1,500 OWS protesters on the move in NY

Occupy Wall Street protestors react as they are told to remove banners and signs from an area of Union Square Park in New York City by police March 21, 2012

Over a thousand Occupy Wall Street protesters have gathered in NY’s Union Square late on Wednesday, activists say. This follows a violent crackdown on protesters earlier in the day which left one woman injured and at least one person arrested.

The fresh OWS march started from Union Square, spilling into the streets of New York, which the city police were hurriedly trying to block. The Union Square subway station was also closed, organizers said in their live feed, in order to prevent more demonstrators joining the rally.

The protests received popular support with people hanging out their windows along the march’s route, banging pots and chanting. Protesters reported taxis honking their horns in a show of solidarity.

About 500 police officers barricaded the square, where occupiers were chanting “No justice? No peace!” Still, there have been no immediate reports of arrests.

Angered by police brutality towards demonstrators, OWS protesters have announced another rally for March 24, calling for supporters to gather at NYC’s Liberty Square.

A large protest rally is also planned for May 1. Organizers are calling on people to skip their work or school and take to the streets to protest against brutal arrests.

New Clancy ‘Rainbow Six’ vid game labels OWS protesters as the new domestic terror threat

Wednesday, December 21, 2011 by: J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) Is it getting increasingly harder to voice your opinion in the U.S. without someone labeling you a terrorist or a subversive? The latest outrage comes from the Tom Clancy-inspired “Rainbow Six” videogame series, in which Occupy Wall Street protesters are the new domestic terrorists.

The latest incarnation of the series, “The Patriots,” won’t hit stores until 2013, but here’s a sample of the plot: “Terrorism has evolved and America is under attack. Capitalizing on the sense of frustration in a nation seemingly corrupted by greedy politicians and corporate special interests, a group of US citizens-turned-radicals, the True Patriots, will stop at nothing to overthrow the government and financial institutions. As a leader of the elite Rainbow counter-terrorism unit, players will be the last line of defense tasked with saving the nation no matter the cost.”

If that’s not enough to shock you, the first official trailer for the game is introduced along a similar theme: “This is the day we’ve been waiting for. This is for the jobs you’ve streamlined, the debts you’ve collected, this is for the homes you foreclosed on, the bailouts you took. We are the true patriots. It’s time for a new balance of power. You may not answer to the government, but you will answer to us.”

There may be a few factions within the OWS movement calling for direct action against the government, but they are fair game for law enforcement. But generalizing all OWS-type protesters as terrorists that have gone over the edge and are acting in the extreme is, well, extreme. For the record, the First Amendment specifically protects speech and even civil disobedience, so long as it such behavior doesn’t violate the law or the rights of other citizens. Or, at least, it used to.

Granted, the video game isn’t calling the “terrorist” group Occupy Wall Street, but we think you get the picture, based on the set-up plot of the game. And that, to us, is the real problem here.

#OccupyWallStreet – ‘The Marines are Coming to PROTECT the Protestors’

October 1, 2011 – TAMPA, FL – The Occupy Wall Street movement may have just received an unexpected surprise – United States Army and Marine troops are reportedly on their way to various protest locations to support the movement and to protect the protesters.

Army serviceman  Ward Reilly posted the following on Facebook:

“I’m heading up there tonight in my dress blues. So far, 15 of my fellow marine buddies are meeting me there, also in Uniform.

I want to send the following message to Wall St and Congress:

I didn’t fight for Wall St. I fought for America. Now it’s Congress’ turn.

My true hope, though, is that we Veterans can act as first line of defense between the police and the protester. If they want to get to some protesters so they can mace them, they will have to get through the Fucking Marine Corps first. Let’s see a cop mace a bunch of decorated war vets.

I apologize now for typos and errors. Typing this on iPhone whilst heading to NYC. We can organize once we’re there. That’s what we do best.If you see someone in uniform, gather together.

A formation will be held tonight at 10PM.

We all took an oath to uphold, protect and defend the constitution of this country. That’s what we will be doing.

Hope to see you there!!”

Reilly added, “Please note…this is from another veteran, NOT ME. (I was Army, he’s a Marine)…and I am on my way to DC, not NYC. :>) ….but this is fantastic, and he’s not a VFP guy….just a soldier that is outraged by what we have become in this country, as it should be.

“A LOT of veterans get it,” Reilly stated. “Only one third of one percent of our citizens serve in the military, and we are the ones who sacrifice MUCH, and all we ask in return is that civilians control the people they elect. (miserable failure so far) But …the image of police, or anyone else, pepper spraying veterans or even confronting them, is “priceless” as they say, and will help slap this country into seeing what we have become.(totally insane, politically and police-state-wise). And EXACTLY what I have requested from my brother and sister veterans in DC Oct.6.”

Reilly added an edited statement: “I’m no longer in active duty or in any way contractually indebted to the military. Nor are any of my friends that are joining me.

To the officers’ of this thread: I’m aware of the potential, maybe inevitable trouble I can get in. So too are my friends.

I don’t really care about the debate here, the upvotes, the downvotes or anything in here really. Mental masturbation is awesome and all. But fucking hell people get off reddit and do something about it. The decision is made. I just figured reddit to be a useful tool to get the attention of a good amount of veterans.”

This tipping point could be the defining moment that sends the Occupy Wall Street movement into perpetual motion.

In this writer’s opinion, these servicemen, and any other troops who join in, are heroes, just like the everyday heroes who have been there from day 1 along with those who are now joining in.

JP Morgan Lobbying for Support?

In related news, JP Morgan recently donated the largest gift in their history of $4.6 million to the NYPD. New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly sent CEO and Chairman Jamie Dimon a note expressing “profound gratitude” for the company’s donation.

Additionally, JP Morgan owns $79 TRILLION in derivatives.

Let’s go back in history. In 1893, bankster JP Morgan funded Tesla’s free energy device. When Morgan found out that there was no way of charging people for it, he suppressed this technology. Shortly afterwards, Morgan became one of the founding fathers of the Federal Reserve Ponzi scheme. The corruption between JP Morgan, the individual and JP Morgan, the corporation, is undivided.

This is the latest in5d alternative news headline: Mayor Bloomberg Claims ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Protesters Are Targeting Bankers Who ‘Are Struggling To Make Ends Meet’ Struggling? What about the 300+ million Americans who are “struggling”? What about the numerous “struggling” people who had their homes foreclosed by the banksters? What about the record number of “struggling” unemployed Americans who cannot find a job in this recession? How dare he…

Civil Right Attorney Sam Cohen is also siding with the Occupy Wall Street movement, adding, “We believe that the NYPD has been applying law incorrectly in a deliberate attempt to disrupt the occupation.”
