Beyond truth to power?

Chris Corrigan spots this post by Tom Attlee about the Occupy Movement at UC Davis in California.

Tom describes the scene in this video.

Police confront students and it looks as though it’s all going to turn very ugly. Then at 6m13s into the video someone calls a “mic check” and through the crowd offers the police a moment of peace and the chance to leave.

And they do.

Watch it, it’s an astonishing moment. We all know the line about speaking truth to power… this is something else.
