the Occupy Los Angeles City council is approving permits for city festivals of music with celebrity involvement and donated solar panels from the City Transit. this is critical. we must follow the model of nonviolent intervention and communication and peaceful involvement in the youth and homeless veterans lives. the time is now for pro-active prevention of these police mistakes which will damage the corporate outlay of portland for investors. we can turn this into a win-win for the youth of #occupy and the city government. i look forward to speaking with you about how we can greet the future of your involvement in a peaceful cultural awakening as the #occupy movement sweeps the world. understand too that this breach of trust will need to be overcome with positive peaceful negotiation.
