Felony Charges Against Occupy Houston Protestors—When Will We Realize That The Freedom Of All People Is Connected?

When will all people realize this most basic fact?

Here is the Occupy Houston response to the indictments.

  1. This is bad news. I was actually at the event. That tent scared the crap out of all of us.
    Thought we had beat the rap on this one when Judge Campbell through out the charges.
