    if you're gonna shout "they'll never take our X!", then X really should be something they really can't take.

    "freedom" is a very bad one here. "they can take our lives but they can't take our freedom?" Have you never heard of jail?

    They may take our lands but they'll never take... our gazebo?

    The cops are going to attack the gazebo.

    So we get stiff once in a while. So we have a little fun. What’s wrong with that? This is a free country, isn’t it? I can take my panda any place I want to. And if I wanna buy it a drink, that’s my business.

    oh good, they're trying to board up a gazebo to fortify it against police entry

    that's gonna go well

    um

    why?

    look man i don't know

    these people refuse to lose. they've lost. there was a legal battle in the courts, they lost, their tent city has to go down, them's the fuckin' breaks

    but some of them do NOT want to accept that, and they're acting like 10 year olds who don't want to leave summer camp and go back home to their real lives

    oh the cops are gonna evict them

    then I get it.

    I say good on them! Let the cops have a grand old hippie-bashing time.

    oh god, one of the dudes near my friend is screaming at the cops asking to see a warrant for them poking around in the tents

    "They can take anything we have really, even abstract concepts, but fight anyway" isn't all that inspiring though.

    also, hm okay have to get people to leave, they've barricaded themselves inside a gazebo

    what to do what to do

    oh I know

    lob a tear gas grenade in there

    or maybe just put it outside of it where they can't reach

    let's see how long they want to stay.

    Perhaps tell them a 5-piece New Orleans-style brass band needs to use the gazebo.

  • AbdhyiusAbdhyius Registered User regular
    if they've shut themselves inside a gazebo then they're stuck

    so just throw like, spiders and beehives and tear gas in there until they start tearing it down

    thus far, the cops haven't done any of those things

    they're just quietly milling around, making notes of where the tents are and how many people are in them and so on

    they're planning a move, not sure what that move is yet, but knowing the Toronto Police it's going to be something a little more targeted and precise than kettling the whole park with riot shields n shit

    hahahah they're now packing up and taking away the port-o-potties

    that seems like a good first move

    if they were military police they'd sort this out quick-like

    at one end of the park, you have your mps, in an angled line

    you throw some tear gas into the camp, then have your mp line march forward

    when they're close you give them the order to present bayonets and go into half step (and close their eyes and hold their breath)

    and then you keep marching until you're through the gas cloud

    easy peasy

    fuck riot shields, a line of bayonets will make everybody move

    Yep, tear gassing and then stabbing incapacitated civilian protesters to death is a fantastic idea.

    Well it would certainly make them think twice about protesting again.

    Sounds like a great time to use one of those experimental area denial devices. Like the microwave emitter that gives everyone a sun burn or the ultrasonic one that causes people to become disoriented and nauseous.

    apparently the police are going around putting tags on every tent, in preparation for just grabbing them all and packing them up

    so that people can then claim their belongings later, i guess

    I am shocked by Anno 2070, it has turned out to be a marvelous game.

    The soundtrack alone is pretty incredible.

    The Wheel of Calculadon turns, and then suddenly? Orbital lasers.

    anyone who is unable to get a move on when poked with a bayonet obviously wants to be stabbed

    @gooey @tyrannus have y'all landed on Kerbal's Mun yet? I have not, just downloaded v 0.12. The piloting might be kind of tricky. they need a better interface, something in addition to the roll/pitch/yaw compass.

    there was a blog somewhere that described the police waiting until night when most of the protesters had gone home, dismantling the encampment, and then occupying the space. as in, Occupying. same choice of tactic.

    Aiming for the mun is kind of a PITA.

    What's that game's deal? I saw it on Steam's top sellers list and didn't know what it was and I was just like, "What are you, game? What are you doing here? What's your deal?"

    so the cops have started dismantling the tents at Occupy Toronto

    it's been peaceful, quiet, and hasn't been any violent confrontations thus far

    the protestors are shouting shit and threatening to do stuff but they're not actually doing anything to stop police

  • DynagripDynagrip destroy everything you touch Registered User, ClubPA regular
    I think I'm actually going to make a couple of presents to my santee. Like maybe a little robot and some yet to be determined item. Probably throw in a third gift, like a book or a movie, in case they hate the results of my DIYness.

    A polite breaking up of a protest rally.

    It's like they're trying to be stereotypical Canadians.

    i think they learned from the G20 fiasco last year what works and what doesn't

    not having a bunch of foreign cops fucking things up probably helps

    the last time there was an occupation of sorts in Norway that the police were trying to break up, people weren't just sitting about whining, they had chained themselves together and several people were arrested and/or maimed trying to blow up bridges

    what I'm saying is, I rate your performance "poor", toronto hippies

    the cops aren't even taking the tents down here

    there's city workers doing that, the cops are just supervising/guarding

    so the protesters are yelling at the city workers, trying to shame them into stopping, all "you are one of us why are you doing the work of the police" etc. etc.

    so many flavors of "fuck those people"
