A Letter of Appeal to the NYPD, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and the Occupiers of New York City
The following words were composed in India, thousands of miles, over land and sea, from my home in New York City. On Thursday, November 17th 2011, my partner, in love and life, was arrested for her participation in New York's national "Day of Action," chartered by the organizers of Occupy Wall St. She was held in custody by the NYPD for 34 hours, neglected of necessary medical treatment, and deprived of food. Furthermore, she was falsely charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and harassment. I will return to her story in time.
