Firefighters save a dog with mouth-to-nose respiration.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is what sparked this morning’s “ugly cry.”
The larger question the movement now faces is whether, without Zuccotti Park (and dozens of other occupation sites around the country that have been similarly raided) it will be able to hold the focus of its supporters. The movement has been re-energized. It has turned a corner. But to where?
People CRAMMED on the UC Davis quad this afternoon and listened to the chancellor apologize for the police crackdown last week:
I am here to apologize. I feel horrible for what happened on Friday. If you think you don’t want to be students in a university like we had on Friday, I am just telling you, I don’t want to be the chancellor of the university we had on Friday. [someone yells, “then resign!”] Our university has to be better than it is. And it needs all of the community to come together to do that. We need to work together. And I know you may not believe anything I am telling you today, and you don’t have to, it is my responsibility to earn your trust.
