Occupy Atlanta and Kasim Reed cartoons

I never thought that I would end up well-known throughout Cobb County for standing my ground against hundreds of police on my Free Speech and Assembly rights.  But I did.

And I **still** cannot find that Channel 2 news clip people are telling me about! (o.O)

The City of Atlanta mayor’s office itself is being “occupied” by a mad man named Hakim Reed – a supposed Democrat – who ordered over a hundred police officers to go and crack down on the dissent in Troy Davis Park.  But I did not see him even try to reduce the muggings that happened just blocks away from hundreds of police officers.

Here is the start of a collection of cartoons on the Occupy Wall Street solidarity movement  in Atlanta, GA (Occupy Atlanta: the Website, on Twitter, and on FaceBook.)

WHO governs?!? WE govern!
Honestly, I am proud to say that a bunch of hippies OWNED the Mayor of Atlanta for nearly two weeks.  HA!

Why do you protest? <— people ask this often, and make fun of the answers.
I go and help out as often as I can because The People do not really HAVE a real forum where their grievances can be safely addressed, and acknowledged, and maybe acted upon.

Consider the Occupation movement a sort of “buffet table” where you can select the issue(s) you like and work with others there to try and change things.

Try it out – come and ask us what you wish to know, and attend a few seminars (such as growing your own food or learning more about the Foreclosure mess).

CHEERS!  (more cartoons to be posted as they are made)
