#OccupySF and the Police

Posted on October 5, 2011


If you haven’t heard, the police are supposed to be moving in on Occupy SF at midnight: #OccupySF – City of San Francisco Notification.

The City and County of San Francisco and its police department celebrate and protect the right of an individual to engage in free speech and of the right to assemble. However, this encampment is a violation of the law. For those involved in the encampment at the Federal Reserve Bank, you are in violation of one or more of the following local ordinances or state laws:

·      Open flames on a city street or sidewalk without a permit from the department of Public Works and the San Francisco Fire department (Section 105.6.32 Fire Code – open flame, LP Gas 3801.2 FC, Gas 105.6 and 105.7 FC)

·      Disorderly conduct-lodging in any building, structure, vehicle, or place, whether public or private (647(e) Penal Code)

·      Public nuisance 581 Health Code

·      Preparing or serving food without a permit

·      Permit required for temporary occupancy of the street and/or sidewalk

·      Civil sidewalk violations (168 MPC)

Accordingly, you are being ordered to take down this structure. Refusal to comply and/or obstruction of our efforts to remove the structure may result in your arrest.

The City’s homeless outreach team will provide, for those whop wish, support for shelter. The Department of Public Works will store your property if you do not have the means to take it with you.

because how dare people occupy public space and cook food for themselves. my buddy posted this on my facebook:

 The people of the Occupy SF movement and all true American patriots celebrate the right of the city and county of San Francisco and its police department to freely post whatever notices they want, however, THEY are in violation of their oath to uphold the law, the greatest of which is the U.S. Constitution. The Federal Reserve Banking System is unconstitutional and immoral and if the San Francisco Government and its police department had any true sense of civic duty, they would stand in solidarity with the Occupy movement until this oppressive financial system was abolished. Re-post!

It’s absolutely correct.
