"Occupy Dallas" disarms Tony and sends greetings across the Pacific

New York City has their protest group, “Occupy Wall Street.” This group gave rise to like-minded people across the United States of America – USA to conduct their own “Occupy” protest groups. These groups name their rallies after the cities they are in, such as “Occupy Dallas.”

This video is my visit to the “Occupy Dallas” group encamped in downtown Dallas, Pioneer Plaza. When I was there I saw around four police officers, and the protestors in the Plaza.

Link explaining Pioneer Plaza:

The group was polite and respectful. Political activism is healthy for any democratic republic. The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America reads in part,

“…..the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

As long as they were not violent or disruptive, and to date they have not been violent or disruptive, they are free to participate and exercise their Constitutional right “peaceably to assemble.”
