Any of you Occupiers out there who were arrested the night the LAPD evicted Occupy LA - November 30th - still have holiday shopping to do, or want to read up on civil rights? Good news from your local independent book store, Skylight Books:
Following this week's events at OccupyLA, Skylight would like to introduce an "Unlawful Assemblers' Discount": Did you stand up for your right to publicly assemble, and to challenge economic inequality through the Occupy movement? The police may not give you a break, but we'd like to. For the next month, bring in a booking slip or proof of your 409.PC charge from the night of the eviction and get 15% off your entire purchase.
I spoke with Megan Wade of Skylight earlier today, whose arrest during the raid on Occupy LA inspired the "Unlawful Assembler's Discount." "I believe it's really important to stand up when there are situations like those we're facing today with our economy and other issues," Megan explained. "We need to have a national dialogue that will help solve the problems faced by the majority of people in the country...protests and books are both great mediums to stimulate conversation."
Happy reading, all you brave outlaws.
