Urgent – Occupy DC Tased – Video
 

Urgent – Occupy DC tased Video

https://SaveOccupyDC.org — Jan. 29, 2012. National Park Police tase a peaceful Occupy DC participant

My name’s Eric. I’m a middle-aged, middle-class PTA dad who participates in Occupy DC because I want a better country for our kids.

Today, the National Park Service brutally tased a peaceful, young Occupy DC demonstrator. This was a prelude to their threatened crackdown of Occupy DC this Monday at noon.

Watch the video here (warning: it’s graphic). And please join me in petitioning the National Park Service to leave Occupy DC alone.

Then pass this email to others — because the media will be at Occupy DC tomorrow, and the more signers we have, the more they can report that the public’s on our side.

Until now, Occupy DC has been protected from eviction because the National Park Service — not the DC police — have jurisdiction over us. The National Park Service said publicly, “We don’t have any issues with these folks” and “The core of their First Amendment activity is that they occupy the site.”

But last week, Republican Rep. Darrell Issa politicized the Park Service — holding hearings where he pressured them to crack down on Occupy DC under the pretext of enforcing camping regulations. The Park Service quickly buckled.

We need to create our own pressure. Click here to tell the National Park Service that First Amendment rights trump camping rules.

Then, pass this to others so we can show the media a public outpouring.

Occupy DC is fighting the good fight in our nation’s capital — protesting the Koch brothers, both political parties, and Joe Lieberman (last night) for being part of a broken political system that is hurting our democracy. Monday is key to our survival — please stand with us in solidarity.

— Eric Lotke, Occupy DC participator and dad

YogaEarth Natural Coconut Water: The Way Nature Intended
 

“Regular” health fanatics go down to the local health store and puck up a protein bar or sports drink when they think of recovering from strenuous physical exercise.  “Normal” people go about their daily routine and choose to ignore their body’s need for natural, healthy sources of nutrients.  Slowly their bodies deteriorate because they are not getting nutrients the way nature intended: from real natural foods.

Enter YogaEarth’s Coconut Water.  Named “Purity” because it is made of 100% coconut water and contains no additives, this amazing natural recovery drink contains more potassium than a banana, and natural electrolytes and nutrients that you would get from a coconut right off of the tree.  YogaEarth is serious about what they do and completely concerned about the environment and continuing nature’s beautiful work on our planet.  Their coconut water operations in Bali, Indonesia have a much smaller carbon footprint than leading coconut water brands.

YogaEarth’s coconut water is packaged in individual servings (a box contains 30 packets) which makes them easier to pack and take with you.  The packets are much smaller and more convenient than a traditional bottle of coconut water.  The natural nutrients are preserved, you just get more convenience out of the deal.  Perhaps the best part for some of us is that this coconut water is affordable: just $1 per serving at YogaEarth.

YogaEarth also offers other natural health products ranging from food bars to tea to even clothing and fitness gear.  If you consider yourself a “health nut” or are at all physically active and interested in natural alternatives to supplementation, you owe it to yourself to check out YogaEarth.com.
