Hong Kong Protesters forced to hand over Pizza boxes and tarpaulin as sleeping equipment

The Western media continues to ignore this heroic struggle.  Don’t want to rock the corporate boat. It’s inconvenient for big business to have this “interruption” in business as usual. The people should take interest. Their struggle is our struggle. Freedom for the 99% is under attack everywhere. And if we don’t fight back slavery awaits:

When is a pizza box a pillow? Or an umbrella a ‘structure’? In Parliament Square Occupy Democracy protesters have spent their seventh night sleeping on the ground on top of piles of newspapers. According to the 2011 Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act, the local authority for the City of Westminster has the power to confiscate items that count as sleeping equipment or a structure, so mattresses and tents are forbidden.

Cuomo, Astorino debate trade charges of racism, lying and breaking the law

They’re both right:

On a stage together for the first and only time in this campaign, Democrat Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and Republican Rob Astorino each went for the other’s throat, with charges of racism, lying and breaking the law.

At a debate hosted by a Buffalo public television station, the two traded blows over taxes, housing, abortion, race and a now-defunct anti-corruption commission, throwing out words such as “disgrace,” “despicable” and “racist.” Two minor-party candidates were also part of the debate but steered clear of the personal jabs.

That might explain why Hillary Clinton has endorsed Andrew Cuomo. They have a lot in common.

City Councilman Randomly Asks Muslim-American Constituent If She Will Condemn Sharia Law

A city councilman in Green Bay, Wisconsin is under fire for responding to a question about local buses from a Muslim-American woman by quizzing her about whether or not she condemns Islamic terrorism.

Heba Mohammad, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and founder of the school’s Muslim Student Association (MSA), recently learned that her city’s bus system would not offer free travel on Election Day. Concerned, she sent an email to all 12 of Green Bay’s aldermen earlier this week asking if the city could provide complimentary transpiration to help poorer voters get to the polls.
