Tiny Houses for the Homeless Rally LA City Hall March 18. 2016 11:30 AM

Film maker/News Producer Dean Ryan specifies on the Freedom Of Joyce show that the tiny homes were donated to the homeless by individuals not corporations.  Unfortunately, the houses were  confiscated by the LAPD on behalf of Los Angeles City Council.  The LAPD also confiscated camping equipment and gear which was also donated.

The reason behind seizing the tiny homes is the suspicion that the occupants are consuming alcohol, illegal drugs, and fornicating.  They can not have this in Los Angeles on public land claims LA City Council.  There has only been one reported case of drinking alcohol and one reported case of weapon possession. Dean Ryan states that such claims are a speculation, and can be classified more or less as “thought crimes”,  because one can speculate that their neighbor is engaging in such activities whether it be in Beverly Hills or Skid Row.

There is never a problem when there is a tent city on the public sidewalk which council members refer to as “bulk junk”.  That seems to never bother them because now they can point to the taxpayer and say, “We need more social corporate welfare tax money.”

Dean Ryan suggests that if these homes are really a nuisance and a hazard than let’s find a safe area to put the tiny homes on. Let’s teach the homeless how to make crisis gardens. Let’s build our cities and communities back one individual idea at a time. That’s what this tiny house movement is really all about.  It’s about making a difference. Not just talking about it, but being about it.

There will be a Rally on March 18, 2016 at 11:30 AM in front of LA City Hall to shed light on the immoral crime committed on the less fortunate by the City Council and demand the stolen tiny houses be returned.

Guest Speakers:
Dean Ryan (Film Maker/News Producer)
Sean Stone (Actor/TV Host)
Adam Kokesh (Author/Activist)
Marisol Medina (Tiny Homes Architect)
Elvis Summers (Tiny Homes Architect)
Brian Engelman (The New American Media)
and many more..

Go Topless Day Protest & Rally Venice Beach CA

I just recently went to a Go Topless Day Protest & Rally in Venice Beach California.  I was inspired to take Freedom Of Joyce Media to do a women on the street interview for a multitude of reasons.

Pasties me lighter smaller

I had recently interviewed my friend Suzanne Whang. I noticed that she made a  post over her discontent with someone whom had reported a photo that she had posted on facebook. The photo was a a picture of her breasts after treatment for cancer.

Facebook VS Free Speech

Suzanne felt her photo was tasteful and very helpful to woman who were struggling with self acceptance of their body image post  treatment.  Facebook reviewed the complaint and determined that her photo did not fit into the facebook community guidelines.  https://www.facebook.com/communitystandards.

Social media platforms such as facebook and instagram allow pics of breasts as  long as the nipples are covered.  According to facebook, the only acceptable nipple exposure allowed would be what  “they” determine as “art”.

If it is not art, but a selfie of your bare beauties you must cover the nipples.  If you want, you can cut and paste a man’s nipples over your nipples in the photo. This has been determined to be acceptable for social media platforms like twitter, instagram, and facebook.  There are even nipple templates online that you can use for your convenience.

Legally, the nipples are considered lewd. Exposure of your twins sunny-side up in public, can get you arrested in many states in the US.

Gotopless.org  created the hashtag #freethenipples and just recently aired their documentary “Free the Nipples”  a few days before the protest took place on Venice Beach. Suzanne Whang took it a step further on facebook by creating the hashtag #freethevowels, because profanity is acceptable on social media if you replace the vowel with another symbol like this “F#ck”.

The catalyst for gotopless.org  started back in 1992 with the case People VS Ramona Santorelli and Mary Lou Schloss. The New York Court of Appeals ruled in favor of two women who were arrested with five others for exposing their breasts in a Rochester park, holding the law void as discriminatory.  The ruling was put to the test in 2005, when Jill Coccarro bared her breasts on Delancey Street in New York, citing the 1992 decision, and was detained for twelve hours. She subsequently successfully sued the city for $29,000.

In 2007, Go Topless, a national organization supporting gender equality in shirtlessness laws, established Go Topless Day. Dozens of women protest – often topless – in thirty cities around the United States, promoting equal rights to be shirtless.

Go Topless was formed in the state of Nevada by a former French auto-racing journalist Claude Vorilhon, currently known as Rael, spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement, a UFO religion.

I also, became interested in covering this protest with Freedom Of Joyce media because I had noticed women in the US, and other countries protesting topless with messages written across their chests rather than pieces of cardboard or banners.

Take notice that circles of black ink have been drawn over the nipples in this photo, which means one should be able to share it on facebook or instagram with no penalties.

Women protesting topless or nude is nothing new.  According to legend, Lady Godiva rode nude on a horse through the streets of England in order to to gain a remission of the oppressive toll imposed by her husband on his tenants.

Perhaps, the courage of woman to bare all to change the world is just what we need right now.  Changing the world one breast at at time.
