I doubt that the DC police would enforce military law, but a pretext arrest for anything ELSE would be dangerous. If MPs show up at Freedom Plaza, they will be late by many hours.
After Micah left the area, a rumored march did not take place, but many Occupiers remained on Freedom Plaza.
Micah is turning his back on the wars of both George W Bush and Barrack Obama, at considerable risk to himself. After this 25 minute interview he was very quick to exit the area, and a previously discussed march did not take place.
Micah is asking that people NOT vote for any candidate running for office, as they are all owned by the same corporations.
