Federal Judge Denies #Occupy St. Louis Permission to Continue Hobo Camp at Kiener Plaza
Yesterday, St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay notified the Occupy St. Louis that they had 24 hours to remove all structures from Kiener plaza in downtown St. Louis.
The hobos will have to find another place to duke it out.
In response the local occupy goons released this nonsensical statement today on their website:
Since October 1st, we have maintained a peaceful occupation in this public space, founded on the principle that large corporations have too much influence in the actions of our government. Mayor Slay and his Senior Staff have once again validated this by bowing to pressure from the Downtown Partnership of St Louis to restrict our First Amendment Rights to peaceably assemble.
Since its inception, Occupy St Louis has been a model of cooperation and non violence, and has made Freedom Square a safer, cleaner place.… We strongly – believe that our encampment is a valid form of political speech justified by the First Amendment. Additionally this precedent has been set in other occupied cities across the nation.
Occupy St Louis hopes that Mayor Slay realizes that our freedom to assemble is not limited to one space, but guaranteed to all people, in any public space, at any time. We believe that we are engaged in a vital attempt to restore the cornerstone of American ideals: equality, unity, and social mobility.
Talk about insanity! These nuts believe they can pitch a pup tent at any place at any time. They say it’s their free speech!
The protesters also called for violence against the police.
Tonight, a federal judge denied the Occupy St. Louis protesters permission to continue their illegal squatters camp in the middle of downtown.
UPDATE: The Occupy St. Louis nuts just called for a dance party.
