Did Occupy Denver Police Tear-Gas Jack London's Great-Grandaughter?

08:44 Oct 29 2011 Denver, Colorado

Description
"I've been to a great many rallies in my time, but I have never before heard the cops say over and over again,'If you don't leave now, you will suffer bodily harm.'" So spoke Anne, an older activist tonight on the OccupyDenver livestream Saturday night, who witnessed the police tear gassing peaceful protesters. including an older woman resting on a park bench. The police lobbed a canister at the lone woman. It exploded at her feet while she sat paralyzed as the gas surrounded her. She fell to her knees, vomiting. Just then, a young man came to her rescue and helped her to safety.

"Do you know who that woman turned out to be?" the woman activist asked us over the feed as she addressed the crowds. "That woman was Jack London's granddaughter." She laughed incredulously. "They gassed Jack London's granddaughter." The woman activist who witnessed the police threats and the gassing of the granddaughter of Jack London is a civil rights lawyer.

This is just a portion of what I saw and heard on the live stream Saturday night, here at the Globalrevolution livestream.

Who is Jack London, you ask?

Wikipedia: John Griffith "Jack" London (born John Griffith Chaney,[1] January 12, 1876 – November 22, 1916)[2][3][4][5] was an American author, journalist and social activist. London was a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism and the rights of workers and wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, such as his dystopian novel, The Iron Heel and his non-fiction expose, The People of the Abyss.
Denver clashes were sparked off when police removed tents and attacked protesters with rubber bullets, pepper spray and canisters Saturday.

The irony of this moment cannot be lost upon the people of America, for whom this movement is growing in momentum and in fervor as police continue to use excessive force and methodology upon unsuspecting citizens.
