OWS: Against sexual harassment, against rape

October 25, 2011

The media reported an alleged rape at Occupy Cleveland and now a Crown Heights man arrested for sexual assault at Zuccotti Park.

This is one of the weaknesses of the “leaderless, horizontal” structure, and people need to STOP making a fetish out of the “everyone is a leader” meme. You need leadership to prevent this from happening, and to take swift action and to have the person arrested and to respond to the mayor and media.

It’s absolutely crucial that OWS come out with a condemnation of this in the STRONGEST possible terms, and take steps to ensure that all OWS sites be gender and race safe spaces.

Zero tolerance for any form of sexual harassment.
