SFO #D23 Illuminate the Fed

December 21, 2013 admin Arts & Actions,VIDEOSComments Off

On December 23 America’s private banking cartel known as the Federal Reserve turns 100 years old and We the People have a simple message: Reform or Retire.

Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution did the Founders bestow authority to print money on a handful of private banks operating in secrecy from Congress and the people. The right to coin money belongs to the U.S. Treasury alone. For a century the Fed – a network of 12 banks that are 100% privately owned – have controlled our money supply by creating and loaning dollars as DEBT which the public has to pay back with interest.

Americans are Fed Up with the Fed which is why on its Centennial we will be illuminating it: shining light on an institution that exercises power in complete darkness. Join the festival of lights in San Francisco on #D23 and ILLUMINATE THE FED as coalitions of citizens stage actions at all 12 Federal Reserve Banks nationwide. Bring flashlight!

Anthony Messer — Homeless Services Center Memorial

December 19, 2013 admin Perspective,VIDEOSComments Off

On Thursday 19Dec2013, the Santa Cruz Homeless Service Center had a Memorial Service for the 48 homeless people who died this year. The HSC memorial featured a banner of flags, one flag for each person. Above is Anthony Messer’s flag.

On Day 8 of the Santa Cruz ReOccupy, Friday 24Feb2012 at 2AM, deputies rousted him by throwing water on him. They soaked him and his sleeping bag. He said he had not shivered so much that night than his deep snow training in Wisconsin for the US Army Cavelry. He talks about that in the video above.

Anthony Messer actively organized events with Occupy Santa Cruz, and he contributed several articles to the OSC website. In March of 2012, he participated in Tent University at UC Santa Cruz, as well as the associated campus shut down. He also participated in many of the larger Bay Area and Northern California events that occurred during the Occupy movement, which included marching with supporters of the S.F. Commune during the occupation of 888 Turk Street in San Francisco.

RIP Anthony

They cut the padlock off the gate, and marched onto the last pristine farmland in the urban East Bay. They raised a banner that read, Occupy the Farm, and told the press, “farmland is for farming.”

Then they planted 15,000 seedlings to save this publicly owned land from becoming a shopping mall, condos and a baseball diamonds.

Occupy the Farm surprised officials. Inspired and angered the neighbors. Created a media sensation. Drew in the riot police. And changed the fate of the land.
