Occupy’s Values Tested at May Day Rally

I was at the rally and agree with JP..
For me it was a very sad moment. When one of the main issues of the day is the cost of higher ed and the lack of jobs available to grads it seems to me that alienating students who are not part of the rally was very short sighted. These are potential recruits to the movement and the conflict was a very big turn-off for those who just wanted a photo to remember their experiences at UGA. I felt ashamed by the short sighted, mis-directed, confrontational behavior.
I am a very radical supporter of the occupy movement and feel that what happened was not called for.
Peace,
Todd Lister

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
