A tent is not a tent: it is a home. Anyone who violates the Constitution must be convicted of high treason-in this case the Mayors of Oakland, Berkeley, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York. Our Constitution allows for freedom of speech and peaceful assembly (First Amendment), and the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures (Fourth Amendment). There were homeless people in our Occupy encampment and the tents were their homes. Why should the downtrodden have to be abandoned and freeze on the streets of our urban cities? Moreover, we have the right to sit or lie on the street as a protest. This letter is asking the people of the United States, all of us, to petition the government to redress our grievances, and to replace its current officials with newly-elected candidates who believe in our Constitution. Let us be one, united to promote the people.
