"The state is more than a set of power relations; it’s also the people who make those relations function. And people have the power to decide. This was made clear in Albany, as police resisted calls from politicians to disperse the crowd and instead acted in the interest of public safety. And Arun Gupta notes that police in Allentown, PA were openly supportive of the local Occupation. Each of the police officers who attacked protesters in Oakland could have said no." (10/29/11)
