For the first time since demonstrators began the occupation of City Hall eight days ago, some participants have now found themselves behind bars. Four people of the Occupy Austin movement were arrested early Thursday morning after refusing to leave the grounds of City Hall while workers power washed the area. However, it’s nothing but business in the executive boardroom of Occupy Austin. Co-Creators are busy developing an intranet system to reach other like-minded demonstrators across the country. "We kind of just come up here and draw out, 'Where do you think this should go? How can we unite this movement?'" Occupy Austin co-creator Cesar Fuentez said. Thursday’s early morning arrests prompt questions about the future of the movement: How can civil disobedience lead to real democratic change? "Instead of just riding along the side of a battle ship, throwing rocks on the side of the hull and asking the battle ship to change, we're going to build our own battle ship," co-creator Chris Nielson said The group is still working out the specifics and “drafting blue prints,” according to Nielson. "We're currently refining it and it’s taking a little while to do it. But at the end of the day we have to change our socio, political and economic system and that is going to encompass deep reforms," he said. Those deep changes include campaign reform, banking and corporate accountability and closing corporate tax loopholes. Until those goals are reached, creators of Occupy Austin say they won’t be budging an inch. Produced for Austin Indymedia by Jeff Zavala. A ZGraphix Production. http://zgraphix.org
