Hoping to kick this feeling like shit business.. It’s too bad they don’t make a tea to combat lack of motivation.. maybe they do?? …Also, I’m kinda missing my black eye. I think it made me look like more of a bad ass, maybe I should pit it up more at shows..

Reports from ground indicate ticketing to anyone who pulls up to drop donations, arrests of people who do not stay moving on the sidewalk. The notice to remove personal belongings was given again this morning. We need people on site ASAP. Put out a call. Also, we still need donations, so maybe people can park and walk things to site. PUT OUT A CALL!
Gang - I have intel from a source within the police department that OD is being cleaned out permanently. I believe him. I’m near the staging area right now and the wagons are moving in.

“Take a walk through any big city. Do you see anything that needs improvement? There are huge amounts of work to be done, and lots of idle hands. People would be delighted to do the work, but the economic system is such a catastrophe it can’t put them to work.
The country’s awash in capital. Corporations have so much money they don’t know what to do with it - it’s coming out of their ears. There’s no scarcity in funds - these aren’t “lean and mean” times. That’s just a fraud.”—
Noam Chomsky in an interview with David Barsamian. From the book The Common Good.
One thing I would add to this: Not only would idle hands be delighted to do the work, but also the countless people performing useless operations that just keep the wheel of profit turning; all the while there are tons of things that need to be done, and are much more fulfilling to perform.
