SPM contributor Miriam Roček arrested at #OWS again

Word on the facebooks is that Miriam Roček, aka Steampunk Emma Goldman, was arrested in last night’s attempt to retake and hold Liberty Plaza (née Zuccotti Park).

To my knowledge, this is her third arrest as part of Occupy Wall Street. This, from my point of view, is cosplay done right. I’m really damn proud of her, and proud that she’s become a regular contributor to the magazine. (She was interviewed for her cosplay in number 8 and also wrote the history piece on Toussaint Louverture and the Haitian revolution.)

Here’s a video of her in full steampunk garb delivering a classic Emma Goldman speech at Liberty Plaza last fall. (Don’t worry, they drop the people’s mic before she gets to her speech).
