9th and Virginia gets the Power turned off
by Anonymous 9:28pm Wed Dec 1 '99

An attorney spoke with the squatters by cell phone, who were attempting to
negotiate with police to have the power turned back on.

An attorney told me of the conversation that had just ended by cell phone
with the squatters at 9th and Virginia. The police had shut off the power
in an attempt to force them out, or at least affect them in their retreat.
The power shut off also affected all of the businesses in the area. Their
grounds for negotiation rest on the grounds that it wasn't the police's
electricity to turn off, and that the local businesses also want the power
turned back on.

END FORWARD
