Financial District Occupy Protests right outside the building I work in, we’re not being allowed to leave. Everyone that works in the building is noticeably irritated. The building is providing us free lunch for the inconvenience.
You know what’s inconvenient? Not being able to work. Not being able to feed yourself, your family, having to stretch your body, your mind, your fucking beliefs to fit in to a system that that sustains privilege, that feeds the white, enabled (fuck “able-bodied”) cisgendered, hetero, upper middle class, English speaking patriarchy.
Everyone’s so mad because it’s disrupting their business day. No one here considers how their business day, and consequently, the system, is disrupting people’s LIVES.
