antonio feel it necessary to bring attention to this very important issue. Park Police have been treated very unfairly by the city, and despite their current attitude of hostitlity toward our protest we still feel that had this officer been afforded the union coverage that is available to the SAPD this individual might not have been overworked to the point of needing to camp in a public space during his on duty hours.

#occupysanantonio is now being pressured by police. They have cut our power (as you’ll notice in the video), our water, denied us of blankets and rest, but we still remain at Hemisfair Park. In fact, not only do we remain, we have taken the tower. You can find us 24/7 at the Tower of Americas. :)

Occupy San Antonio Is Alive and Well in Hemisfair Park

December 18, 2011, San Antonio — To quote American writer, Mark Twain, “The rumors of our death are highly exaggerated”. We have not been ‘nudged’ from Hemisfair Park, nor budged in our conviction to occupy all day, every day,  in order to call attention to our grievances.

Quite the contrary. We have rejected the area that the police have tried to force us into, where they have denied us amenities that have always been available to the public by cutting off our power and water supply. We have answered them by deciding instead  to move our location in the park to the Tower of Americas, where we will be enthusiastically greeting convention goers and respected visitors to our iconic Tower and engaging them with information and discussion about the 99%.

We have no plans to cease our occupy. The public can find us 24/7. Look for the Tower of Americas in Hemisfair Park, where we will always be ready to speak to the good people living in and visiting our great city of San Antonio.

#occupy Wake Up! It's about to get real!!! →

Your government sees YOU as the enemy, and is gearing up to legally detain you without trial.

While nearly all Americans head to family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, the Senate is gearing up for a vote on Monday or Tuesday that goes to the very heart of who we are as Americans. The Senate will be voting on a bill that will direct American military resources not at an enemy shooting at our military in a war zone, but at American citizens and other civilians far from any battlefield — even people in the United States itself.”
