Why is Police at discussion on Gentrification?

24 Sep

Yesterday at the discussion that took place at the Bread and Roses housing co op on Gentrification, it came to the attention of some of the people attending who went out for a smoke that police was outside the building due to this event. After awhile police came and made cocky comments to those people. This event was not a demonstration or an action or a meeting to plan an action but rather a discussion. Why were police there? do we no longer have a right to even discuss the conditions we are facing without police presence. What happened to the idea that the police is not a political force?

We mus condemn this blatent move by the police and the state to criminalize our right to discuss the problems we are facing and tell our storys
