Video: Occupy Austin’s 3-Hour Free Speech Time Limit Is Up

Video: Occupy Austin’s 3-Hour Free Speech Time Limit Is Up

Occupy Wall Street protests in Austin, Texas, didn’t last as long as those in LA or New York…only three hours to be exact. Watch the video below as the officer explains the three-hour limit:

Here’s what the uploader of this video wrote on her YouTube page:

So, basically, if you happen upon a group of people with signs, and you decide that you like what they are saying and wish to join in the protest, you don’t technically get your full 3 hours of free speech per unspecified amount of time.

I wasn’t messing around when I said I had never met some of the people who joined us. One of them saw that we were evicted from the Capitol yesterday, and showed up at the very end of our allotted 3 hours of free speech time, and was told she was part of our “event” and that she would be ticketed and could risk arrest if she didn’t leave.

Dude. That’s messed up.

By the way. My sign said “All children should have access to healthcare, food, and a decent education.” Real revolutionary stuff there. I can see why they wouldn’t want me to talk about that with people for longer than 3 hours per unspecified time frame.
