Events were unfolding rather fast today at Occupy Regina.
First, Bylaw Enforcement threw a wild deuce in the pot by taking away the porta-potty graciously donated last week to allow for the eliminative body functions that we, the housed, take for granted. On the one hand, city officials don’t want them installing grunt sculptures in the bushes, and on the other hand, they are no longer allowed to bust nug nugs in a safe clean porta-potty.
Of course, The City knows they can’t have it both ways. This is just the first kerplunk, a passive-aggressive attempt to flush them out of the park.
And then by the time I got home and sat down at the computer I found out via Occupy Regina FB page that “Bylaw officers from the City of Regina have unofficially requested that the Occupy Regina camp be shut down under threat of enforcement of unconstitutional bylaws.”
Pant, pant, I can’t keep up to the Occupy Digerati. They have already created an online petition and are organizing meetings, 2 p.m. and 5:30 Tuesday, and a City Hall Rally on Wednesday at high noon.
Is this the week it all comes to a head?
