They could not chase us out legally, so they’re finally just going to change the laws/rules to try and get rid of us *by declaration of emergency no less*. But it’s not a Completely done deal *yet*. Columbus City Council has before it a change in the law preventing groups from taking up any space for “non-commercial events” for more than 72 hours *more indication of how being “commercial (i.e. a corporation) gets you more freedom(s)/rights than being a human citizen*.
