Gov. of Colorado and Mayor of Denver: Stop the Occupy Denver Arrests
The #occupyeverywhere protests have attracted thousands of supporters in Denver, Colorado but Governor Hickenlooper has indefinitely closed the park where the action takes place. People have been arrested for participating in the strategy of occupation and the modest infrastructure built on community donations was destroyed by the police. We do not support the arrests and we will not support John Hickenlooper or Denver Mayor Michael Hancock if the arrests continue. If the people's strategy is occupation, their First Amendment rights should be honored, they should have a safe space to demonstrate, and an injunction against the no camping law should be installed.
The whole world is watching.
