People in San Francisco (3500 miles away) are protesting Big Oil, and what it has cost us, on the Gulf Coast. What a strange disconnect. Thank you, NorCal, for caring, and for standing up.

If you take notice to the protestors doing the sit-in, the police start arresting every single one of them, before they do they surround them in an attempt to block other people from joining.

Doing this is a complete violation of our first amendment rights.

Remember, the First Amendment of the Constitution covers Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Expression, and Freedom of Assembly (protesting is assembly).

If ever asked by a police officer to leave the site of a protest, REFUSE. If arrested argue in court that it is unconstitutional, then sue.
