Occupy Tucson back in business for Gem Show

Occupy Tucson has began the occupation of DeAnza park again. “By consensus of the General Assembly, with the courageous commitment of a… critical core of campers, the collaborative participation of the Brown Berets, under the watchful eyes of the Veterans for Peace fortified peacekeeping, we will demonstrate the power of peaceful assembly,” according to a Facebook posting.

Organizers say that the “police have been notified of our intent, the mainstream media is expected, Gem Show participants have been invited.” Members will be “putting up tents and sleeping in DeAnza Park,” on the corner of Speedway and Stone.

“The Tucson Police Department can continue wasting the tax-payers’ money chasing us out of the city parks,” said Mary DeCamp, “but we will continue to petition our broken government for redress to the social and political inequalities that have spawned this global movement.”

Dave Croteau, one of the Occupiers said, “We’ve planned teach-ins and around the clock activities this time,” said Croteau, “and we welcome the neighbors to come see what we’re about.” Doctress Neutopis will be featured.
