In the memo the protesters highlighted the detention of huge numbers of ‘Occupy’ protesters around the United States, called for urgent attention and hinted that the silence over the issue will imply that all has done with the government’s acceptance.
The memo reads out:
Mr. President: Over 4000 peaceful protesters have been arrested. While bankers continue to destroy the American economy. You must stop the assault on our 1st amendment rights. Your silence sends a message that police brutality is acceptable. Banks got bailed out. We got sold out.
