On October 23, 2012, five OccupySF demonstrators submitted claims against the City of San Francisco for damages. The damages include, but are not limited to personal injury from assaults, loss of property from SFPD and DPW raids and deprivation and conspiracy to deprive Constitutionally protected rights.
OccupySF has experienced over a year of political suppression and, now, we are fighting back by exercising the First Amendment Right to petition the government for redress of grievances. More and more police and banks are being held accountable for their reckless behavior and OccupySF is hopeful that justice will be served for the abuse that has carried on over the past year. Please, stay tuned…this should get interesting.
