Occupy Wall Street
Peaceful Protesters Maced
by Debbie Menon
Information Clearing House While on a peaceful march near Union Square in downtown Manhattan, multiple female protesters were penned up in the street by orange mesh barricade, then maliciously maced.
The women were peaceful and unarmed. They were secured by barricade with an overwhelming police presence. And they were then sprayed directly in the face with pressurized mace…
WeAreTheOther99 continues to peacefully occupy Lower Manhattan to begin a dialogue with the Top 1% with the goal of a peaceful transition of power back to the People.
This can no longer be stopped. But be advised, this will not be televised.
This is America? This is America?

Occupy Wall Street Protestors Take Fight to Broadway; 80 arrested
By Elisha Maldonado, political reporter | September 25, 2011
Protesters associated with the Occupy Wall Street movement took an impromptu march up Broadway, clashing with police officers, and getting arrested in the process.
At least 80 protestors involved with the movement were detained near Union Square in Manhattan; some accusing the police officers of using overly-aggressive tactics as they fought to control the demonstrators who left their camp near Wall Street to march up Broadway. Police say the arrests were mostly for blocking traffic; charges included disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Protest spokesman Patrick Bruner criticized the police response as “exceedingly violent” and said the protesters sought to remain peaceful.
Other protesters were yelling, “Banks got bailed out, we got sold out,” and called on shoppers to join them in their march.
The protesters, who have been camped out on Wall Street since last Saturday, have been sleeping on cardboard boxes, and eating takeaway dinners paid for by donations to their cause. Nonetheless, their numbers have dwindled from the nearly 1,500 they started with; they roughly now have 200. Initially, the called for 20,000 protesters to camp and protest with them.
“They’re angry at what’s going on in the world,” Rich Marini, 37, a software writer from Great Kills who has been involved in the protest, was quoted in the Daily Mail. “But it’s a good atmosphere. They have a sense of love with each other.”
Apparently the movement, which is an offshoot of online magazine AdBusters, is angered by what it calls the principle of “profit over and above all else.” This, they say, has dominated America’s economic policies and the way in which Americans view culture and humanity.
Posts on the Web site compare the group’s efforts to those used in pro-democracy movements across the Middle East, known as the Arab Spring.
“On the 17th of September, we want to see 20,000 people to flood into lower Manhattan, set up beds, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months,” one statement read. “Like our brothers and sisters in Egypt, Greece, Spain, and Iceland, we plan to use the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic of mass occupation to restore democracy in America. We also encourage the use of nonviolence to achieve our ends and maximize the safety of all participants.”
It’s unclear exactly what the protesters will ask for in exchange for leaving Wall Street.
“More than having any specific demand, per se, I think the purpose of Sept. 17, for many of us who are helping to organize it and people who are coming out, is to begin a conversation, as citizens, as people affected by this financial system in collapse, as to how we’re going to fix it, as to what we’re going to do in order to make it work for us again,” said Justin Wedes, an event organizer.
The rally itself was first called for by Adbusters in July.
Protests kick off 1 month earlier than planned:

Thank you for covering this issue, Debbie. I heard that 90 police officers did not show up for work today to protest this incident. It does not place the NYPD in a positive light and citizens will begin to wonder who they are representing. The right to peacefully protest and gather is guaranteed under the constitution…violent behavior by the police will only perpetrate more violence. Doug

Mayor Bloomberg, a height challenged ethnic fascist, channels his inner Napoleon in protection of his Marie Antoinette bankers.
Once the city’s finest, the NYPD have become, in the words of TMZ, “thugalicious.”
No matter how it is spun, New York has become an ugly place.
Diversity in the mainstream media is now required simply to counter complete delusion.
Moving toward a Robespierre moment?

Ben “Big Brother” Bernanke Goes Watergate, Prepares To Eavesdrop On Everything Mentioning The Fed
The Federal Reserve Bank of the United States, which in a Request for Proposals filed to companies that are Fed vendors, is requesting the creation of a “Social Listening Platform” whose function is to “gather data from various social media outlets and news sources.” It will “monitor billions of conversations and generate text analytics based on predefined criteria.”

Fire that goon Kelly. This could not have happened with his permission and full knowledge. As Lawence said last night on his show…if this had been armed teabaggers there would this police violence. Remember when Cheney’s daughter set up a grand stand on Wall Street, compliments of the Police Dept? This occupation is a mix of young Ron Paul Supporters, progressives, moderates etc….that is precisely what Wall Street and corporate elites are worried about…when right and left meet on any topic…thats dangerous to the status quo. We all know since 911 the NYPD has become militarized. Kelly the chief of police stated on a Sunday talk show the NYPD have the ability to take out a plane in the air…hummmm did they have that ability on 911?

200 is so disappointing considering the size of NYC. We here in Madison with a population much smaller had thousands. What’s wrong with NYC? Our police were marching with us when they were off duty! Of course it was about union rights but its really just another battle in class warfare like the Wall St. protest.

Yes I agree, but they are going into the lion’s den whereas you are on the periphery (and thank you for being there) but there is a big difference. This is home base for the FRBNY and Goldman Sachs, which should be the targets. Eventually they will be, but first things first.

That is so true! Thanks for pointing that out. I guess I thought New Yorkers were more tenacious than that.

Keep the ( U.S.) flag off the damn ground dumb asses!
September 27, 2011 – 5:25 pm
Don’t you think it’s symbolic of the trampling of our rights? What does the flag represent if the country is a hollow shell?

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

More than 400 years ago a great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words, they are perspectives. So if you’ve seen nothing, if the crimes of government remain unknown to you, then I suggest you allow the fifth of November to pass unmarked.

Someone said back in the 1990′s , ” It’s too late to fix the system and too early to just shoot the bastards

Is it still too early?

It was reported here Australia by ‘Your Money Your Call’ that only 200 protestors were there.The criminal elites continue to spin the lies.

America, the land of the free and democracy!
In Europe there are huge demonstration, tens of thousands, not just a few hundred as in NYC, and you can never see this kind of police brutality.
As the pictures of this protest go around the world, they prove the lie we live in. Next time make sure hundred thousands will march on Wall Street to make the police an ineffective tool of the zionist power. Would they dare to treat such a huge crowd the same way?
