"Governments will always do what government always has done … lie, cheat, steal, and KILL for control; but Governments are fabrications. They are human constructs of the mind. They have no real power without the people who comprise them and the order followers who enforce their draconian laws without any critical thought.

Iverson said the protesters, who were holding a sit-in and singing prayer hymns, faced disorderly conduct charges," AP reported.
