Statement Concerning May 1st Events in Cleveland

May 1, 2012 – Cleveland – While the persons arrested Monday evening by the FBI have participated in Occupy Cleveland events, they were in no way representing or acting on behalf of Occupy Cleveland. Occupy Cleveland has affirmed the principles of non-violence since its inception on October 6, 2011.

Occupy Cleveland has spoken out and worked against violence in all its forms, including:

  • Wars and occupations
  • Economic violence of financial inequality, unemployment, debt, and foreclosure
  • Social violence of racism, sexism and homophobia
  • Environmental violence of global warming and fracking

Occupy Cleveland believes the only way to respond to a violent federal and corporate state is through active non-violence.

It is unfortunate that this occurred on the eve of May Day, the day the Occupy movement and workers around the world have taken to the streets, demanding justice. What has happened in no way discredits the issue and the non-violent methods of Occupy Cleveland and the Occupy movement worldwide.

Info tent removed

May 3, 2012–On the orders of the office of the Mayor of Cleveland, members of the department of Parks and Recreation came to Public Square in the middle of the night and took down the tent that we have occupied continuously for the past seven months. The tent was not destroyed.

Occupier Jacob Darling, who is on the scene, states, “The removal of this tent in NO WAY diminishes the commitment to a better world or the determination of Occupy Cleveland to bring it about with the love we have in our hearts for the movement.”

Occupy Cleveland will continue its peaceful presence on the Tom Johnson Quadrant of Public Square.

Working Group Meetings


“The practice of patience guards us against losing our presence of mind. It enables us to remain undisturbed, even when the situation is really difficult. It gives us a certain amount of inner peace, which allows us some self-control, so that we can choose to respond to situations in an appropriate and compassionate manner, rather than being driven by our disturbing emotions.”

~ His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Happy Arbor Day!

Arbor Day is Friday, April 27 this year. I personally plan to go out and hug a tree today. Or more. Why not? I say, embrace the label!

In honor of the trees, Grandma and I bought memberships to Holden Arboretum in Kirtland this past week. For those who haven’t heard of it, it’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen in Northeast Ohio. Today and this weekend you can enjoy FREE ADMISSION all weekend! One of the major exhibits, opening today, is called “Vanishing Acts: Trees Under Threat.” It’s really a misnomer because we are going to prevent the loss of these species, but what the Arboretum is saying is that some trees have been harmed, and they are providing an opportunity to learn more about the issue and help in the actions to save our planet’s trees.

We’ve also ordered some tree seedlings from the Arbor Day Foundation and I plan on integrating them into my life in a very interwoven way. I’m giving some to my mom and some to my aunt, and am looking for anyone else who might want some trees as well.

Working Group Meetings


“Warm-heartedness reinforces our self-confidence – giving us not a blind confidence, but a sense of confidence based on reason. When you have that you can act transparently, with nothing to hide! Likewise, if you are honest, the community will trust you. Trust brings friendship, as a result of which you can always feel happy. Whether you look to the right or the left, you will always be able to smile.”

~ His Holiness the Dalai Lama

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now.”

~ Chinese Proverb

“For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.”

~ Martin Luther

Solidarity March on Wednesday, April 25 for Bradley Manning

Bradley Manning allegedly gave a video of a U.S. helicopter that attacked and killed eleven Iraqi people (civilians) to Wikileaks. The video shows particularly heinous crime, although war in general is a heinous crime.

The standard definition of patriotism as has been proclaimed by the educational system of this country is that being a patriot is to be aligned with this country’s ideals. The ideals of this country are not to kill people in other countries, and particularly not civilians. Therefore, Bradley Manning is a patriot because he cares about the welfare of people.

We invite you to join other patriots on May 5 at 5 p.m. for a march starting in Public Square if this fits in with your schedule and energy level that day.

What does Occupy do?

An activist recently came up with a nice summary: “Essentially we’re working on minimizing the influence of big corporations over our political system. Locally we’re working to strengthen our community through foreclosure prevention and strengthening our community’s social infrastructure.”

Many in the movement would like to help solve every issue but of course we are focusing on where we can be most effective, locally, nationally, and worldwide. But for those who aren’t yet familiar with the gist of the movement, the issue of wealth disparity/corporate influence has been a big one that we’ve been working on solving from the start. Many are also involved in the environmental, peace, and human rights movements in some form or another.

Concensus on adopting Chicago principles

On Friday Mar. 23 we adopted the Chicago Principles:

  • Our solidarity will be based on respect for a political diversity within the struggle for social, economic and environmental justice. As individuals and groups, we may choose to engage in a diversity of tactics and plans of action but are committed to treating each other with respect and working towards a common goal of peace and justice.
  • As we plan our actions and tactics, we will take care to maintain appropriate separations of time and space between divergent tactics.
  • We oppose any state repression of dissent, including surveillance, infiltration, disruption, limiting our action to “free speech zones,” and violence, or attempts to divide our movement through the conscious creation of divisions regarding tactics, organization, strategies, and alliances.
  • Any debates or criticisms will stay internal to the movement, avoiding any public or media denunciations of fellow activists and events.
  • Friendly amendment: we understand that it does not override any principles on which we had previously achieved consensus. The proposer specified that this means that Occupy Cleveland is still a strictly non-violent movement.

HeartFest in the works

We’ve had a number of meetings to help make HeartFest a success. People are taking on responsibilities to bottomline food vendors, cleanup, and many other activities. Donations are welcome! Stay tuned for info coming soon on our HeartFest page on the occupycleveland.com website.

Current needs & haves

Happy 420 Day, Happy Earth Day

In honor of the need to stop the criminalization of marijuana and promote its many therapeutic benefits including helping cure some kinds of cancer, I bid you Happy 420 Day today, Friday, April 20. What’s 420? Those not in the know can read this article on 420 & cannibis culture on Wikipedia.

Happy Earth Day to the Earth this Sunday, April 22. One option for local terrestrials is to visit the Earthfest at the Cleveland Zoo. Ride in from Public Square with RTA and get something free–either your bus fare or fare to the zoo. Kinda uncertain to me. But one thing that’s not uncertain is that revering the Earth and living more attuned to its needs is one of the most important things, and so that makes Earth Day a great holiday to celebrate. Wiccans might be interested in doing some kind of ritual on this day to tie in to the collective awareness.

Chicago Bail Fund

This fund will assist those arrested in Chicago while protesting the war-machine of NATO, economic injustice, and related issues. It has been set up by Occupy Chicago, who will administer the funds with the help of its fiscal sponsors, the Crossroads Fund and 8th Day Center for Justice. All donations are tax-deductible. Info

“I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.”

~ Frank Lloyd Wright

“I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?”

~ Willie Nelson

“The wealth of the nation is its air, water, soil, forests, minerals, rivers, lakes, oceans, scenic beauty, wildlife habitats and biodiversity… that’s all there is. That’s the whole economy. That’s where all the economic activity and jobs come from. These biological systems are the sustaining wealth of the world.”

~ Gaylord Nelson

What does Occupy do?

An activist recently came up with a nice summary: “Essentially we’re working on minimizing the influence of big corporations over our political system. Locally we’re working to strengthen our community through foreclosure prevention and strengthening our community’s social infrastructure.”

Many in the movement would like to help solve every issue but of course we are focusing on where we can be most effective, locally, nationally, and worldwide. But for those who aren’t yet familiar with the gist of the movement, the issue of wealth disparity/corporate influence has been a big one that we’ve been working on solving from the start. Many are also involved in the environmental, peace, and human rights movements in some form or another.

Concensus on adopting Chicago principles

On Friday Mar. 23 we adopted the Chicago Principles:

  • Our solidarity will be based on respect for a political diversity within the struggle for social, economic and environmental justice. As individuals and groups, we may choose to engage in a diversity of tactics and plans of action but are committed to treating each other with respect and working towards a common goal of peace and justice.
  • As we plan our actions and tactics, we will take care to maintain appropriate separations of time and space between divergent tactics.
  • We oppose any state repression of dissent, including surveillance, infiltration, disruption, limiting our action to “free speech zones,” and violence, or attempts to divide our movement through the conscious creation of divisions regarding tactics, organization, strategies, and alliances.
  • Any debates or criticisms will stay internal to the movement, avoiding any public or media denunciations of fellow activists and events.
  • Friendly amendment: we understand that it does not override any principles on which we had previously achieved consensus. The proposer specified that this means that Occupy Cleveland is still a strictly non-violent movement.

HeartFest in the works

We’ve had a number of meetings to help make HeartFest a success. People are taking on responsibilities to bottomline food vendors, cleanup, and many other activities. Donations are welcome! Stay tuned for info coming soon on our HeartFest page on the occupycleveland.com website.
