It is clear that, reports in the mainstream media notwithstanding, the Occupy movement continues to grow. A Field Poll released last week showed that 58% of Californians agree with the underlying reasons for Occupy. Some of our encampments may be dormant for now, but Occupy certainly is not. We are continuing with vigils, other direct action, outreach efforts, capacity building, and planning for the future. Our spirits are strong, and our will is unbroken. We understand that there were a variety of expectations for our first meeting, and that many hoped we would have moved through the unity issues more quickly. Resolution_2011-12-3_signed_copy.

“Occupy Wall Street” Comes To Humboldt

Protest planned on top of HSU Homecoming this Saturday By Charles DouglasHumboldt Sentinel A two-week old protest against the political and economic dominance of Wall Street is spreading across the country and landing here in Humboldt County. On Oct. 1 at 3 p.m. on the University Center Quad in the heart of the Humboldt State University campus, an as-yet unorganized group of students and allies intends to set up camp right in the middle of Homecoming weekend — just before the HSU Lumberjack football team hosts Dixie State. Their intention, according to convenor Travis Turner, a Samoa-based advocacy journalist, is not to disrupt Homecoming, but to call attention to the common cause between those confronting the financier class nationally and the economic crisis faced by students in the California State University system. Travis Turner “I see inequality and greed in almost every facet of American life,” Turner stated. Occupy Wall Street movement coming to HSU « The Humboldt Herald.

While other cities throughout California have started to arrest anti-Wall Street protesters for unlawful assembly and camping, law enforcement officials in Humboldt County said they're still monitoring the various groups. Arcata Police Chief Tom Chapman said the only reason two Occupy Arcata people were arrested Monday was because they got rowdy with a police officer. ”I had made an agreement with the group that no tents would be set up,” Chapman said.

He said the Arcata protest has started to degrade into a free-for-all where people are using the “Occupy” movement as an excuse to be there and party. The Arcata Eye: Occupy Humboldt Matures, Projects Protest To Community. The Occupy Humboldt camp on the Humboldt State Quad.

Paul Mann, requested that the Occupier issue a correction. Mr. Mann felt we wrongly inferred that the Board of Trustees (BOT) makes all decisions with respect to the CSU system, while in reality the BOT is only one of multiple decision makers that guide CSU fiscal and educational policy. After consideration the Occupier must admit that Mr. Mann has a point, and that we should have been more exact in our explanation of the CSU decision making process. The BOT makes many decisions for all the CSUs; some of those decisions include tuition hikes and salaries hikes for CSU presidents.
