Los Angeles Tent City


The deaf people of Los Angeles could feel the “earthquake” from the epicenter, nearly 2,500 miles away, Gallaudet University. The protest rally held earlier today in Los Angeles symbolizes nothing but full support to our dearest folks, FSSA, for their continued struggle against social injustice that happened at Gallaudet University. FSSA, not the Board of Trustees, is our best hope for making Gallaudet a better university.

    A Way Super Cool Video! Peter Wolf! John M. Genie Gertz! What a wonderful assembly.

    Not even a hit of Ritchie 9.0 ! Why? Rivy People will stike tomorrow!

    We the Rivy fellows will be having a rally tomorrow night. I hope to see something speculating — regarding the future of turn of event(s)!

    Thank you, Joey for sharing the great documentary film. I will see what happens tomorrow at CSDR, and we will share with you.

    Rivy, we better get busy, and show we do care, too. Let hit the earth beyond 9.0!

    Come and show your support at CSDR tomorrow evening at 7 pm (Social Hall).

    There’s a tent city some 300 miles east of Los Angeles that does not appear to be another Gallaudet protest camp; it looks like a military camp in the desert, with thick canvas sleeping quarters spreading out in a remote area of Arizona.

    The inhabitants, however, are not soldiers, but residents of an unusual, some say brutal, prison run by legendary lawman Joe Arpaio, called the toughest sheriff in the country. And, he’s awaiting Gallaudet’s Axis of Evil.

    Hello
    I’m a reporter at the Washington Post midwest bureau in Chicago. I’m urgently seeking people in the CHicago area who are involved with organizing a tent city here; i heard there was one in the suburbs the other day and I see one reader posted a comment here about a possible tent city in Chicago? I think our story is actually for tomorrow’s paper so I’m sorry for the short notice but I wonder if anyone with information on a tent city in the CHicago area (including suburbs) could contact me at lydersenk@washpost.com. Thank you!
