Houston Police officers are on site at Tranquility Park claiming once again that our tarps used to keep our belongings dry in the recent rain storm are tents and must be taken down. We need bodies at Tranquility Park immediately! Help us protect our lawful and non-violent demonstration! There are paddy wagons on site, and a raid is imminent! This is a call to anyone in the vicinity. We need your help!
Contact the city!
UPDATE: 3:20pm: Houston PD and the Coast Guard are inspecting our tarps. One man has been arrested.
UPDATE: 3:30pm: Houston PD has backed off, taking the tarps covering our tables and our electronics.
UPDATE: The police have left with some of our tarps. We’re holding an emergency general assembly, but we still need folks to come to our regular meeting tonight at 7pm in Tranquility Park. This is a critical point for all occupy movements, and we need your support!
