Occupy Movement

An Open Letter to the Citizens of Oakland from the OPD

"We represent the 645 police officers who work hard every day to protect the citizens of Oakland. We, too, are the 99%..."

What a bunch of whiny dickholes. If they disagree with the mayor's orders then they should use a little discretion (something many police officers lack these days) and participate in some civil-disobedience. Are they worried that one of their comrades may shoot them in the face?

Activists to "Occupy" candidate offices during Iowa caucuses

Occupy Wall Street activists plan to amass in Iowa one week before the Iowa caucuses - up to the day they're held on Jan. 3, CNN has learned. The plan has been dubbed the "First in the Nation Caucus Occupation" - a play on words for the first-in-the-nation presidential contest. The idea is to have activists from across the nation, and possibly beyond, descend on Iowa.

OccupyOakland: A Gallery of Rebels

After the pre-dawn raid of OccupyOakland the displaced Occupants performed an impromptu march through downtown Oakland and eventually returned to the Plaza where they faced off with officers from between 12 and 17 different departments. I have the good fortune to know Faeza Moghul and Tom Vee, both exceptional independent photographers and videographers in Oakland. Much of what follows was captured by them.

Chris Rock once said, “That tiger didn’t go crazy. That tiger went tiger!” Well the Oakland Police department went State. 500 paid thugs (i.e. officers and sheriff’s deputies) from over 12 agencies assisted the OPD in a pre-dawn raid of OccupyOakland, evicting campers from the newly named Oscar Grant Plaza in front of Oakland city hall. Riot police clad in gas masks used rubber bullets, bean bag rounds, flash grenades, tear gas canisters and an LRAD sonic cannon against non-violent peaceful protesters.

OccupySF: Locke vs Marx

Posted October 29th, 2011 by MuslimNonarchist

It didn’t take more than a few nights at OccupySF to realize that the core group of Occupiers were deeply committed young socialists, communists and social anarchsts, even more so at Occupy Oakland. In fact the magazine that started this whole Occupy Movement, AdBusters, is arguably an anarcho-communist rag. They are homeless young adults who are voluntarily unemployed as an act of rebellion against capitalism.

VIDEOS: More Police Brutality at OccupySF

Posted October 18th, 2011 by MuslimNonarchist

The Occupation was moved from the Federal Reserve to Justin Herman Plaza, which I believe was a request by the police, but I missed that General Assembly. The confrontation began when police demanded that the Occupiers disassemble their canapes. It appears some Occupiers responded by duct-taping themselves to the canapes, which didn’t cause the police a moment’s hesitation in tearing them down. Again the strategy of the activists was to form a human barricade when the Department of Public Works came to steal their supplies.
