United Santa Assault in the USA! Peace. Harmony. Joy. Community. These were just a few of the horrifying threats scrawled by an Occupy movement Santa and some of his little helpers in sidewalk chalk at the State Capitol in Austin, Texas.

Not because of x-mas and the Nasty Santas. But all the time. Cause Big Brother IS watching. So is Big Lots. And Bob’s Big Boy and Big Mac and the rest of the big bad corporate people. What? They are people, aren’t they? Must be. Says so in the big legal tomes and on the bigger Internet. Prove they’re not. See? Now…prove you are. Hah!

UC Davis Professor calls out Chancellor: Police Brutality Is Your Fault. Resign Now!

Nathan Brown, Faculty in Critical Theory, UC Davis

In an open letter to University of California Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi, Assistant Professor Nathan Brown challenged her to take responsibility for the tear-gassing of peaceful, seated protestors.

Brown wrote: “You are responsible for it because this is what happens when UC Chancellors order police onto our campuses to disperse peaceful protesters through the use of force: students get hurt. Faculty get hurt.”

Among the injured were Professor Robert Hass, former Poet Laureate of the United States. For the full text of Dr. Brown’s letter, click here. For a slideshow of the Cal Occupation, here. And for another take on the police pepper-spraying students at Davis, here. Note the sea of camera-phones. The revolution will not be televised, but it may well be webcast.
