The forces of oppression did it again, from the Telegraph:

A graphic photo of the former teacher after she was hit with the chemical irritant went viral, becoming one of the most striking images from the protests that have taken place in cities across the globe.

Beatings, chemical weapons, audio warfare, this is America right?

Seattle police on Wednesday referred reporters to a statement they released late Tuesday. Officers gave multiple verbal warnings and only used pepper spray against people who were "refusing a lawful order to disperse or engaging in assaultive behavior toward officers."

Six people were arrested. Rainey said she was not among them.

A self-described "old lady in combat boots," she briefly entered the 2009 Seattle mayoral race. She quit that contest, saying she was too old.

She said Wednesday she'll still be taking part in the local Occupy Seattle movement.

"I'm pretty tough, I guess."

She's very tough. But should it be left to Dorli to take back the freedoms we've lost from 1% greed and their cronies in government?

Dorli wasn't even the only person assaulted that day, from HuffPo:

Rainey was among a group of Seattle protesters scattered by police on Tuesday. A pregnant 19-year-old woman was also reportedly hit by pepper spray Tuesday, The Associated Press reported...

A priest was also among those pepper sprayed during the protesters' march from their camp at Seattle Central Community College to Westlake Park, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Police officers on bicycles attempted to block the protesters' way. After tensions mounted, the police used pepper spray to disperse the crowd.

For Scott Olsen, for Dorli, for all those who have been abused - It's time to stand up for human rights against tyranny.

Tomorrow is November 17th and OWS is marching on Wall Street, Dorli could use some help.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
