Occupy Little Rock to protest new Obama Campaign Headquarters

March 27, 2012 in News

At 5p.m. today OLR will be at 201 Broadway in NLR protesting the opening of President Obama’s campaign headquarters. We invite the public to join us and send a message to the President about his recent policies concerning the freedom of the people to protest and exercise their free speech rights {H.R.347}.

It is very important to understand that if this activity was taking place next year, under the new law because it is a place where Secret Service is involved, you cannot protest. Lest you be jailed and charged with a felony just for holding up signs on a public sidewalk!!

Slowly but surely your rights as American citizens are being taken away. As a citizen of this country, YOU MUST stand up and be counted and let your voice be heard. Participation in a country like ours is a must !! Just voting every 4 years is not gonna get it done!! The politicians, and the corporations that buy and sell them, are counting on the fact that you as citizens will sit home and do nothing but watch “Dancing With The Stars”. This only lets them get away with spending your tax money in a way that is totally irresponsible and wasteful.

Stand UP and be counted. We ARE the 99% !!!!!

                                            ALLEGED ARREST AT OCCUPY SITE
It was reported in many media outlets that an Occupier, William Kelley, was arrested at the protest site in Little Rock.

William Kelley, a member of Occupy Little Rock, was detained in the United States Post Office Parking lot next door to the

OLR site. He was not arrested at OLR. Video surveillance shows otherwise.
This alledged incident involving the arrest of Mr. Kelley does not involve and is not related to the occupy movement. This
occurred prior to Mr. Kelley joining OLR. We are awaiting further developments concerning this incident. He has been a valued
and trusted member of Occupy Little Rock. We support his constitutional rights, and due process.
