Today the City of Halifax decided to use a camping bylaw to shut Occupy Nova Scotia down. They did this on Remembrance Day. That is the single stupidest move I have ever seen a politician make. Remembrance Day! The day we give thanks to those who gave everything so that we can live in a free country, have the right to peaceful assembly, demonstrate, and speak up.
I’ve spent time talking with and interviewing the people at Occupy Nova Scotia. I was there Wednesday night and filmed the movement in action and it’s hard to get my head around why the city not only choose to shut it down but to do so in such a deceitful way.
More to follow.
