GET ON POINT PEOPLE! I am a chalk protest activist but I DO NOT support "chalkupy" at ArtWalk in Los Angeles. "Chalkupy" Los Angeles has vowed this ArtWalk to keep their protest to Pershing Square and area Banks but I'm afraid of rumors that people from Oakland are coming down to cause trouble wherever it's most crowded, i.e. ArtWalk. Why? What are you protesting at ArtWalk? Artists? Small businesses? Because those are the only people affected by the last "chalk walk", and clashing with the police at that particular event only makes the protestors look bad. Chalk in front of a bank and make a point about it. Occupy Oakland are the same folks pictured smashing American Apparel stores, which is, ironically, local American Manufacturing! WTF??!! Use protest well America, it's sacred and growing more rare. And if the main thought in your heart going into a protest is "Fuck the Police" you are lost.
Wow, thanks. peace on both sides, the people and the police, made for a calm, fun artwalk and not another pointless riot scene. This chalking issue is going to be solved in court once and for all. this was the coolest thing I saw that night
