Common Dreams – Anonymous NYPD Footage – 25 September 2012

Members of Anonymous have released sixty hours of footageof the mostly blacked-out raid last November by the NYPD that dismantled Occupy Wall Street’s Zucotti Park encampment. They also posted a 16-minute highlight video on YouTube. Both could be useful for ongoing legal actions against the police. And a year after the Bologna pepper-spray incident, a baby is due.

Rob Kall – Occupy Wall Street Metamophosizes – And It’s Beautiful And Fun – 7 July 2012

I spent four of the five days at the Occupy National Gathering and my here’s my overall impression;

It was a powerful, visionary, exciting, FUN gathering of representatives from close to 100 different Occupy locales. Marches through Philadelphia, aimed at Comcast and big Banks, in heat reaching mid 90s temperatures, had upwards of 300-500 marchers.  Continue reading

Jean Haines – Another MUST READ Op-Ed From Our Own SaS In Response To: Natasha Loder, Economist Journalist, Detained At Mitt Romney Event – 29 February 2012

There’s a reason why the police have been directed to arrest reporters as well as “Occupy Wall Street” protestors. In the beginning, they were just mercilessly beating up defenseless college students and OWS protestors, spraying them with militarized pepper spray, and detaining them–making them kneel down for hours while they “had a paddy wagon come round” to haul them off to jail. But, tactics changed over the winter. Continue reading

David Icke – Essential Knowledge For #OccupyWallStreet Protesters

By David Icke – via http://www.in5d.com : also thanks to Ron van Dycke for pointing out these facts to us as David Icke did.

David Icke - Essential Knowledge For A #OccupyWallStreet ProtestorDavid Icke offers solutions to the Occupy Wall Street movement which is now being globally called Occupy Together or simply, the Occupy Movement or Protest. Icke believes we need to end the ability of private banks being able to create money out of fresh air on screens and charging interest on it.  Icke believes that all governments should create their own currency, interest free, and circulate it interest free so it can be a unit of exchange to overcome the limitations of barter because the same networks that control the banks, control the governments.

(NaturalNews) As predicted, it was only a matter of time before protesters at Occupy Wall Street (OWS) began experiencing the wrath of the new American police state which, as we wrote about previously, happened to receive a special cash infusion recently from Wall Street icon JPMorgan Chase (http://www.naturalnews.com/033779_J…).

A series of videos uploaded to YouTube show officers from the New York Police Department (NYPD) storming the streets, assaulting protesters, beating them with night sticks, and even bragging and laughing about the fact that they are getting to use their weapons against citizens. In one incident, reporters from My FOX New York were even assaulted with pepper spray and beaten with batons (http://www.myfoxny.com/dpp/news/occ…).

In the first, shorter clip posted at the following link, you will see a high-ranking NYPD officer standing in the middle of a crowd swinging his baton at protesters that were apparently trying to cross a barrier. In the second, longer clip taken from a different angle, you see the same officer swatting his baton, as well as numerous other officers assaulting other protesters:http://gothamist.com/2011/10/05/vid…

In this clip, you will see an officer laughing and telling a fellow officer that “[his] little nightstick’s going to get a workout tonight,” referencing, of course, the confrontations with protesters that would soon follow:

Though disturbing, the state’s hostile response to these OWS protests is still relatively mild, especially compared to what took place at the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York, for instance. At that event, cops stormed the streets in full riot gear, pushed back crowds with eery, NAZI-like street marches, trampled protesters with horses, blasted them with pepper spray and smoke bombs, and even fired long range acoustic device (LRAD) sound weapons at people on the streets (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f144…).

And again in 2009, riot police and military personnel stormed the streets of Pittsburgh, Penn., during the G20 Summit. An InfoWars video shows a group of about 1,200 police state troops attacking over 300 Americans at one time, many of whom were not even part of the protests and had no idea that they was even taking place (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFYo…).

Americans must stop standing idly by while the police state takes full control

The police brutality exhibited at all these events is disturbing, and it is likely going to get worse in response to the ongoing OWS protests. But what is even more disturbing is the relative complacency of outside observers during almost every police state incident, many of whom can be seen watching police state thugs terrorizing their fellow man, but doing nothing.

If tyranny against free speech, the right to freely assemble, and all the other constitutional protections that are routinely violated is ever to cease, Americans are going to have to step forward and begin actively resist it. This includes developing a little more willingness and courage to help protect others from police attacks, especially when it is occurring right before their eyes.
