The practice that I really like is the revealing of "back room" documents like the ALEC program or the "New Century", so we can see what they are planning and can look for alternatives or ways to screw their plans up. The hide in their offices and believe they are safe, but Anon can see all their files and that has to send shivers. I wonder how Moamar felt as one moment he was the most powerful person in the country and the next he was being hauled out of a drain pipe. Will we be having the pleasure of watching any of our 1% lords and masters making a similar dignified exit? ;-)
The lastest attempt on Fox News is to attempt to tie OWS with ACORN. They are claiming the entire OWS movement is secretly being led by deposed ACORN leaders.
At the same time, my company no longer allows my computer to access current.com. The IT security division claims it has "dangerous" streaming media. So far I can access it from other locations but I imagine that might stop as well. However, I can get to foxnews.com just fine...
"As mayors in cities across the country attempt to evict protesters doing nothing more than exercising their first amendment right to peacefully assemble and air their grievances, the actions of the authorities in Albany reveal that law enforcement officers across the country will no longer uniformly crack down in inappropriate ways.
Why? They don’t view these protests as anarchist or anti-American. They don’t view them as dangerous.
Listen to the words of Albany County District Attorney, David Soares: We don’t prosecute people protesting who so far are peaceful.
Yes, Albany is just one city. But it is the capital of a state that houses the symbolic center of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Additionally, anecdotal notes have been increasing regarding the opposition rank and file officers have to the way in which their superiors are cracking down on peaceful protesters for whom they have been charged to serve and protect.
As more men and women in uniform visually demonstrate before mainstream audiences what has always been true – that Occupy Wall Street is fighting for economic justice for 99 percent of Americans – more citizens will come to not only view the movement favorably, but will support it as well.
As more scenes, such as those in Albany and Times Square, emerge and embed themselves into the body politic’s psyche, Occupy Wall Street will inch closer toward its tipping point."
The Occupy Wall Street protest spread to Times Square
the police come in on horses as barricades fall. Some protesters try to help the police restore the barricades to protect the crowds from the horses. One cop strikes at protesters' hands where they touch the barricades. Fear is quite visible in cops' faces. Footage ends with a heartfelt plea for unity.
