The following were the words spoken by Reverend Billy (in the video above) that might have gotten him up to a year in jail time, if we do not act.

We are in the midst of a mass extinction at this time. I ask you to think of your own children. I am the father of a three year old and I’m worried about the kind of world that my daughter will inherit. Please protect life, protect the earth. Take your money out of J.P. Morgan Chase or work inside the bank to change the values system of this bank. It is the largest bank in the United States by assets, but it is also the top bank in the world for financing industrial projects which poison the atmosphere with co2 emissions.

Who caused Hurricane Sandy?

Chase bank did, if anybody did. Rise up against the corporations that are poisoning the atmosphere. It’s up to you and to me, only we can do it.

Somebody give me a “Change-a-lujah”!
Somebody give me a “Life-a-lujah”!
Somebody give me a “Life-a-lujah”!

Right Hallelujah

Are you alright? Is no one angry?

You are angry, in the white shirt, I can tell.

Sign Rev. Billy’s petition, and check him out on stage in NYC while he is still a free man.

or write a nice email to the Honorable Cy Vance, Jr. to let him know what an upstanding citizen the Reverend is, and how he lights up culture and society with his presence.

10 Arrests in 87 Minutes: The Anatomy of the NYPD’s Protest Dispersal Process

On the eve of the second anniversary of the Occupy movement, two video activists, have released a 10 minute short film providing perhaps the most detailed civilian account to date of the NYPD’s process of crowd dispersion during mass mobilizations. The video, shot on September 17th, 2012, during Occupy Wall Street’s first anniversary celebration action, details 10 arrests that took place over the span of 87 minutes. While at first glance many of the individual arrests appear to be arbitrary, careful analysis from the videographers illustrates a larger picture wherein the NYPD’s actions are calculated and designed to derail the protestors ability to effectively assemble.

This video is a powerful resource for activists of all stripes in New York City. Please watch it, share it, carefully examine the NYPD’s process in it, and use it to inoculate yourself from their coordinated attempts to stifle your first amendment protections.“On the eve of the second anniversary of OWS it bears remembering that the occupations didn’t simply fizzle and dissipate,” says Paul Sullivan, who videotaped the police response, “this video, shot last year on the morning of the first anniversary, not only reminds us of how difficult it is to protest when the NYPD is determined to shut you down, but also how the NYPD continues to supress civil liberties in order to stamp out the movement.”
